Manchester United’s tumultuous journey took another twist in a riveting encounter, a performance marked by moments of brilliance and utter dismay. A disastrous evening at Old Trafford witnessed Erik ten Hag’s squad surrender their lead twice, culminating in a 3-2 loss to Galatasaray. This leaves them bereft of points from their opening two matches in the Champions League, staring down the barrel of a group-stage departure.

Rasmus Hojlund was the shining star of the night, delivering a performance reminiscent of Manchester legends. His two-goal spectacle, one evoking flashes of Ruud van Nistelrooy, was a beacon amid the gloom. However, the evening was marred by Andre Onana’s performance. The Cameroonian’s challenging transition to Manchester hit a new low, leaving the Red Devils’ faithful longing for the days of David de Gea. The epitome of his lacklustre showing was an ill-judged pass to Dries Mertens. The subsequent events saw Casemiro being penalised, earning a red card, which rules him out of the crucial upcoming clash with Copenhagen. While Mauro Icardi failed to convert the penalty, he later clinched the winner for Galatasaray in a game that was nothing short of a rollercoaster.

Manager’s Review:

Erik ten Hag: 5/10 – Steered through an unpredictable match. Although his tactical adjustments were logical, the bulk of the errors were individual. Nevertheless, the responsibility of the team’s current form rests on his shoulders. The absence of a cohesive game plan was glaringly evident yet again.
