Cristiano Ronaldo leaves the pitch frustrated as Manchester United lost their first Premier League game against Brighton. Pascal Groß’s brace secured all three points at Old Trafford stadium. Ronaldo looks frustrated after United conceded the first goal in the 30th minute. The game ended with a 1-2 home defeat for United.
The 37-year-old forward started the game on the bench after having a discussion with Erik Ten Hag regarding leaving early in a friendly game against Rayo Vallecano. Pascal Groß’s first goal makes Ronaldo frustrated and started warming up before halftime. United was 2-0 in the 39th minute of the game.
5 times Ballon d’Or winner came on as a substitute in the 53rd minute of the game. After the arrival of Ronaldo, the game changed and started pressing. Alexis Mac Allister’s own goal gives United hope but was not sufficient to secure a point.
Erik Ten Hag’s new era for Manchester United has started but with the same worst season as last year. Will United can back to winning form and compete for the title?
