Man United’s humiliating 4-0 loss to Palace on Monday increased the pressure on Erik ten Hag.

Tyrick Mitchell, Jean-Philippe Mateta, and Michael Olise (twice) all scored for Palace as they defeated the Red Devils to win the league for the first time ever.

Ten Hag’s team now sits in seventh place with just 54 points after the loss in the capital.

Man United also established a new unwelcome record in the crushing defeat. They have dropped 13 games in a single Premier League season for the first time ever.

The club has suffered defeats against teams like Manchester City, Arsenal, Tottenham, Newcastle United, and Brighton in a startling 13 of their 35 league games this season.

Before the season ends, the Old Trafford team will play in the league against Brighton, Newcastle, and Arsenal.

Man United has lost an astounding 18 games this season across all competitions, which is their most in a season since 1977–1978.

Furthermore, Man United has given up 81 goals in all competitions, which is the most in the team’s history since 1976–1977.

Since April, they have only triumphed once in a league match, defeating Sheffield United 4-2. Ten Hag stated following the game, “It’s clear, we underperformed.

“We should’ve kept fighting like the fans did.”

The Dutch boss added: “There are reasons, everyone has seen our backline… but we have to deal with it.

“We have nine points to play for… I will keep fighting,” he concluded.

Man United takes on league leaders Arsenal on Sunday as they try to turn around their struggling league campaign.
