Brentford vs. Manchester United – Football Match Report – August 13, 2022

Manchester United plummeted to bottom of the Premier League table after a 4-0 win at Brentford in Cristiano Ronaldo’s first start of the 2022-23 season on Saturday.

United’s disastrous afternoon started in typical fashion when David de Gea allowed Josh Dasilva’s tame, minor effort through his hands and into the back of the net after 10 minutes.

Eight minutes later, the weak United defense had doubled their deficit. Ex-Brentford player Christian Eriksen, who was booed by the home fans early in the game, was pushed off the ball by Mathias Jensen after a poor pass from De Gea and the midfielder, sending the United player home the wrong way.

After half an hour, Brentford had his third. Even worse defenses stalled United’s defense as Ivan Toney headed a corner back over the goal and Ben Mee beat Lisandro Martinez to head in from close range.

Thomas Frank’s side continued the attack and scored the fourth goal five minutes later. In a perfectly executed counterattack, Ivan Toney shoved the ball to Brian Mbuemo, who shrugged off a tackle and shot past De Gea.

It was the first time in Premier League history that United had conceded four goals away in the first half. Ten Hag’s side managed to stem the tide of goals conceded in the second half but failed to convert their chances, which would have restored some pride.

The demolition was Brentford’s first win against United in all competitions since a 2-0 FA Cup win in February 1938. Former Ajax manager Ten Hag is the first United manager in over 100 years to lose his first two games.
