Ten Hag Hails United FA Cup Triumph as Potential Turning Point

by: EdwardB


Man United manager Erik ten Hag believes his team’s dramatic FA Cup quarter-final victory over Liverpool could be a turning point in their season. United came from behind twice to win 4-3 in extra time, with Amad Diallo scoring the match-winning goal in the 120th minute.

United Comeback and Character

United showed great character to come from behind twice in the match. They trailed 2-1 in normal time but equalized through Antony in the 73rd minute. Liverpool then took the lead again in extra time through Mohamed Salah, but United refused to give up and scored twice more through Fred and Diallo to secure the victory.

Ten Hag was full of praise for his team’s resilience and determination. It was a great victory for us, Ten Hag said. We showed a great character to come from behind twice. This might be a turning point for us.

United Performance

Ten Hag also praised his team’s performance, particularly in the first 35 minutes of the match. We played some of our best football of the season in the first half, he said. We had a plenty of chances and could have scored more goals.

However, United also showed some defensive lapses that allowed Liverpool to get back into the game. We need to be more consistent in our defending, said Ten Hag. But overall, I am really satisfied with the performance.

Liverpool Disappointment

Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp was disappointed with his team’s performance, particularly in extra time. We didn’t play well in extra time, he said. We are tired and made some mistakes.

Klopp also praised United’s performance, saying they deserved to win the match. They were the better team on that night, he said. They fought hard and created more chances than us.


Ten Hag will hope that the FA Cup victory can be a turning point for United’s season. They have now won four matches in a row and are starting to find some form. United will face Coventry in the semi-finals of the FA Cup and will be confident of reaching the final.

Liverpool, meanwhile, will be disappointed to have seen their quadruple dreams ended. However, they are still in the race for the Premier League title and will be looking to bounce back from this defeat in their remaining matches.
