Baptism of fire for Ten Hag At Manchester United

Brighton didn’t dominate today against The Red Devils, the Bees simply preyed on United’s weaknesses. Brentford were aware of Manchester United’s poor technicality in defense, it was there for all to see. From the goalkeeper to the poorly positioned defenders, Manchester United looked like an amateur team trying to learn a new routine. Sure, it’s a new style, and a new manager, but looking sharp and aware should be the bare minimum for these highly paid professionals; that wasn’t the case today.

This game also showed that Thomas Frank worked on how his team could capitalize on Manchester United’s failings against Brighton last week, and it worked wonders today.
