Erik ten Hag berated a Man Utd player in the Arsenal defeat as a journalist spotted the furious moment

During Manchester United’s 3-1 defeat to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday, manager Erik ten Hag expressed his frustration towards one of the club’s stars.

Declan Rice and Gabriel Jesus scored late goals to secure a dramatic victory for Arsenal in the back-and-forth Premier League contest between the Gunners and United.

Marcus Rashford had initially scored a stunning opener in the first half, which was quickly countered by Martin Odegaard’s well-taken strike.

The match appeared destined for a draw after a penalty decision for a foul on Kai Havertz was overturned following a pitch-side review. Additionally, VAR disallowed substitute Alejandro Garnacho’s late goal due to a marginal offside call.

While Ten Hag voiced his dissatisfaction with a series of decisions that went against his team, he also expressed frustration with some of his attacking players. Specifically, he was reportedly furious with Antony during the match, as the player struggled to contribute effectively in the attacking phase despite making a valuable defensive contribution.And as per the Manchester Evening News’sSam Luckhurst,Ten Hag was furious at Antony during the game.

Luckhurst wrote on X, formally known as Twitter: “Ten Hag gave Antony a rollicking less than a minute ago and the next time he gets the ball he loses it. Bar Rashford with his brilliant goal, the forwards have been off it again.”

However, after the game, Ten Hag blamed United’s defeat on various refereeing decisions, insisting that “everything went against us.”

The Dutchman toldSky Sports: “The performance was alright from us. I thought we played a very good game but everything went against us – then you don’t win the game.

“We needed a little bit more luck to win the game. It was not offside [for Alejandro Garnacho’s goal]. It was the wrong angle.

“It was then a penalty on [Rasmus] Hojlund and then we concede a goal that’s a foul on Jonny Evans. It’s so clear and obvious.

“You can say you need to finish your chances and that you shouldn’t concede a goal after going 1-0 up. This is all true, but I was happy with the performance.”
