At the Gtech Community Stadium, Brentford humiliated Manchester United with a stunning first-half performance in which they scored four goals in the first thirty-five minutes of play. This resulted in a loss for Manchester United.
The home team took the lead thanks to Josh Dasilva, whose shot from a long range was somehow saved by David de Gea, the goalkeeper for United.
Ben Mee and Bryan Mbeumo goals put Thomas Frank’s side four up during an incredible first half in which they dismantled United in stunning fashion. Mathias Jensen doubled the lead after dispossessing former Brentford player Christian Eriksen, and Mathias Jensen scored after dispossessing former Brentford player Christian Eriksen.
The loss is United’s seventh in a row away from home, which is their worst road losing streak since 1936. Additionally, it is the seventh time since the beginning of last season that they have allowed at least four goals to be scored against them in a league game.
While Brentford can rejoice in their historic victory, United manager Erik ten Hag has the unenviable task of getting his team ready for Liverpool’s visit to Old Trafford on Monday, August 22.
Things are getting even worse for Man Utd .
United wanted to get off to a fast start after suffering a well-deserved loss to Brighton the previous week. However, it was Brentford who found early success as the defence of the visitors’ team crumbled spectacularly in response to the high pressure that was applied by their hosts.
De Gea, who for such a long time has been one of United’s most consistent performers, was left red-faced when he allowed Dasilva’s speculative shot from distance to slip underneath him and into the net, with Cristiano Ronaldo claiming he was fouled in the build-up to the goal. De Gea has been one of United’s most consistent performers for so long.
Mathias Jensen had an opportunity to score from the ensuing free kick, but he missed the target. Despite this, the Danish midfielder was able to celebrate two minutes later after another mistake by United. Harry Maguire was given a yellow card for his careless challenge on Dasilva.

The pass that De Gea made to Eriksen on the edge of the United penalty area was intercepted by Jensen, who then scored a goal for Brentford by slotting the ball into the back of the net from close range.
It was another severe test of United’s character, but things only got worse when Brentford scored twice in the span of five minutes to move four points ahead of United. Last week, United trailed Brighton by two goals after falling behind by those same two goals.

Mee scored with a header at the far post to make it 3-0, and then Mbeumo finished off a quick counterattack by controlling Ivan Toney’s pass and then curling the ball past a helpless De Gea to put the Bees up 4-0 after a barely believable 35 minutes of play. Mee’s goal made it 4-0 for the Bees after 35 minutes.
Although there is still time for the Dutchman to turn their fortunes around, the first two games of the season have highlighted the daunting task facing the former Ajax boss at Old Trafford. While there is still time for the Dutchman to turn their fortunes around, the first two games of the season have underlined the difficulty of the task.
Bringing a breath of fresh air is Brentford.
Although much of the post-match discussion will centre on United’s issues, credit is due to Brentford for the way they approached the game and the way they carried it out, just as it was due to Brighton the previous week.
They tormented United from the moment the referee blew his whistle, refusing to give the away team any time on the ball, and most importantly, they capitalised on their opportunities to leave their rivals in the dust.
Jensen stole the ball from Ronaldo inside United’s half of the field and passed it on to Dasilva, who scored the game’s first goal. Dasilva took a low shot that was directed towards the goal, but it was just out of De Gea’s reach. Martinez was replaced at the break because he was taking too long to close off the space.

That served as a precedent for the rest of the first half, during which Brentford ran wild. Before Toney used his height advantage to beat Martinez in the air and set up Mee for the goal that marked Mee’s home debut, the impressive Jensen foresaw De Gea’s risky pass to Eriksen and punished both players for it. Mee scored the goal that marked his home debut.
Brentford vs Man Utd Performance
The difference between the teams was crystallised with the scoring of the fourth goal. Toney was the recipient of the long pass that the Brentford players attempted to make after Jadon Sancho was forced off the ball inside the Brentford box.
Toney slipped in Mbeumo, who shook off Luke Shaw and swept the ball home to set off delirious scenes among the home fans. This occurred because United was slow to react to the developing counter-attack, which led Toney to make the pass.
Ten Hag’s response was to put Raphael Varane, Scott McTominay, and Tyrell Malacia on the field during the halftime break. However, with his players seemingly in shock, United were unable to mount the miraculous comeback that was required to salvage something from the game, and Brentford cruised to a victory that will live long in the memory of their fans.
