Christian Eriksen on Nottingham Forest defeat: 'We tried our best'

Manchester United's inconsistent season took another turn for the worse on Saturday, falling 2-1 to Nottingham Forest in a frustrating display. Midfielder Christian Eriksen, however, wasn't buying claims of lackluster effort, insisting the team "tried their best."

His comments, quoted by the BBC, struck a discordant note with fans already fuming over the result. "This season has been a rollercoaster," Eriksen admitted, "One step forward, two steps back, and that's exactly how it felt today."

Despite United's dominance in possession and chances created, Forest capitalized on sloppy mistakes and defensive vulnerabilities. "We had our opportunities," Eriksen acknowledged, "but they did more with less."

He pointed to missed goals and a stubborn Forest defense as key factors: "It takes just a few chances to change a game, and right now, they just won't go in for us."

But optimism
for a turnaround wasn't completely absent. "Things will heal, they'll get better," Eriksen promised. "We just have to keep working hard. Sometimes, it just goes against you."

However, critics will point to Eriksen's own performance as a prime example of the issues plaguing United. He struggled against Forest's midfield, overrun and prone to mistakes. Coupled with a lack of creativity from the midfield alongside him, United found themselves frustrated at every turn.

The result leaves United languishing in the mid-table, a far cry from their early-season aspirations. Whether Eriksen's "tried our best" will appease angry fans remains to be seen, but one thing is clear: Manchester United face an uphill battle if they want to salvage their season.
