Brighton vs Manchester United - LIVE!

Manchester United must want this season to end now.

Make that five straight away losses for United in the English Premier League after a chastening 4-0 thrashing by Brighton on Saturday.

With just one game left this season — at Crystal Palace in two weeks — United has little to play for in a fifth straight season without a trophy.

If Erik ten Hag needed a reminder of the mess he is inheriting when the current Ajax coach takes over at Old Trafford in the offseason, it was this embarrassing performance at Amex Stadium.

Moises Caicedo and Marc Cucurella scored their first goals in English soccer — Cucurella was reduced to tears after slamming home his shot in the 49th — before strikes by Pascal Gross and Leandro Trossard by the hour mark.

In United’s previous four away games in the league, it lost at Arsenal 3-1, at Liverpool 4-0, at Everton 1-0 and at Manchester City 4-1.

United is in sixth place, five points behind fourth-placed Arsenal, and cannot finish in the Champions League qualification spots.

Ralf Rangnick to Sky Sports

19:50 , Jonathan Gorrie

“It was a terrible performance. From the first until the last minute it was not enough; we can only apologise for this performance and a humiliating defeat. [Monday’s win over Brentford] was a different game, we just gave too much time and space. We were never in a position where we could stop them playing through our lines, We told the players be as compact as they could but we couldn’t stop it.

“I don’t think they ignored the gameplan but we weren’t able to stop them. We gave them too much space and if you do that against a technically good team like Brighton, you will get punished.”

Lewis Dunk to Sky Sports

19:41 , Jonathan Gorrie

“It is a special day. [Man Utd] are a top side and we’ve let our home fans down this season, so it was a nice moment. Away from home, our form has been excellent, home form not so good. It has held us back in the league. They’ve had to watch some not so good performances but you can hear they enjoyed that one.

“We waited for it to come together; there were a few moments when I was still shouting. I’m happy, but never too happy. We’ll have a nice evening.”

Ralf Rangnick on team selection

16:47 , Jonathan Gorrie

“No reason to change anything, I know Harry [Maguire] would have wanted to play but we had other games where Harry played and Raphaël [Varane] or Victor [Lindelöf] didn’t. This is part of the game, we have a couple of good central defenders.”

Ralf Rangnick: Man United need to sign two more strikers

16:27 , Jonathan Gorrie

Ralf Rangnick wants Manchester United to sign more versatile strikers to rebuild their frontline.

Cristiano Ronaldo has led the line this season with middling displays from the likes of Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Edinson Cavani around him.

Rangnick will take up his consultancy role in the summer with the aim of signing at least two “modern” strikers who can play out wide or as a false nine.

“It’s obvious the club needs at least two new strikers who give this team more quality and more options,” Rangnick said. “I wouldn’t even call it wingers.

“Two strikers and modern strikers, that do not necessarily have to be wingers. If you look into international football, there aren’t many top teams who still play with two strikers. Most play with either three strikers or a false nine.”

Erik Ten Hag: Manchester United will not be raiding Ajax

16:19 , Jonathan Gorrie

Erik Ten Hag has denied reports he could be set to raid Ajax this summer when he takes over at Manchester United.

The Dutchman will move to Old Trafford at the end of the season, on the back of interim manager Ralf Rangnick repeatedly calling for an extensive rebuild.

Rangnick will continue on a consultancy basis even despite his appointment as Austria manager and has spoken of the need to bring in top quality signings.

Dimitar Berbatov gives his verdict on the Paul Pogba rumours

16:11 , Jonathan Gorrie

I have read the latest rumours about Paul Pogba, his contract is expiring in the summer and he is free to contact and speak to whoever. He should have done better at United, most of the time he had some injuries, his talent is immense but it didn’t quite work out. He had more downs than up at United, which is a pity because he is a great, great talent.

A United player going to City has happened before, like my former teammate Carlos Tevez, and it will be no surprise if it happens again. We will have to wait and see if Pogba makes the switch across town, but that temptation of working with Guardiola will be big for players and that will be a big factor if he is thinking about a move like this. Also, playing with a different team with new challenges will appeal to him.

If he does go to City it will be a big challenge for him, staying in Manchester but playing for a rival, that can bring some heat, jealousy and all these kinds of feelings.

In the last games and the last few months, not everybody has been happy with Pogba playing for United and some of the fans have been voicing their opinions, so maybe so fans won’t be disappointed to see him leave.

Fernandinho is set to leave City and they are looking for someone to replace him, Guardiola is there, they have great players in the team and playing for City means a great chance of winning the Premier League.

The most important thing in this situation is what Ten Hag thinks, maybe Pogba has already spoken to him. It won’t be a major surprise to see him going to City, it’s happened in the past and I’m sure it will happen again.

Berbatov was speaking to Betfair.

Could Paul Pobga REALLY join Manchester City?

16:04 , Jonathan Gorrie

Manchester City have been offered the chance to sign Manchester United star Paul Pogba in a sensational deal this summer, according to reports.

The French midfielder is out of contract at Old Trafford at the end of the season, when it is widely expected he will depart the club for the second time with no agreement reached over a lucrative extension.

Pogba has been linked with returning to his native France with Paris Saint-Germain after his United deal expires, while he has also been mentioned in connection with the likes of Real Madrid and former club Juventus.

Prediction

15:56 , Jonathan Gorrie

The Seagulls have proven an incredibly tough nut to crack this season and United can expect a difficult game unless they can kick into some more serious form of their own.

1-1 draw.
