It has gone from bad to worse for erratic Manchester United as they were stunned 4-0 by Brentford.
The four first-half goals have handed Manchester United’s new head coach Erik ten Hag a second consecutive defeat to open the season.
Josh Dasliva’s 10th-minute shot from the edge of the area squirmed through David de Gea’s grasp and trickled over the line.
Brentford added a second eight minutes later, as Mathias Jensen capitalised on another defensive mistake by United to fire into the bottom corner.
Ben Mee headed in to make it 3-0 on the half-hour, before Bryan Mbeumo finished following a quick counter-attack to earn Brentford their first-ever top-flight win over the Red Devils.
In fact, it was Brentford’s first victory over Man Utd in any competition since a 2-0 FA Cup win in February 1938.
It also means Man Utd have lost their opening two Premier League fixtures for the first time since the 1992/93 campaign.
