Erik ten Hag was buzzing after his Manchester United side defeated West Ham 3-0 in the Premier League at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

A brilliant goal from Rasmus Højlund and two further finishes from Alejandro Garnacho saw Manchester United sink West Ham in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon during a rocking day at Old Trafford.

With the club having shown multiple false dawns this season that they can turn poor results around, It seems as if Erik ten Hag‘s side are finally starting to click in place, with the club scoring 11 goals in their last three fixtures.

One moment from the game which many feel could become iconic is a photo taken after Garnacho scored his first of the game – proceeding to side on the advertising board to celebrate the goal, he was joined by Højlund and Kobbie Mainoo, where the three then linked arms.

Ten Hag, speaking to the BBC after the game, admitted that he loved the moment when all three youngsters joined together in a representation of the club.

“The future for Manchester United is very good because we have so many [young players] with high potential,” Ten Hag said. “I think that picture encompasses a lot, and when they are together, that is how we want to play football and with that adventure. They can achieve high levels.”

In a further interview with Sky Sports, he was asked if there was ‘something iconic’ about the celebration, to which he replied: “It’s very good you noticed [my smile]. The goal tells a lot about young players, very young, I would say. But if they get used to the Premier League standards, they can do it.

“Every game, it looks like they are growing, they are improving and adapt to a higher level. That is what we need at Manchester United.

“With that celebration, I liked it. It is showing we are doing it [with] togetherness.”
