Man Utd boss Rangnick: When you're 2-0 ahead you must defend better

Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick says it’s difficult to find positives after their 2-2 draw at Aston Villa.

United blew a 2-0 lead in the final minutes for the point.

Rangnick said, “It is very difficult to find positives after these 95 minutes. I felt it was the best game since I came here, in the first half for 30 minutes we dominated the game. We had taken took some steps forward but have a few things to do better.

“The plan was to press them in the midzone and we did that very well in the first 30 minutes, and control the ball, and those were the positives. When you are 2-0 up you have to defend better than we did in the last 15 minutes.

“We gave away too many balls at times in the last 15 minutes, we were not as compact as before and conceded the two goals. In the last 15 minutes before half time we were not as courageous to step up, it was better in the second half and then you have to take the three points home. It feels like a defeat, to be honest.

“Right now is very disappointed but what we showed was a step forward but it about getting the results, it feels like two points lost and given away.”
