The Red Devils were supposed to build on their success from the previous season, but it appears their problems have caught up with them. United has had a difficult beginning to the season. They lost three of their first five Premier League contests and their first Champions League match against Bayern Munich on Wednesday.
Manchester United’s Poor Run Continues In the New Ten Hag’s Era
They will need to win the following games to inspire confidence in the team. The Red Devils have a favorable upcoming schedule. This weekend, they are on the road in Burnley. After that, they have consecutive home games against Crystal Palace and Brentford before traveling to Sheffield United.
Since Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure, United have made a series of poor coaching appointments. Ten Hag’s arrival last season gave the club reason for optimism. After he won his first championship in six years, things appeared to improve off the field.
However, it appears that they are growing worse this season rather than improving and becoming a title contender.
The strikers have always struggled to score goals, and United scored the fewest goals in the Premier League among the top six teams last season with 58. The Dutchman took over last summer, and his supervisor, Ralf Rangnick, had already complained about the problem before he arrived.
United has lost three consecutive games for the first time since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over in 2019. They’re still on bad terms with their star Jadon Sancho. Antony is not included in the squad pending investigations on physical violence allegations brought by an ex-partner.
Bayern Munich defeated a failing Manchester United team 4-3 on Wednesday to get off to a strong start in Group A of the Champions League.
United had previously lost 3-1 to Brighton & Hove Albion and Arsenal. This is the first time they have allowed three or more goals in three consecutive games since 1978.
Despite the team’s average play, Erik Ten Hag has decided to give up on Jadon Sancho. Manchester United is prepared to sell him in January to the highest bidder.
Sancho got back at Ten Hag about why he wasn’t in the team to play Arsenal on September 3. Sancho was then dismissed from the first-team squad. The player claimed on social media that the Dutchman was spreading “completely false” rumors about him and using him as a “scapegoat” for the team’s losses.
United is back where they began. They are just as awful defensively, if not worse than they were at the start of the previous season, and they lack offensive creativity. Marcus Rashford is the only player who appears capable of causing significant damage on the front. Bruno Fernandes, Christian Eriksen, and Casemiro all appear without their prowess.
Ten Hag will not allow Sancho to reunite with the squad. United’s remark regarding Sancho was truthful, indicating that they believe the ball is in his court. Jadon Sancho will continue to train separately from the rest of the first-team squad until a situation with the team’s discipline is resolved.
This upcoming weekend, Manchester United must win a game. Erik ten Hag must win because Manchester United supporters are losing faith with each loss and subpar performance. Manchester United’s travel to Burnley appears to be an opportunity for them to get their season back on track.
