Manchester United head coach Erik ten Hag has said that his side must "learn" from their "mistakes" following Wednesday's 3-3 draw with Galatasaray in the Champions League.
The 20-time English champions led 2-0 and 3-1 in Turkey but were ultimately made to settle for a share of the spoils, with their hopes of reaching the round of 16 now hanging by a thread.
In order to advance to the next stage, Man United must beat already-qualified Bayern Munich in their final match in the section and hope that Copenhagen and Galatasaray play out a draw.
Ten Hag was prepared to take the blame for his side's latest capitulation in the Champions League, but he said that everyone, including the coaching staff and the players, must learn lessons from the match.
The Cameroonian's position for Galatasaray's third has also been questioned despite the fact that it was an explosive strike from Kerem Akturkoglu.
"I think every goal has its own story. The first is a transition moment, when you speak about quick release, we don't block the middle," he told reporters after the clash in Istanbul.
"The second is a free-kick, an unnecessary free-kick, but then we have to defend the free-kick better and then the third one, we are very good and organised but we got run off and we are in an overload area.
"So it can never happen, these mistakes can't be. In the Champions League, you get punished for it, so you have to learn from it.
"We were winning and then we're losing [points]. We should have taken three points, clear. That is also [the case] in more games: at home against Galatasaray, away in Copenhagen, we played so good.
"I have to make a big compliment to the team but, in the same moment, I have to criticise the team and us: as a coaching staff and me, as a manager. We are not defending good enough. We are leading 3-1 and you can't afford the mistakes we're making, because that makes the difference."
Meanwhile, captain Bruno Fernandes added to TNT Sports: "It's too bad, to be honest. I don't want to be too negative but what we have been doing in the Champions League is not enough. We have to control our games, every time.
"It's not the first game we have like this. Even in Copenhagen, I understand we had one player less but we score for 3-2 and we have to secure the result. We have to understand in this kind of game, on this kind of stage, you have to be smart enough and manage the game better."
Man United will be bidding to continue their impressive run of form in the Premier League when they head to St James' Park on Saturday evening to tackle Newcastle United.No Data Analysis info
