Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag admitted that his side were not at their best against Fulham at the weekend.
The Red Devils had to rely on a penalty and two Fulham red cards to seal a 3-1 win against the Cottagers.
Fulham did have a second half lead, and chances to extend it, but a Willian red card and penalty turned the game in United’s favor.
Post-game, Ten Hag told reporters: “In possession, we could have been better.
“Out of possession, we were excellent. We came under pressure, gave away some set pieces and then conceded the goal. David de Gea kept us in the game after we conceded.”
“We created great opportunities and at half-time, we should have been up because I can’t remember a save from David in the first half,” he added.
“And in second half, we came [into] difficulties out of the dressing room. It was tough. We conceded the goal from the set play and we needed David to survive the game because he had two great saves.
“And then the key moment it was a great attacking transition and really well done by Antony, really well done by Jadon (Sancho), and it was a clear and obvious penalty.”
