Manchester United reach a new low and break a woeful Old Trafford record

Man United betting tips

Blown away in the Manchester derby on Sunday afternoon as they slumped to an infamous 3-0 drumming, United also broke what was an infamous Old Trafford record.


United set a new post-Ferguson low

Putting in a nightmare performance at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon, it is no secret that Manchester United find themselves in the midst of another public Premier League struggle.

Already sat eight points adrift of finding a route into the Champions League places, it appears that there is some mounting pressure on Erik ten Hag’s shoulders in the red half of Manchester.

Facing what looks set to be a major uphill battle in their bid to claim another crucial top-four finish this season, United broke yet another unwanted record over the weekend.

In fact, Sunday’s 3-0 drumming against their bitter local rivals means that they have now lost as many Premier League home fixtures since Sir Alex Ferguson retired as they did during his entire 26-year reign in charge.

Ten Hag takes full responsibility for their derby day hammering

Struggling to find any kind of stability since opening the new campaign and already sat eight points adrift of finding a route back into the Champions League spots, ten Hag’s credit in the bank is quickly starting to fade away.

Although the Dutch tactician might have guided Manchester United to EFL Cup success last season, the Red Devils appear a million miles away from mounting any kind of genuine title charge.

While the former Ajax boss might have been largely impressed by his side’s early showing in Sunday’s 3-0 defeat, ten Hag has taken responsibility for United’s infamous loss at Old Trafford.

“First half, we were toe to toe.”

“The penalty changed the game.”

“Second half wasn’t toe to toe, I made a mistake making it more offensive.”

While ten Hag might have gained a string of plaudits after making his Premier League debut last season, the 53-year-old does find some mounting pressure on his shoulders.
