Erik ten Hag, Manchester United got off to a loss!


Erik ten Hag’s tenure as Manchester United boss got off to a losing start as Brighton held off a late onslaught to earn their first victory at Old Trafford.

The home crowd,

which was eager to see their club put a disastrous end to last season behind them,

was surprised by Pascal Gross’ two goals in the first half.


Premier League Opener – Man Utd v Brighton

Graham Potter’s team completely outplayed United in that first half

as they defeated them 4-0 at the Amex Stadium in May on their way to their highest-ever ninth-place Premier League finish.

“I believe we got off to a strong start,

but after [the first goal] we lost confidence,

dropped a level, and made mistakes that the opposition took advantage of.


they have a strong working relationship, and when you make mistakes against such teams,

you pay for it. I believe they are a good opponent.

Before the game began,

there was a feeling of excitement surrounding United because the sun was shining and a new manager had been hired.

Ten Hag has begun to impose his personality on the team to the point where he kicked several members of the

“prawn-sandwich brigade” out of their corporate hospitality suites so that his players may eat before the game.


But so many of the earlier problems persisted. Before the game,

there were demonstrations against the United owners, thus the club shop had to be closed.

Avie Glazer, co-chairman,

was at the club for a rare visit and would have heard the chants to his left urging him to get his family out of the club.

Despite good debuts from Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez,

there was no coordination on the field.


who was agile and well-drilled,

profited. Within 15 seconds of the game’s beginning, Leandro Trossard volleyed into the side-netting,

and until it was far too late, United failed to exert any kind of dominance.


Welbeck’s run separated Maguire and Martinez in the opening frame. When the latter crossed across from the left to cover the cross,

a wide opening was created in the six-yard box,

and Gross was left on his own to tap in at the far post as United’s defence rushed to close the holes.

When Solly March cut inside and fired a low shot that goalkeeper David de Gea

deflected in his direction, he was in a position similar to that but on the opposite post.

he lost Yves Bissouma and Marc Cucurella for a total of £88 million. Dan Ashworth, the director of football,

has also left. In this game, none of Brighton’s newcomers made an appearance.



they moved the ball with a purpose that United lacked, and Welbeck posed a particular threat to his former team.

Gross and Trossard both played outstandingly,

and even without Bissouma,

Brighton controlled the midfield to prevent United from turning their effort into something more concrete.

Manchester United fell to Brighton in their opening Premier League game of the season,

and there were brawls between fans in the stands.

United fans had high hopes for the beginning of a new era under Erik ten Hag,

but they lost at home for the first time ever against the Seagulls, who won rightfully at Old Trafford with a 2-1 triumph.

In one image, a man appears to have his hand around another spectator’s throat.

Then, spectators from the section below became involved as some people tried to defuse the situation while others just gawked in fear.
In order to acquire two attackers before the transfer window ends,

Manchester United is prepared to take action. According to Goal,

the Premier League club is interested in Bologna’s Marko Arnautovic,

while Benjamin Sesko,

a talented young player for Red Bull Salzburg, is also being courted for a high-profile transfer.


Arnautovic is thought of as a low-cost option who can bolster their offence with experience and adaptability. The 33-year-old is eager to transfer to Old Trafford and would cost approximately £8 million.


Graham Potter’s conclusion

Great performance; the boys made me happy;

and it was a good start for us. Losing Bissouma and Cucurella is difficult,

but our team is strong and ambitious. Guys strive to be the greatest. Despite their imperfections, they do their best.

“We’re relishing this historic victory for us. Although we executed it well,

we only earned three points.

Manchester United defeats Brighton,

1-2, at the finish.
Peep, peep For the first time in their history,

Brighton has triumphed at Old Trafford! It’s a well-earned victory over a disorganised,

desperation-stricken United team that made Erik ten Hag aware of the magnitude of the challenge at hand.

Pascal Gross continued his great record against United by scoring both goals in the first half. However,

Danny Welbeck and Moises Caicedo stood out among Brighton’s outfield players,

who were all very good.

90+1 min Malacia reacts to Lamptey’s slip with an irrational and meaningless foul.
Erik ten Hag’s first Premier League

appearance was ruined by Pascal Gross’ first-half brace,

At Old Trafford,

which helped Brighton defeat Manchester United 2-1 and earn a well-deserved victory.

Ten Hag left Cristiano Ronaldo on the bench, and his men were left helpless by Gross’ close-range prowess as the German midfielder increased his United career total to six goals.

Alexis MacAllister’s clumsy own goal cut the deficit in half,

but even with Ronaldo coming on as a second-half substitute, United’s characteristic late comeback on their home turf failed to materialise.


United is in dire need of additional reinforcements. As Brighton turned the game in their favour early on, Fred,

who was the deeper of the two,


was careless with the ball in front of the back four, and McTominay’s ability

to annoy the opposition was diminished by a yellow card for a challenge on the excellent Moises Caicedo that easily could have been a red. Despite how fantastic Brighton’s second

goal was, such a play does not just meander through a midfield with good structural support. It is the area of weakness United must address in the final three weeks of the transfer window.

At the Theatre of Dreams,

a sizable crowd is anticipated as the Red Devils take on the Seagulls to start off the first Super Sunday of the new season.

Given that Ten Hag was only able to make three additions this summer,

United’s roster hasn’t nearly undergone the transformation that some fans had anticipated.

Prior to the opening-day match,

Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen,

and Lisandro Martinez have all arrived at United.

Prior to the game, Ten Hag provided some team information,

including the confirmation that Anthony Martial would not be playing.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s

lack of preseason playing time owing to personal concerns that kept him away

from the first team squad has caused him to be less physically prepared than other United team members.

Since Brighton doesn’t have any serious injuries,

their entire roster is anticipated to be available for the match.

Prior to the game,

United supporters are frequently arguing the starting lineup,

with many wanting to see recent additions Malacia, Eriksen,

and Martinez start right away.
