Manchester United’s 3-0 home defeat to arch-rivals Manchester City has raised a lot of question marks for their manager, Erik Ten Hag. Apparently, the manager was furious with his players and their lackluster performance. It left the team in the eighth position in the Premier League table. After that, he made his players sit and hear the Manchester City celebrations, which were happening on the opposite side of the tunnel after they returned to their changing room at Old Trafford.

The Dutch manager wanted his MUFC players to listen to the away supporters, who were applauding their heroes after battering the United side. United failed to create enough chances in the game and were lucky that the game remained 3-0. Andre Onana made several crucial saves to deny the City from extending the lead.

Manchester United’s inconsistent form this season

Manchester United has been in poor form this season. The 13-time Premier League winners are 8th in the league, eleven points adrift of league leaders, Spurs. They managed to get their first win in the Champions League at home to Copenhagen after losing against Bayern Munich and Galatasaray. The lack of attacking firepower has caused a lot of trouble for the Red Devils. Marcus Rashford, who scored 17 goals in the league last season, has only scored one goal in ten league games. United has only scored eleven goals in ten matches.
