Erik ten Hag has stated that Manchester United have “everything is in their hands” as they seek to qualify for the Champions League.
The Red Devils’ manager spoke with the press after his team slipped up for a second time in four days to open the door to Liverpool.
United remain one point ahead of Jurgen Klopp’s men, but now only have one game in hand, following a 1-0 defeat at West Ham on Sunday.
It means Ten Hag’s men have lost back-to-back league games while Liverpool are on a six-match winning run.
When asked if Liverpool’s run was affecting his squad, Ten Hag said they are not troubled by Klopp’s side because the problem is internal.
He said; “It’s not about Liverpool; it’s about us because if you look at the table, we have everything in our hands.
“If we bring our performance and we bring our standards we will win games. We don’t have to look to others, we have to look to ourselves, and we have to find a way to get back to our levels.
“Nothing changes. We could have made it easier if we had won, but we need three wins in four games. Everything is in our hands. We have to believe.”
