Manchester United was hammered 4-0 away at Brentford in their second Premier League defeat of the season.
Erik ten Hag has chastised his Manchester United players for committing an ‘unacceptable’ number of individual errors in Saturday’s 4-0 loss to Brentford.
United suffered their second defeat of the new Premier League season, with one of their poorest performances in modern times against one of the top flight’s smaller clubs.
Ten Hag’s team fell behind after 10 minutes to a poor effort from Josh Dasilva, then conceded three times in the next 25 minutes to goals from Mathias Jensen, Ben Mee, and Bryan Mbuemo.
It was a humbling setback for the new United manager, and he was questioned after the game about what went wrong at the Gtech Community Stadium.
“We have to change, that is absolutely evident,” he said following the humbling defeat to beIN Sports. “We have to start better in both games, and we have to keep to the team, stick to the plan, and you have to be switched on from the start. That is exactly what we did not do today.
“I believe you begin the game and then make some individual blunders against which you have no recourse. One error is acceptable, but the second and third mistakes are not.
“It is not acceptable, and it is something we must address. Players must be aware of this.”
