This is the flop of this start to the Premier League championship.
In reconstruction after a failed last season (6th), Manchester United continues its slow drift.
On the first day, the Red Devils lost against Brighton (1-2).
"I can't ask the fans to be patient.
I hope they will, because they want to see a winning team and that's why I'm here.
I am convinced that I will get there, I have done it everywhere, ”said new coach Erik ten Hag, who arrived from Ajax Amsterdam this summer, before the match in Brentford on Saturday.
Compared to the 1st day, Ten Hag had changed system, going from 4-2-3-1 to 4-3-3.
Cristiano Ronaldo is a starter with Rashford, surveyed by PSG, on the left and Sancho on the right.
A trio Fernandes - Fred - Eriksen (who was whistled by his former public) manages the environment.
But instead of bouncing back, Manchester United sank and still despairing of their fans.
The construction site looks huge
An error by Gea from the 10th minute, missed raises, feverishness and no offensive inspiration… The Red Devils experienced a nightmare in the first period.
In twenty-five minutes, Brentford scored four goals through Dasilva (10th), Jensen (18th), Mee (30th), and Mbeumo (35th).
4-0, at the break, the public at Brentford Community Stadium experienced an incredible first half.
Curled, Manchester United where the coach made three changes at the break, just stopped the bleeding in the second half.
But the work promises to be enormous for Ten Hag.
It is not this new debacle that will lower the tension after a summer weighed down by Ronaldo's departure desires and a transfer window which has been delayed even if Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez have arrived.
"It was better to bring players in earlier, because then you start the process faster, and now in the midfield and attack sectors, you can see that when we have an injury, we have a problem.
It was my preference to have these recruits earlier, but in the end, the season is long and you have to recruit the right players,” Ten Hag said at a press conference on Friday.
Manchester United is hopeless and worrying.
