“I will show the team tomorrow we could have been on the front foot,” Erik ten Hag said after the Man City defeat, as quoted by BBC reporter Shamoon Hafez.
“In the first goal, we won the ball and could have created a chance and gave it away. That is unacceptable.
“It is a process, when you are not concentrated against Man City you get hammered, that is what happened. You cause your own problems, you get hammered.

“I wanted to change the attitude of the team, we were braver in the second half, created chances and scored three goals. Only from mistakes you learn, we have to do better in the next game.
“All the credit to City but it is nothing to do with City, our performance was not good. As individuals, they were not convinced and did not support each other. A lack of fight and spirit in the team.

“There are also positives, but in this moment I can’t think like that. “We let the fans down, we let ourselves down and I am hugely disappointed. We have to live with that and learn from it.”
For a second time this season, United were 4-0 down after the first half. After a devastating defeat to Brentford, they suffered the same fate against Man City who ended up winning 6-3.
