Erik ten Hag Tipped To Be First Manager Sacked After Brentford Thrashed Manchester United

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has seen the odds slashed on him to be sacked as Brentford scored four first-half goals on Saturday.

An abysmal performance saw the Bees take lead after only 10 minutes thanks to a howler from David de Gea, who let the ball slip through his palms.

De Gea was at fault again nine minutes later, selling Christian Eriksen short with a pass and allowing Mathias Jensen to nip in and double the lead.

Brentford were 3-0 up within half an hour when Ben Mee bundled the ball home at the far post from a corner, easily beating centre-back Lisandro Martinez in the air despite losing his balance in the process.

It was 4-0 five minutes later when Ivan Toney teed up Bryan Mbeumo to finish past De Gea, to confirm United’s worst-ever half-time scoreline and facing a record away Premier League defeat.

Heading into the season, Ten Hag was 33/1 to be the first manager sacked but after losing to Brighton last week and seeing a first-half thumping drop United to the bottom of the table, he is now 13/2 to get the boot.
