Manchester United were embarrassed at Old Trafford as they lost 3-0 against Bournemouth with a toothless display.

The Reds were unable to create any clear-cut chances and couldn’t deal with the attacking threat from Bournemouth.

Erik ten Hag’s side looked nothing like they did three days ago against Chelsea, where they did manage to produce a good performance, and that has been the story too often for Ten Hag this season.

Former United striker Michael Owen slammed Ten Hag following the defeat and has claimed that he is not the future of the club.

The ex-Premier League striker is yet to be convinced that there is a clear playing style under the Dutch manager at Old Trafford.

“There is no identity in this team whatsoever,” he told Premier League Productions. “I don’t know what they’re trying to do, counter-attacking, possession team? I’ve got no idea what they are. I’m not convinced by this Man Utd team at all, and I haven’t been for years now.

‘I can’t see Ten Hag being the future of Manchester United. ‘He’s had long enough to have now a clear identity of how they are going to play – and it’s still a total and utter mish-mash of players.’

United now have games against Bayern Munich and Liverpool in the next week, and it will be a crucial week for Ten Hag, who always seems under pressure.

He will be without captain Bruno Fernandes after his petulance earned him a yellow card late on against Bournemouth, which suspends him for the trip to Anfield.
