Burnley vs Man United: What has been said?

Ten Hag was keen to play down United’s mammoth 31-game unbeaten run at Old Trafford coming to an end against Brighton.

He told talkSPORT: “As always, we are disappointed with every game we lose and today it was not necessary to lose because we had our chances and there were really small margins.

“But not on our side, you have to accept that and we have to move forward.

“Keep working hard and stick to the plan, sticking together, that’s important as well, and then it will come, we will turn this.”
