Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag points at turning point in defeat to neighbours Manchester City.
“In the end, for such a big club you felt sorry for Man United because there’s no hope there in the team.
“I don’t see where they can improve, basically. This team has lost confidence, quality and even spirit today. I would say it was not a great fighting spirit from Man United, on top of that.
“I believe where Man United suffers a lot, first of all, is about the quality, the individual quality of the players.
“And I felt today they were very poor to build the game up from the back. They gave the ball so many times to the goalkeeper when they had possibility to play forward. I would stay there.
“Then you make the whole team uncertain and lack confidence because when you feel the fear is behind, they do not want the ball.”
