EPL Ten Hag reveals mistake he made during Man Utd’s 2-2 draw with Tottenham. NManchester United manager, Erik ten Hag has admitted he was “a little bit too late” with making his substitutions during their 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur on Thursday night.
According to Ten Hag, “you see Tottenham’s comeback coming”.
United threw away a two-goal lead at half-time to drop points against Spurs.
Goals from Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford before the interval seemed to have won the game. But Pedro Porro’s stunning volley started the comeback in the second half, before Son Heung-min equalised with just 11 minutes to go.
Ten Hag received criticism for his use of substitutions, with changes made after Porro’s goal.
Fred came on to replace Christian Eriksen, as did Anthony Martial and Tyrell Malacia who came on for Sancho and Aaron Wan-Bissaka, with the left-back ultimately at fault for the equalising goal.
Ten Hag told BT Sport: “It was the same as before half-time.
“We lost control, we conceded the goal – you could see it coming and I had already prepared the subs, but I was a little bit too late.”
