Manchester United cut a sorry figure in another Premier League loss
On the back of a commendable 0-0 draw against Liverpool, the hopes were high for United. But some dull football from Ten Hag's men means they are now without a goal scoring for a staggering 418 minutes in the last four matches. The likes of Rasmus Hojlund, Antony and Alejandro Garnacho struggled in the final third and the Dutch manager seems to have a tough task at his disposal.
Erik ten Hag praised Manchester United following West Ham United defeat
Despite the loss, the former Ajax manager praised his team for being dominant at the London Stadium against the Hammers. During a post match interview with beIN sports he said, "I think we controlled the game, and we gave West Ham United nothing.
"We were so dominant in the build-up, and we created chances also in the transition. I think the first three chances of the game were ours; we have to take them."
Jarrod Bowen opened the scoring for the home side at the stroke of 72 minutes and Mohammed Kudus double the lead just six minutes which later proved to be the winner for the Londoners. United will now face Aston Villa in their next game in the top flight.
