Ten Hag: We played 'so good' but decisions keep going against us

Erik ten Hag described Manchester United's performance in their 4-3 defeat at FC Copenhagen as "very good" and pinned the blame for the result on the officials.

United lost for the third time in four Champions League games to leave their hopes of qualifying from Group A hanging by a thread.

Ten Hag's side led 2-0 before being pegged back to 2-2 after Marcus Rashford was sent off. Bruno Fernandes put United 3-2 ahead but the Premier League side again crumbled at the end of the second half, conceding three or more goals in a match for the seventh time this season

But despite their slim chances of progressing from a group that they were heavy favourites to negotiate, Ten Hag was pleased with much of what he saw from his side. 

"We are very disappointed because we played very good," he said. "We started the game so well. Our best minutes of the season. We are winning the game and the red card changes everything."

Copenhagen had more of the possession and registered 16 shots to United's nine, but Ten Hag insisted: "It's a game of mistakes. I wouldn't say we did everything right but there are a lot of positives.

"Even with 10 men we were dictating the game. We played very good."
