ERIK TEN HAG promised ‘a new season and a new story’ in his program notes.

Unfortunately, it was the same old story as Manchester United served up another shocker at Old Trafford to go with the many they produced last season.
The first 45 minutes were probably worse than any under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as his reign unraveled or Ralf Rangnick.

Behind to a pair of Pascal Gross goals at the break, boos rang around the ground.

The idea to start Christian Eriksen and Bruno Fernandes as interchanging false nines did not work.

Indeed only when Cristiano Ronaldo came on in the second-half did they look to have any semblance of a threat.
