Erik ten Hag sent Manchester United warning as Jose Mourinho point made

United have had a difficult start to the campaign and sit 13th in the Premier League table after three defeats from their opening five matches. Their latest loss came on Saturday at the hands of Brighton and Hove Albion who dished out a 3-1 defeat at Old Trafford.

After starting positively, the Reds crumbled and there were jeers from the home supporters when Ten Hag chose to substitute Rasmus Hojlund for Anthony Martial. In his latest column for the Daily Mail, Chris Sutton claims that Ten Hag needs to turn the tide in his next Premier League game at Burnley.

He wrote: “Manchester United are not in such a big crisis as when Jose Mourinho was playing the blame game. He cut an isolated figure towards the end, with his mad, egotistical ramblings. But Erik ten Hag needs to solve this situation fast because the scrutiny on him is increasing with every sub-standard showing.

“When Mourinho was chucking everybody under the bus, he had lost the dressing room. It is not at that stage yet for Ten Hag.

“Bayern Munich on Wednesday will be tricky but United need to show a better version of themselves when they visit Burnley in the league on Saturday.”

The midweek trip to Germany will be the Reds&apos first outing in the Champions League this season but after defeat to the Seagulls, United fans will likely be travelling in hope rather than expectation.
