Erik ten Hag during Manchester United's humbling 3-0 defeat to Bournemouth at Old Trafford.

The Premier League table since Man Utd appointed Erik ten Hag

Erik ten Hag has been under heavy pressure at Manchester United this season, but the Premier League table since he took charge of his first match in the competition back in August 2022 makes for interesting reading.

Ten Hag took over after the conclusion of the 2021-22 season, where United had finished sixth with their lowest points tally of the Premier League era. The mood at Old Trafford was despondent.

Despite losing his first two matches, the former Ajax boss would enjoy a successful first campaign in England. Helped by the goals of Marcus Rashford, the drive of Casemiro and the saves of David de Gea, United finished third and qualified for the Champions League after a year’s absence.

But the 2023-24 season has been a different story. There have been many off-field distractions and United have lost 14 games in all competition, the latest being a 2-1 reverse at Nottingham Forest.

An unbalanced squad has been decimated by injuries and Ten Hag is facing serious questions about his future.

We’ve taken a step back from the noise surrounding the club to compile the Premier League table since the Dutchman’s first match since being appointed United boss.
