Richard Keys blasts Erik ten Hag for pointing fingers at Man United players following 3-1 loss to Brighton

Manchester United suffered their third Premier League defeat of the season against Brighton & Hove Albion at Old Trafford on Saturday, and manager Erik ten Hag blamed the players.

The Dutchman insisted after the game that his players strayed from the game plan, and his claim left Richard Keys fuming.

The visitors were 3-0 up before Man United netted a consolation goal, and it could have ended 4-1 had Andre Onana not made a great save when left one-on-one with Ansu Fati.

Ten Hag was far from pleased with his players after the game, taking aim at them for not sticking to their new game plan.

Keys was unimpressed, taking to X to slam the Red Devils boss.

Man United were poor against the Seagulls, and while the players did not cover themselves in glory, the manager should be blamed for failing to get the better of his opposite number.

Brighton boss Roberto De Zerbi outwitted Ten Hag and the Dutchman has to do better with the crop of players at his disposal.

The Red Devils cannot win major silverware playing like this, and things have to change if they want to finish in the top four again this term as they currently do not look like challengers for the Champions League places.

Man United are far from being regarded as title challengers, and Ten Hag needs to quickly find a solution to this problem.

They return to action on Wednesday when they travel to face Bayern Munich in their opening group game of the Champions League campaign before visiting Turf Moor to face struggling Burnley on Saturday.

It is still early days, but Ten Hag could soon find himself under pressure if nothing changes, and the onus is on him to deliver the goods as Man United look forward to the glory days once again.
