Erik ten Hag suffered another setback against Manchester United in the Premier League on Saturday. Three days after the precious Champions League draw against Galatasaray, the Dutch coach lost with his team at Newcastle United: 1-0.
The defeat for Manchester United was deserved. The English record champion was hardly involved in St. James Park and shot only once on goal in ninety minutes.
The only goal of the match came in the 56th minute through Anthony Gordon. The attacker simply tapped in at the second post. United goalkeeper André Onana, who made two mistakes against Galatasaray, had no chance this time. Even in the closing stages, United could not create a chance.
Ten Hag will therefore be under pressure again in Manchester within a week. United had won two in a row in the Premier League when they took a 3-1 lead against Galatasaray on Wednesday. This makes wintering in the Champions League seem like a utopia for the Dutchman.
The loss in Newcastle drops Manchester United to seventh place in the Premier League. Newcastle United has just surpassed Manchester United and currently occupies fifth place in the rankings.
At Newcastle United the injured Sven Botman was still missing, while at Manchester United Donny van de Beek remained on the bench for ninety minutes. Sofyan Amrabat came on for the visitors ten minutes before the end.
