Erik ten Hag has pointed out three refereeing mistakes after Manchester United suffered a 3-1 loss against Arsenal.

Despite a promising performance from Manchester United, Erik ten Hag‘s Reds fell to the sword in the final moments at the Emirates as Declan Rice and Gabriel Jesus scored two late goals to secure three points for Arsenal.

It was a game that was filled with refereeing controversy from Anthony Taylor and his team, something that Ten Hag quickly pointed out post-game.

“We needed a little more luck to win the match,” he said to Sky Sports at full-time. “There was no offside [on Alejandro Garnacho’s goal]. It was the wrong angle.

“Then there was a penalty on Hojlund, then we conceded a goal following a foul on Jonny Evans. It’s so clear and obvious.”

Alejandro Garnacho thought he had grabbed a last-minute winner for his club, but his run was ruled to be offside after the celebrations.

After Rasmus Højlund came on, there was a moment where he was one-on-one with Gabriel Magalhães in the area, he was pretty much tackled to the ground, and no penalty was given.

Finally, for Declan Rice’s winning goal, it can be argued that Jonny Evans, whom the ball deflected off to fly past André Onana, was blocked during the shot and therefore fouled.
