Man United Set Unwanted Premier League Record After Brighton Hammering
- Manchester United have suffered a disappointing start to the new season
- The Old Trafford dweller have managed only six points from five matches played so far
- United will be keen to get their campaign back on track when they play Burnley in their next EPL clash
Manchester United have set an unwanted Premier League record following their 3-1 hammering by Brighton at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils have endured a disastrous start to the new season, winning just two of their opening matches of the campaign.
United's wins have come against Wolves and Nottingham Forest, with Tottenhaam Hotsur, Arsenal, and Brighton picking maximum points against them.
Erik ten Hag's charges went into the Brighton clash with the hope of returning to winning ways, having suffered a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Arsenal before the international break.
However, the Manchester side were condemned to yet a comprehensive defeat at home, with goals from Danny Welbeck, Pascal Gross, and Joao Pedro securing Brighton a comfortable win, per BBC.
Man United set unwanted record
According to The Mirror, United's humiliating loss against the Seagulls has seen them set an unwanted Premier League record.
The publication reports this is the first time United have lost three out of their opening five Premier League matches in the competition's history.
Speaking after the match, Red Devils boss Ten Hag admitted they were frustrated not to have picked maximum points in the tie.
"We are disappointed. But it was really small margins. We are so close against a good side. The first 20 minutes was all ours. We created chances but didn't score. We conceded a goal with their first attack," he said.
"We then had a period in the game that was quite difficult, we fought to get a goal and it was disallowed. So it is difficult in this period. It has not fallen on our side, but we will fight back and if we stick together, play as a team, stick to the rules, we will return," he added.
