Man United stung by Bees



Man United stung by Bees

Man United stung by Bees is certainly a worthy headline for the 4-0 trashing of the Red Devils side today at the hands of Brentford.

Well, what can we say? It is the Premier League with yet another weekend to break all hearts especially those of the United faithful who would have to look away as their team fell to a humiliating defeat twice in a row in the opening weeks of the league.

Erik ten Hag, the new Manchester United manager, stood there at the Brentford turf, stung and shocked at the sight he came at.

He too could not fathom what he had walked into the minute his opponents raced into a 4-0 lead before halftime with goals coming in quick succession from the Bees.

The fixture literally sent our match week 2 predictions blown to bits considering the Old Trafford side going into the fixture was mostly considered as favorites to come out with all 3 points while coming off the opening week defeat to Brighton.

But for some reason, Brentford showed to the world that Man United’s problems were only at its inception rather than the 2-1 opening week loss a fluke game.

Man United stung by bees who came in prepared and with a lot of confidence to strike 4 times past David de Gea in the first half before returning for the second half looking to have fun by letting the Red Devils hold possession while they defended.

The score line could have been more. Brentford struck 7 shots on target against Manchester United’s 4, with David de Gea only able to save 3 of the 7 shots that came at him.

Josh Dasilva, Mathias Jensen, Ben Mee and Bryan Mbeumo chose to be the terror at the heart of the Man United defence, seeing their 4 shots become goals in the game.

They left the likes of Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford, Scott McTominay and Harry Maguire helpless with no choice but to get booked with yellow cards each to show the game wasn’t just a game but a war they were forcibly dragged into without their knowledge.

The Premier League week 2 came with Man United being stung by Bees in the home of Brentford.

At full time, Cristiano Ronaldo was seen walking past the manager, snubbing the Dutchman.
