Ten Hag urges Man United to reset after record 7-0 defeat to Liverpool

Just a week after winning the EFL Cup, Man United was thrashed by their arch-rivals Liverpool in a record-breaking 7-0 result, which marks the heaviest defeat in their rivalry history. Embarrassed by his side's performance, Ten Hag vows his side will bounce back.

Erik ten Hag told

Sky Sports

: "

I don't have an explanation. In the first half we were quite in control. At the start of the second half we gave two goals away.

"There was no team anymore. We didn't stick to the plan. There were 11 individuals. I don't know, it's really bad. I have given my opinion [to the players]. It was unprofessional.

"You always have to stick together as a team. We didn't do that. There was no discipline. You have can setbacks, but you have to stick together and do your job.

"We made the wrong decisions that for me is unprofessional. I'm really disappointed and angry. We let our fans down; as a squad, as a team, you cannot allow this.

"You have to stick together and support each other and fight for one another. You have to defend – we didn't do that and that is really unprofessional.

"We have made a lot of progress, but you see what happens when you don't keep the standards. What I have said in the dressing room is that this is unacceptable."

Ahead of their Europa League clash with Real Betis on Thursday, Ten Hag expects a response from his side, adding:

"But also it is only one game, we will bounce back. This team is strong enough and we will reset."
