Manchester United won the League Cup in February, were still somewhat close to the top two even though a title challenge was always unlikely, were going strong in Europe and still in the FA Cup.
Around six weeks later, though, the wheels have fallen off at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils were humiliated in the Europa League by Sevilla on Thursday and their injury issues at the back give Brighton a great chance of beating them in the FA Cup this weekend.
In the league, meanwhile, Manchester United are 11 points off second and their top-four spot is now under threat after they appeared to have that secured a month or so ago.
Following this drop off, it has been reported by The Guardian that Erik ten Hag will oversee a summer clear out of senior Manchester United players, with Jadon Sancho, Anthony Martial, Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof, Scott McTominay and Fred heading a list of at least 15 whose futures are under threat.
Ten Hag is looking to sell all of those players in order to generate finance to reinvest in the squad and enhance its baseline standard.
Other players Ten Hag is considering allowing to leave include Donny van de Beek, Anthony Elanga, Dean Henderson and Brandon Williams
