Man Utd record worst start in 29 years

| |

Manchester United recorded their worst league start in 29 years as Jose Mourinho’s side were beaten 3-1 by West Ham at London Stadium.

Felipe Anderson and Marko Arnautovic scored either side of a Victor Lindelof own goal with Marcus Rashford scoring the only goal for Man Utd.

The result caps a difficult seven days for the Red Devils who drew at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers last Saturday and were dumped out of the EFL Cup in midweek.

West Ham’s front three each played a role in one of the goals as Manuel Pellegrini’s side stretched their unbeaten run to four with their biggest win over United in 36 years.

With just 10 points in their opening seven games, this is United’s worst start to a league season since the 1989-90 campaign during which Sir Alex Ferguson was on the verge of getting the sack until Mark Robins’ winner against Nottingham Forest eased the pressure on the Scot.
