Manchester United coach Erik ten Hag’s introduction to the Premier League got off to a nightmare start on Sunday as the Red Devils lost 2-1 to Brighton.
Manchester United was totally outplayed in that opening period by Graham Potter’s side, who beat them 4-0 at the Amex Stadium in May.
 
The red devils could not convert any chances, giving Brighton their first-ever win at Old Trafford.
United increased its pressure in the second half. Cristiano Ronaldo, who had come off the bench, set up Marcus Rashford, but he failed to convert both opportunities.
The 37-year-old had a negligible impact on helping Manchester United. Another from Portugal, Diogo Dalot, created the confusion that led to a Manchester United goal. As the game progressed, Brighton appeared more likely to score.
