EPL: Why Man United Lost 4-0 To Brighton; Manchester United’s dismal season hit a new low as Brighton condemned them to a 4-0 defeat that ended their expedients of finishing in the Premier League’s top four on Saturday.
United have endured a host of demotions in one of their most disturbing seasons for decades and this lacklustre loss was among the veritably worst.
Ralf Rangnick’s side were routed by pretensions from Moises Caicedo, Marc Cucurella, Pascal Gross and Leandro Trossard at the Amex Stadium.
After 5-0 and 4-0 defeats against bow rivals Liverpool, a 4-1 loss at Watford that saw Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sacked in November and an FA Mug at home to Championship side Middlesbrough, it sounded insolvable for United to fall any farther.
But they were so pusillanimous and hopeless on the south- seacoast that indeed United’s travelling sympathizers turned on them. Sixth placed United are certain to miss out on the champions League for only the fifth time in 30 seasons.
With 58 points and only one game left, United’s fifth consecutive down master means they will finish with their smallest points total in the Premier League period.
It would be no surprise if Erik ten Hag, the Ajax master who has agree to take charge of United from coming season, was having alternate studies about his decision to accept the task of rebuilding a platoon sagging well behind the norms set by Liverpool and Manchester City.
The United football fans concentrated at one end of the Amex Stadium set the tone for another poisonous evening as they chanted for the club’s possessors the Glazer family to vend up and held up banners reading‘We want our club back.
Not for the first time this season, United’s players failed to lift the dusk. United rocked-Rangnick’s platoon were stunned in the 15th nanosecond when Ecuador midfielder Caicedo scored his first thing in English football.
Alex Telles made a hash of his clearing title and Gross’s shot was blocked to the 20- time-old Caicedo, who smashed a 25-yard rocket into the nethermost corner.
United had failed to muster a single shot on target in a terrible first half performance.
Fred and Edinson Cavani were transferred on to replace Anthony Elanga and Nemanja Matic at the break, but United were unfit to raise their game.
Just four twinkles into the second half, Cucurella cried gashes of joy after he joined Caicedo in scoring his first thing in English football.
United paid the price for awful defending as the Spanish protector was allowed to run onto a cutback and drive his shot into the roof of the net.
In disarray at the reverse, United were traduced again in the 57th nanosecond. Cucurella fed Trossard and he’d space to tee up Gross inside the area for a cool, flicked finish past David De Gea.
United had completely lost the plot and Brighton piled on the misery on the hour mark. It was a farcical thing that added up United’s decline.
Diogo Dalot tried to clear off the line from Danny Welbeck, but the ball hit Trossard and trickled into the net, with VAR awarding the thing after a check for handball.
The Furious United fans teased their players with chants of‘you ’re not fit to wear the shirt and‘we want Ten Hag’, to which Albion’s sympathizers responded by bellowing‘we want 10’in reference to their thing spree.
It could nearly have been that bad, but Alexis Mac Allister hit the post and Welbeck coiled wide as United surrendered without a fight.
