Man United Midfielder Eriksen - We Have To Turn it Around.

Man United star Christian Eriksen's thoughts on their 3-1 defeat against Brighton

Manchester United midfielder Christian Eriksen shared his thoughts on the team's 3-1 loss to Brighton at Old Trafford, their first home defeat in over a year, describing it as a tough result to accept.

The dissatisfaction of the crowd became evident when manager Erik ten Hag's substitution decision led to boos from fans. United struggled to regain their footing, conceding goals to Danny Welbeck, Pascal Gross, and Joao Pedro.

Despite a goal from young talent Hannibal Mejbri offering a glimmer of hope, the Red Devils continued to grapple with defensive challenges. Goalkeeper Andre Onana made four crucial saves, but it wasn't enough to turn the tide.

This defeat raised concerns as United has now conceded 10 goals in their last four games and allowed more than one goal in four successive league matches for the first time since 1979.

Reflecting on the loss at the Theatre of Dreams, United midfielder Eriksen told BBC Match of the Day: "It is a heavy one. We have to look at ourselves. We changed some things but we are disappointed.

"In the first half, we had a lot of moments and good control. They scored with their first chance, and their possession-based style made us chase the ball. However, we still had chances to get back into the game," he added.

When asked about the team's strategy to overcome their current struggles, the Dane emphasised the importance of attention to detail. He pointed out: "The small things. We had the offside at Arsenal and today when we scored but it was out of play. The small things we are missing and a bit of luck to get over the line and get something out of the effort we put in."

Eriksen concluded by addressing the team's early-season challenges, saying: "Any game at the start of the season, doesn't matter who you play, is very important. We focus on our games and whoever we play we want to win. But we have lost three already and we have to change that."
