As Manchester United was humbled 4-0 by Brentford on Saturday evening, it marked a new low for the Premier League giants. The Red Devils had one of their worst seasons in years in the 2021-22 and they now look like something worse is yet to come for the club and Erik ten Hag.

All four goals that Manchester United conceded were in the first half of the match itself. Their manager, Erik ten Hag substituted Lisandro Martinez, Fred and Luke Shaw at the beginning of the second half, but United could not bridge the gap in the second half, despite having Cristiano Ronaldo in the lineup.

It was Manchester United’s second defeat of the season, meaning they are currently without a victory in the new season. However, it is not the only unfortunate record the Red Devils created in the evening.

Manchester United are now also goalless in their first two Premier League fixtures in the 2022-23 season. It is the first time since the 1989-90 season that the club have remained goalless in the first two matches of a new season.

Brentford has been one of the most exciting sides in the Premier League since they secured promotion to the top flight. They are also the ex-employers of Christian Eriksen, who was present on the pitch in the 4-0 drubbing on Saturday. However, Manchester United registered a shocking record against them on Saturday evening.

This was the first time in Manchester United’s history since the 1938 FA Cup when they lost against the West London side. However, Saturday was also the first time in Manchester United’s history when they conceded four goals against Brentford.

Brentford is also the third team to score four goals against Manchester United in the first half of a Premier League match. The first two teams are Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool, who achieved it in October 2020 and October 2021 respectively.

The defeat against Brentford on August 13 also marked the first time since 1992 when Manchester United would finish a day at the bottom of the Premier League table.
