Wagner feels his team could have done better against Man United
Huddersfield Town went down 3-1 to Manchester United at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Boxing Day. Nemanja Matic put the home side in the lead before the half-hour mark and Paul Pogba sealed the game with a brace in the second half. Mathias Jorgensen pulled one back with two minutes left but that was just a mere consolation.
The Terriers currently sit rock-bottom in the relegation zone and suffered their 13th defeat of the season but manager David Wagner felt that his team could have got more out of the game if they would have been more clinical.
“I’m not sure it was a deserved defeat,” Wagner told BBC Sport. “We played very well. We had the first clear-cut chance and another one before half-time.
“The second half, we had unbelievable opportunities. I don’t know how many we had. This is our problem. It was our problem again today.
“The players played very well. I’m very happy they showed the reaction after losing last week when we weren’t at our best.
“It was a very good performance, but we lost the game. They have world-class players. Paul Pogba’s goals were world-class and so was De Gea’s save.
“We wanted to play football against them and give them a fight and that’s what the players did. If we were clinical, we could have got something out of the game.”
