Brentford are currently destroying Man Utd 4-0, the club is at ROCK BOTTOM
Currently trailing Brentford 4-0, Manchester United’s mistake allowed the home team to take an early lead. David de Gea made the costly error.
Josh Dasilva’s second goal in as many games gave the Bees the lead after they had the better of the opening exchanges.
When Dasilva received the ball after Cristiano Ronaldo lost control, he made the decision to attempt a long-range shot.
De Gea somehow allowed it to squirm under his body and into the back of the net despite being at best a speculative effort.
Despite criticism for his poor ball skills, the Spain international is still regarded as one of the Premier League’s top shot blockers.
However, he hasn’t displayed it this evening, and followers reacted quickly on social media.
Someone remarked: “Every week, David de Gea makes £350,000. the world’s highest paid goalkeeper.”
The phrase “Has he got holes in his gloves” is another.
“United needed to make a call on this guy a long time ago,” another user tweeted.
He may now be the worst goalkeeper in the league, according to someone else, who also added: “A sad decline.”
Eight minutes later, Thomas Frank’s team doubled their advantage when Christian Eriksen and David de Gea made a mistake that allowed Mathias Jensen to score.
Eriksen spent the second half of the previous season with Brentford before joining United as a free agent in the summer.
When he touched the ball, some home supporters booed him and yelled, “Christian, what’s the score?” at different times during the half.
The physicality of Brentford from set pieces, which has received much attention, was instrumental in their third goal.
After a fierce struggle in the penalty area, summer signing Ben Mee from Burnley scored the team’s first goal at the halfway point.
In place of Scott McTominay, United made one change from Sunday’s 2-1 loss to Brighton. Ronaldo was substituted.
He had little effect, though, and United got caught again as they tried to close the deficit.
Jadon Sancho was taken out of the game by Jensen, who then passed the ball to Ivan Toney.
After fending off Luke Shaw, Brian Mbuemo finished a crafty counterattack to make it four inside of 35 minutes after being played in by Toney.
