The Reds were victorious at Turf Moor as a stunning Bruno Fernandes volley earned our side a 1-0 triumph over Burnley.

Back to winning ways after a few tough results in recent weeks, Ten Hag believes this result will galvanise his team with the focus now shifting to Tuesday night's Carabao Cup game at home to Crystal Palace.

Ten Hag: Our spirit was fabulous

Erik ten Hag praises his side's determination, after United defeated Burnley at Turf Moor...


"This will give them, give us, confidence? Absolutely. But yeah, it's only one win, and on Tuesday is the next game."


“Oh, it was a brilliant goal and was really lovely play, but I know in other games like Munich, Arsenal, we played very good spells in the game too. But then we gave easy goals away. And as I said, there was a lot against us, like tonight again, like a disallowed goal. And I will not say that was a goal or not a goal or that it was not fair, but it was against us. And we have seen so many things in the last couple of weeks against us and then all the injuries, we have to deal with it. And so that has to be the first step up.”


"He really showed personality. He was really calm and composed. He did everything right in and out of possession and leads his back line. I thought it was a very good performance.”


"Yeah, of course it is a concern, that when you have so many injuries, you have a problem already in the routines of your game. You bring players in. They are new like Reguilon, like Hojlund. And you can't bring them slowly into the routines of the team. Now, there are many players that are in positions they are not used to playing together. Like tonight, Hannibal, who did a perfect job.”


"It's about winning. And I just thought in the last week there was a lot against us. But you have to turn that and it's only up to us. And we knew that and we said that to the team. The team acknowledged it and we have seen the answer on the pitch."


“Reguilon was ill, but he wanted to play and that tells you something about the character and the spirit they want to show. He wanted to support the team and he wanted to contribute.”


"He brought what I hoped he could do, and I've seen it in pre-season, he brings a lot of energy to the team. His pressing with Rasmus Hojlund was very good. It was excellent."
