Manchester United witnessed one more Defeat in the latest season, As they witnessed an embarrassing loss against Newcastle by 3-0. The defeat has added a lot of pressure on Manchester United’s manager Erin Ten Hag as the world-renowned club faced one more setback and failed for the 8th time to Regain form and success in the Premier League.
Paul Merson recently had a chat with the prestigious British Sports TV channel Sky Sports to talk about Erin Hag’s repeated failure as the team manager for Manchester United. He believes the team went out of ideas and strategies to bring themselves back in the game which resulted in Newcastle scoring 3 goals against them.
“It was shocking. It was poor. They were out of ideas again. It’s constantly been said over several years with Man Utd. You don’t see an identity and you don’t see what they’re trying to do. When you watch other teams, you can see what they’re trying to do but they got dominated in midfield by Joe Willock, Sean Longstaff and Joelinton. Newcastle made eight changes and United have been beaten 3-0. I personally think the manager has lost the players”, Paul Merson told Sky Sports.
Paul Merson on Newcastle’s win against Manchester United
“There’s ways of losing football matches, and everyone loses matches, but they were completely beaten tonight after going 1-0 down as they were last week [against Manchester City]”, he said.
“It was just too easy for Newcastle. Tonight, they should’ve been rabbits in headlights going to Old Trafford but they just went out and played. The face I see every week is Ten Hag chewing gum, stone-faced. It’s all I see and something has got to be done”, added Merson.
“It’s now a big game on Saturday away to Fulham. I don’t see how much further this goes on. I know I read in the papers it could cost £15m. I know they may say that’s a lot but they’ve just let £80m go to waste in not playing Jadon Sancho. They chased this kid for I don’t know how long, he says one thing, and now he’s completely out. He’ll probably go out on loan in January and they’ll be paying half his wages,” Merson said.
“Everybody loses football matches but there are ways of losing and tonight, like last week, they were just completely beaten. It is not good at all. Everything was too easy for Newcastle,” he concluded.
