Meltdown: Man United feels heat after 4-0 loss at Brentford

Temperatures soared in England on Saturday and nobody was feeling the warmth greater than Manchester United’s newest supervisor, Erik ten Hag.

On one other humiliating day for a large membership in freefall, United conceded 4 targets within the first 35 minutes and was swept apart in a 4-0 loss at Brentford within the Premier League.

It’s two matches, two losses to this point for Ten Hag, the Dutchman who arrived from Ajax in a daring offseason appointment as United’s fifth supervisor in 9 years and appeared shell-shocked within the dug-out because the targets poured in at Brentford Community Stadium.

It was comprehensible, too. United had by no means gone into halftime of a Premier League match trailing 4-0. Never earlier than within the Premier League had United conceded so many targets so rapidly.

There had been so many particular person errors — goalkeeper David de Gea let a weak shot dribble beneath him for the primary aim, Christian Eriksen was tackled inside his personal field previous to the second, and Brentford had two free headers at a nook for the third — that Ten Hag in all probability needed to alter most of his crew at halftime.

He made three halftime substitutions, with Cristiano Ronaldo — again in United’s crew after an offseason when he pushed to depart the membership — staying on and taking part in the complete match. He wore a pissed off look all through.
