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.
