Manchester United lose against Brentford, 4-0.

Manchester United lost 4-0 to Brentford on Saturday, Cristiano Ronaldo's first 2022-23 appearance.

United's disastrous afternoon began when David de Gea let Josh Dasilva's weak, low shot past him.

Eight minutes later, United's sloppy defence saw their deficit double.

Mathias Jensen rushed Christian Eriksen out of control after a terrible pass by De Gea, and he dummied to score.

Ben Mee beat Lisandro Martinez to head in a corner after Ivan Toney's poor defending.

Five minutes later, Thomas Frank's team added a fourth goal to their flurry of goals.

Ivan Toney expertly counter-attacked and fed Brian Mbuemo, who beat De Gea.

De Gea stated, "It was a bad day. "I ought to have blocked the opening shot; the outcome may have been different.

"Other groups score one goal while winning 5-1. We must react much more effectively. A subpar performance was given."

United has never allowed four goals in a Premier League first half away from home before.

Ten Hag's team stopped conceding goals in the second half, but missed chances to regain pride.

Brentford's last win against United in all competitions was in the 1938 FA Cup.

Ten Hag is the only United manager in 100 years to lose his first two games.
