However, the Dutch tactician and his side have been given a rude awakening to life in the English top-flight.
United stumbled to an opening day loss to Brighton at Old Trafford and look to get their season back on track with victory over Brentford but the 20-time Premier League champions would receive the shock of their lives.

A quickfire goal-fest in 35 first-half minutes saw Brentford cruise past United. Goals from DaSilva, Jensen, Ben Mee and Bryan Mbuemo handed United an embarrassing four-nil smashing before halftime.
Despite a raft of changes effected by Ten Hag at halftime, United failed to score a consolation or stage a comeback which has been synonymous with the club during the tenure of Sir Alex Ferguson.
After the game, football fans took to social media to poke fun at United's miseries.
@StarrBengarzi aimed a thinly-veiled dig at United:
"Hello, Manchester United."
@ntlokom took aim at United's new boss Erik Ten Hag:
"My son says Erik ten Hag is the best coach in the world and Manchester United should hold onto him for years to come!!"
Another social media user @SamuelloGh suggested the club should be dissolved:
"Dissolve Manchester United now."
@DaveOCKOP sarcastically tweeted:
"Clean sheet for Manchester United in the second half. A lot of positives to take from today."
"They also managed to blink and breathe at the same time. Outstanding performance from UTD! I've seen jellyfish with more backbone than that team."
