Erik ten Hag led Manchester United team were in action yesterday in their second league game of the new English Premier League season away from home against Brentford at the Brentford Community Stadium.
The Red Devils were left disappointed at the end of the game as they failed to secure a point in their first two league openers which now placed them at the bottom spot on the table.
Manchester United in the team were not convincing despite playing under the instructions of a new manager which was the case for them in the last campaign where they experienced mixed run of form.
The Erik ten Hag’s side in the game set an unwanted record as they conceded four goals in the first half of a Premier League away game for the first time ever in their history.
First half goals from Josh Dasilva, Mathias Jensen, Ben Mee and Bryan Mbeumo scored in the 10th, 18th, 30th and 35th minute respectively made it four goals to nil going into the half time break.
The visitor in the second half were able to soak the pressure as they put up some more fighting spirit a d as such maintained the scoreline without conceding more goals which as a result ended the game four goals to nil at full time.
However, the side attraction that got people’s attention after the 4th goal was scored was Cristiano Ronaldo’s reaction to the goal which was massive and sent a whole lot of messages.
Cristiano Ronaldo after the 4th goal was conceded by his team could not hold it back as he expressed his disappointment from his team’s level of delivery with this shown on his facial reactions and expression, as he couldn’t do anything to help his team who were ruthlessly thrashed by the Bees.
Cristiano Ronaldo cut a frustrated figure and threw his hands in the air when Ryan Mbeumo slotted in Brentford’s 4th goal to hand Manchester United an uphill task in the second half.
The 37 year old will then be hoping to be back better and stronger for his team so as to help them get back to winning ways in their next game coming up against Liverpool in continuation of their pursuit in the competition.
