[Video Goals] Midtjylland 2-1 Man Utd: Pressure Grows On LvG After Pitiful Defeat
The pressure on Louis van Gaal’s shoulders intensified tonight after Manchester United slumped to an embarrassing 2-1 defeat to Danish minnow FC Midtjylland.
The pressure on Louis van Gaal’s shoulders intensified tonight after Manchester United slumped to an embarrassing 2-1 defeat to Danish minnows FC Midtjylland.
The hosts showed no signs of being rusty despite this being their first competitive game in two months and they gave as good as they got in the opening exchanges.
United then looked to have taken control of the tie as Dutch international Memphis Depay turned the ball home in the 37th minute following a cross from Jesse Lingard.
However, Midtjylland drew level on the stroke of half-time as Sisto fired past Sergio Romero – standing in for the injured David De Gea – from the edge of the box in the 44th minute.
Romero then pulled off an excellent save to keep the score at 1-1 but it wasn’t long before the Danish side took the lead as Onuachu fired home from 20 yards into the bottom corner to make it 2-1.
United couldn’t find the equaliser so they slumped to a disappointing loss and although they’ll be confident of turning things around at Old Trafford next week, fans are now demanding van Gaal’s exit after another pitiful display.
