Erik Ten Hag Sets Unwanted Record in Man United's Defeat to Crystal Palace
- Manchester United succumbed to a 1-0 defeat to Crystal Palace at Old Trafford
- An underwhelming performance saw the Red Devils criticized by fans at the stadium on social media
- The latest defeat means United have hit a new low that has never been seen in the club’s history
Manchester United hit a new low with a defeat to Crystal Palace on Saturday, as Erik ten Hag set an unwanted record after seven games.
Coming up against opponents who they easily brushed aside a few days earlier, expectations were high for United to come out with all three points at Old Trafford.
Palace rested some key players for the Carabao Cup tie on Tuesday, but days later, Roy Hodgson started a fairly strong squad, and it paid off.
The Eagles found what proved to be the only goal of the game through Joachim Andersen, who came up with a superb strike in the 25th minute after a free kick.
United then piled pressure, with Palace goalkeeper Sam Johnstone in superb form to keep out unrelenting attacks from the home side, as per BBC.
In the end , Erik Ten Hag’s side could neither find an winner nor an equalizer, as another defeat dropped them to 10th on the log, a place below Palace.
Ten Hag sets unwanted record
Long before the full-time whistle, there was an obvious sense of frustration from United fans at Old Trafford.
The 1-0 defeat at home only compounded on the misery of United faithful, whose hopes of a title surge quickly fade away.
For Ten Hag, it was another landmark for the gaffer, which he will not welcome as, according to @Utddistrict, the defeat to the Eagles means United have lost four of their opening seven league games, something that has never happened in the club’s history.
It doesn’t get any easier for the Red Devils as they play Galatasaray in the Champions League on Tuesday, October 3, before a tricky home game against Brentford four days later.
