Manchester Joined were supposed to challenge for the Chief Association title, yet Erik ten Witch unexpectedly has something important to take care of on and off the field.
The Red Villains were scattered at home once more by Roberto de Zerbi and Brighton and Hove Albion, crushed by the meeting Seagulls as well as themselves also.
Lisandro Martinez had a horrible exhibition, and Man Joined were very much beaten at their own stronghold, with only two successes in their initial five rounds of the Chief Association season. Danny Welbeck had the early opener contrary to the rules, while Pascal Gross and Joao Pedro set the game aside in the last part.
In truth, Man Joined were unfortunate to trail 1-0 at halftime, as Marcus Rashford was electric through the opening 45 minutes and Rasmus Hojlund saw a presentation objective for the club chalked off by means of VAR.
However requiring a reaction after the break, the Red Villains were very much beaten by Brighton, who raged to triumph with an insistent last part. Just youthful Hannibal Mejbrj’s shocker gave Man Joined something to appreciate, yet it wasn’t sufficiently for any unmistakable return from the match.
FULLTIME: Man United 1-3 Brighton
Manchester United were unlucky to be down at halftime after looking the better side through the first 45 minutes, but they were well beaten after the break, and Brighton deserved their 3-1 victory.
The second half was all Roberto De Zerbi, who picks up three more points to move third in the Premier League table, just three back of leaders Man City. United, meanwhile, are way back in 12th, having collected just six points thus far.
Between the off-field issues and the in-game struggles, Erik ten Hag has loads of work to do at Old Trafford. Is his job now under pressure?
