Manchester United’s rocky start to the Premier League season has seen Erik ten Hag’s Champions League qualification chances slip, according to Opta.
Erik ten Hag‘s club has been shrouded in controversy over the last few months, with the club needing to sort out both Mason Greenwood and Antony with the players facing domestic abuse allegations, and Jadon Sancho claiming he is being ‘scapegoated’.
At the beginning of the season, Opta’s supercomputer claimed that United had a 63.2% chance of finishing in the league’s top four next season – but after four games in, this chance has dropped to just 28.42%.
In terms of winning the league, originally the club had a 1.70% chance of lifting the Premier League trophy – but this is now at an even lower 0.09%.
After the September international break comes to a close, United will take on Brighton at Old Trafford in a bid to regain their form – but the Seagulls are no easy opposition.
There have been calls to start Rasmus Højlund up front after the player made his debut against Arsenal at the beginning of the month, with the lack of goals so far concerning.
Bruno Fernandes has been in fine form over the international break, having scored two goals and collecting three assists in two games for Portugal in the last few days.
