Carabao Cup Why Man Utd eliminated us – Aston Villa coach, Unai Emery. Unai Emery, the head coach of Aston Villa, has provided an explanation for why his club lost Thursday night’s Carabao Cup third-round match against Manchester United.
Emery said that the reason Man United upset his Aston Villa team in the Carabao Cup was because Erik ten Hag’s team performed better in the final 15 minutes of the game, and he added that his players’ attitude deteriorated.
The former Arsenal manager watched as Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes, and Scott McTominay scored to help Man United overcome Aston Villa 4-2 at Old Trafford.
Emery told Sky Sports, “I’m delighted with our performance for 75 minutes; we competed really well, and in the first half we were solid defensively.
“We entered the second half in a strong position. Although we had more offensive possibilities and scored twice, we needed to narrow the gaps between our lines to prevent the match from being opened up when they swiftly scored.
They finished with 15 minutes, which was superior to us. The positive moment we had tonight must be achieved in our minds; only toward the end of the game did our mindset start to wane.
