Manchester United suffered one of their worst defeats in Premier League history as Erik ten Hag's side barely laid a glove on Brentford in a 4-0 defeat on August 13.

Red Devils shamed

Erik ten Hag became the first Red Devils manager to lose his first two games at the helm since John Chapman in November 1921. 

Any manager’s nightmare

Only two teams had previously scored four first-half goals against United in a Premier League game; Tottenham in October 2020 and Liverpool in October 2021.

Fastest 150 wickets in One-Day International Match

Outplayed in 1st half

The result is that United have begun a top-flight campaign with back-to-back defeats for the first time since 1992-93, the Premier League's inaugural season.

United’s worst season yet?

Brentford secured their first victory against Manchester United in any competition since a 2-0 FA Cup win back in February 1938, having gone winless in seven against the Red Devils prior to this outing.

Big feat for Brentford

Brentford secured their biggest top-flight victory since beating Grimsby Town 6-1 back in April 1938.

More history for Brentford

Manchester United have lost seven consecutive away games for the first time since 1936. So far, in 2022, they have conceded 27 away goals. 

More embarrassing numbers

The Brighton loss was bad. This was simply embarrassing. The issues with United's squad were obvious last season, with Ralf Rangnick suggesting they needed 10 new signings to be competitive.

Big question marks

If United cannot make significant improvements over the next eight days, Liverpool could enjoy another Old Trafford mauling.

The Liverpool challenge

In case you are wondering, the last time Manchester United got relegated was in 1974. After two horrible games, it will be interesting to see how they fare for the rest of the season.
