Manchester United suffered a second-straight Champions League defeat on Tuesday evening, taking their total to six losses in all competitions already this term.
Manchester United went 1-0 up in the tie but eventually fell to a Galatasaray side who had struggled to make it into the group stage. This poor run of form has seen Erik ten Hag’s odds slashed in the next Premier League manager to be sacked race. He was 12/1 earlier this week but can now be backed at 9/2 with Betfair.
Big summer signing Rasmus Hojlund put Manchester United in front vs Galatasaray after 17 minutes but a former Red Devil, Wilfried Zaha, equalised for the away outfit six minutes later.
Hojlund was again on hand to fire United in front shortly after the hour mark but Galatasaray hit back with 19 minutes of normal time to play. Casemiro was then shown a second yellow card before Mauro Icardi smashed home the winner in the 81st minute.
Following Tuesday’s clash, it has been revealed that Manchester United have lost seven of their last 14 Champions League matches at Old Trafford (W5 D2), which is as many defeats as they suffered across their previous 96 games there (W67 D22).
Manchester United are next in action vs Brentford on October 7 and another defeat then could spell major trouble for Ten Hag.
