Match preview: Manchester United vs Liverpool
Erik Ten Hag’s Manchester United career is off to the worst possible start.
His side have lost their opening two matches against Brighton and Brentford.
The Seagulls won at Old Trafford on the opening day as ran riot in the first-half in Manchester.
Then, the Red Devils were completely humiliated in west London last weekend, losing 4-0 to Brentford.
Now, the pressure is already starting to mount on the Dutch manager, although there is an acceptance from the fans that bigger issues need addressing first.
The relationship between the supporters and the club’s owners is at an all-time low - which is saying something.
The hierarchy are trying to make amends by signing Casemiro and either Antony or Cody Gakpo, but the lack of planning remains clear.
Meanwhile, it’s also been a tricky start to the season for Liverpool, who have drawn both of their opening two matches.
The Reds were held on the opening day to a frantic 2-2 draw with Fulham, before drawing at home to Crystal Palace.
Luis Díaz had to rescue a point for Jürgen Klopp’s men who feared the worst at 1-0 as new signing Darwin Núñez was shown a straight red.
Liverpool now have a fantastic opportunity to claim their first win as they head to Old Trafford to face a team whose confidence is on the floor.
