As Manchester United fell to Brighton in their opening Premier League game of the year, things went south on and off the field.

 

United fans had high hopes for the beginning of a new era under Erik ten Hag, but they suffered their first home loss against the Seagulls, who were justly victorious at Old Trafford.

 

In the first half, Brighton’s Pascal Gross scored twice to take a commanding lead. After the break, Alexis Mac Allister’s own goal cut the deficit in half, but Ten Hag’s team was unable to make a comeback.

As a result, the atmosphere in the stands became more tense, and a brawl looked to start in one section of the Old Trafford crowd.

Then, spectators from the section below became involved as some people tried to defuse the situation while others just gawked in fear.

Ten Hag asked spectators to play against Brighton as the 12th man before the game.

The Dutchman asserted, “If we bring dedication, I think they [the fans] will like it and they will bring the fight back.” “The stadium, in my opinion, is intended to bring conflict and cooperation.”

There seems to have been some Old Trafford spectators who took the call to action a little too seriously.

Prior to Sunday’s match between United and Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League, Red Devils supporters gathered on the way to Old Trafford. This was Erik ten Hag’s first Premier League game as the club’s new manager. Fans once more expressed their displeasure at the way the infamous Glazer family is still in charge of the program during the protest.

 

Manchester United’s managerial staff may be in a new era, but the club’s owners are still on the minds of the supporters.
