Jamie Carragher compares Erik ten Hag’s woeful Manchester United record to Gary Neville’s Valencia spell following 2-0 loss to West Ham United

Manchester United suffered their 13th defeat across all competitions this term following a 2-0 defeat to West Ham United at the London Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The Red Devils are now eighth in the Premier League table after their eighth loss of the campaign, and Jamie Carragher could not help but mock their woeful record under manager Erik ten Hag.

Man United have an identical record this term under the Dutchman compared to the stats Valencia had under Gary Neville during his ill-fated spell as the manager of the La Liga club.

Valencia won ten games, lost 11 and recorded seven draws during Neville’s 28-game spell, scoring 39 goals and conceding 38.

Man United have played 26 games this season, winning 11 and drawing two.

They have scored 33 goals and shipped 41 goals, and it does not appear things will get better anytime soon given their injury woes, lack of hunger and style of play.

Soon-to-be co-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe is unlikely to be impressed with what he has been seeing from the Red Devils under Ten Hag, and the former Ajax manager could soon be on his way if the results do not improve.

Most of the current players are not good enough and have not been in inspired form, but the onus is always on the manager to get the desired results in any circumstances.

Major squad changes are needed next month and in the summer transfer window, but Ten Hag may not be around to oversee them given that he sanctioned the deal for most of the underwhelming players.
