The Red Devils had already been humiliated in their opening fixture against Brighton at Old Trafford last week and looked to right their wrongs on Saturday evening.
Four first-half goals from The Bees were a testament to how embarrassingly pathetic this Manchester United side was on the evening.
And it could’ve been more, if the hosts had been clinical enough. From sloppy defending to lose passes as well as obvious misunderstanding of who’s job was is what?, the Red Devils had themselves to blame in what was the most shambolic first halves we’ve ever seen them play in.
Prior to the game, United fans were hopeful that the loss to Brighton was a wake up call to remind Ten Hag’s players that pre=season as officially over, and as such, changes were expected from the men in Red.
Despite that defeat, Ten Hag’s men looked washed and started slowly, with a number of players looking disjointed and failing to even put up a fight, talkless of hoping to get a result.
