Manchester United have slipped to the bottom of the Premier League table after suffering a 4-0 defeat at Brentford.
Brentford produced a stunning first-half performance as they smashed four goals past United in 35 first half minutes at Gtech Community Stadium.
Josh Dasilva put the hosts ahead when his strike from distance somehow squeezed past United goalkeeper, David de Gea.
Mathias Jensen doubled the lead after dispossessing former Brentford player, Christian Eriksen, with Ben Mee and Bryan Mbeumo goals putting Thomas Frank’s side four up during an incredible first half in which they dismantled United in stunning fashion.
The defeat is United’s seventh in a row on the road – their worst run since 1936 – while it is the seventh time they have conceded at least four goals in a league game since the start of last season.
While Brentford can bask in a historic win, United boss Erik ten Hag faces the unenviable task of lifting his players in time for the visit of Liverpool to Old Trafford on Monday, August 22.
