Brilliant Brentford Humiliate Man Utd With 4-0 Demolition

Manchester United were sent rock bottom of the Premier League as Brentford's four first-half goals handed Erik ten Hag another embarrassing defeat.

WHAT HAPPENED? David de Gea's shocking attempt to keep out Josh Dasilva's effort was followed up by a trio of goals from Mathias Jensen, Ben Mee and Bryan Mbeumo inside 35 minutes at the Community Stadium. The home side were then able to coast to a famous victory in the second half as they were very rarely troubled by the visitors. You can read the social media reactions to the result here.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: The embarrassing result leaves the Red Devils at an early-season crossroads. They have been outplayed and humiliated in both of their first two games of the season by underdog opposition in Brighton and Brentford.

ALL EYES ON: Ronaldo could scarcely believe what he was watching. Having been restored to the starting XI, the 37-year-old was left looking on in pure shock as his defensive teammates continued to be sliced open by the Brentford forwards in a staggering first half.
