Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag is delighted with our 1-0 win over FC Copenhagen, but admits United were lucky thanks to Andree Onana’s last-gasp penalty save.

Manchester United secured a hard-fought win over the Danish side, with Harry Maguire heading home the winner.

“Of course it is incredible and a great night. Especially in the dying second when you concede a penalty, but a brilliant save from Andre Onana,” Ten Hag told TNT Sports.

“Those players, Harry Maguire played a good game and Andre Onana as well. He had an important save just after half-time. We should have got a penalty on Marcus Rashford and I do not know why it was not a penalty.

“It was onside, but he did not give a penalty. Finally we dealt with it and it is a step up. Few weeks ago we got out of rhythm from referees decisions.

“A poor first-half, but we stayed calm and in the second-half we stepped up and made more chances than them. It was a narrow escape in the end.”
