Eriksen pinpoints the big difference
Christian Eriksen has praised his Manchester United team-mates for the intensity shown in the 2-1 win against Liverpool.
The Denmark midfielder pointed out the stark difference between our first win of the season and last week’s loss to his former club, Brentford.
"I think our intensity compared to the Brentford game [was the biggest difference],” he said post-match to club media.
"Obviously, we made a few mistakes against them that gave them the advantage and, today, we started on the front foot and were the better team in the first half.”
Eriksen has also applauded the togetherness in the squad that he feels both on and off the pitch.
"I think it [the togetherness] started after losing two games," he admitted.
"This has been about coming together and getting back to the basics. We needed to show that we were better doing the basics and I think we did that today.”
He added: “Of course, with the South American and a bit of Spanish style there was a lot of passion towards the defensive side, but also the offensive side, we tried to do whatever we could.
“We have some very quick players and how we played today, and how Liverpool play, suited us as well.
“It's great to play with players who want to play football and run."
