Ralf Rangnick, Manchester United boss, told BBC MOTD: “The first half was second best in almost every aspect of the game, sloppy passing, missing 50-50 situations and barely winning second balls. We were nervous on the counter-attack and was happy to have a draw at half-time. David de Gea again had some big savings and we showed a different face in the second half.
“Scott McTominay was exemplary and it was positive for the other players contagious, then we could get some counter-attack situations, the second and third goals were very good with the help of Bruno Fernandes. He was not happy with his own decision to take the ball. chip.It would be harder for us if it was 1-1 in that situation.
“We talked about what we had to do, raise our demands and standards regarding our physicality, but our wings would have stayed wider to hold back their wings.”
Speaking to BBC MOTD, Thomas Frank Brentford boss: “Incredibly hard to take. Very, very proud of the team and players. First half we absolutely destroyed Man United, one of the biggest clubs in the country, we is a newly promoted team.We were on the front foot, aggressive, we had six chances and should have been ahead 2-0 and they had zero.It would have been a completely different game.
“A bit of quality and they took a 1-0 lead and after that it was a bit too difficult. The boys kept running, fighting and kept going. Very proud especially in the first half.
“They had to act like we destroyed them, they were not particularly happy with it, they were big favorites before the game. They got a goal and changed the momentum of the game. It tells all about the players, mentality and attitude that we ran Man United and any other day we would win.
“Ivan Toney was good today, he had Covid and was ill for 10 to 14 days and that definitely affected his performances, especially against Aston Villa and Southampton.
“Jonas Lossl did well, he brought a bit of that presence and calm to the team, so satisfied with it.
“I’m just looking at the next game and finishing as high as possible. I’m really disappointed not to pick up the win against a top team.
“I hate losing, especially after performing fantastically.”
