Erik ten Hag is starting to come under pressure at Manchester United and 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 beginning of the 2023-24 season has been a troubled one at Old Trafford. There have been many off-field distractions and United have lost three of their opening five Premier League matches for the first time.

An unbalanced squad has been decimated by injuries and Ten Hag is starting to be questioned for the first time since taking charge. The murmurings are quiet for now, but United need to improve quickly.
