After falling behind to Brighton at Old Trafford, Manchester United was mocked ruthlessly.

The Red Devils’ debut match under Erik ten Hag got off to a terrible start, with the guests controlling play.

To start the scoring, Pascal Gross pounced on a pass from former United player Danny Welbeck across the area.

The ecstatic visitors’ fans first erupted in celebration of the goal before launching into a tirade against Manchester United.

They began by shouting, “You’re going down the Palace.”

Brighton and Crystal Palace in South London are fierce rivals.

They sang “You’re getting sacked in the morning” to draw attention to their new boss Ten Hag.

When Gross extended Brighton’s advantage just before halftime, the sarcastic shouts started to sound more real than harsh.

Talk of Cristiano Ronaldo dominated the lead-up to the game.

Ten Hag made the decision to bench his fugitive superstar.

But after such a disastrous start at the Theatre of Dreams, he could have regretted making the call.

In the second half, he introduced Ronaldo, and Manchester United was able to respond with an own goal from Alexis Mac Allister.

However, they were unable to score an equaliser, giving them the worst conceivable start to the season.
