When asked if he’s been able to improve things, Rangnick added: “Well, I think we did.
“I mean, we had moments and situations in games and spells where we played well, where we showed that there is that, yeah, the team would be able to play on a higher level.
“If I just think about games that we played against Crystal Palace, the first game, against West Ham, against Tottenham, away at Leeds, until the 70th minute away at Aston Villa.
“I think we had quite a few games where we really played well, not only with regard to the result but also the way that we played together as a team, but what we couldn’t do is do it in a sustainable way and over a longer period of time and yes, I’m disappointed about that, I would have thought that we would be able to play sustainably on a higher level.
“I’m not happy with that myself, for sure, but this is what we will try to do in the rest of the season.”
