Erik ten Hag has denied that Manchester United is in crisis following their 3-1 loss to Brighton. 

United is having their worst run in the Premier League era, though five points is their lowest return after five games, under Louis van Gaal in the 2014-15 season.

“We have to be very disappointed and annoyed at ourselves,” Ten Hag said. “We will turn this around. But there is a demand on us to win games.

“Definitely that is something that bothers me [form] but also I have to see the way we play [which was good] but it’s about character. Now we have to see how strong we are and how the team sticks together.”
