Manchester United were ruthlessly trolled by Brentford on Sunday after finding themselves 4-0 down to Manchester City by the midway point of their Premier League showdown at the Etihad Stadium. The Red Devils were no match for their Manchester neighbours as they ultimately went on to find themselves on the end of a 6-3 thumping.

United went into their clash across town off the back of four straight Premier League victories. But they fell behind after eight minutes as Phil Foden turned in Bernardo Silva’s cross. Erling Haaland then scored a quickfire double in the latter stages of the opening period as he got on the end of two Kevin de Bruyne deliveries. And Foden turned in his second from close range just before the interval as the hosts found themselves in dream land.

Before the game at the Etihad Stadium, United hadn’t lost in the Premier League since mid-August. That defeat had come in west London against Brentford as the Bees won the match 4-0. On that occasion, all four of Brentford’s goals had come in the opening period, meaning they matched the Citizens’ first half showing. And the club’s Twitter admins were more than happy to make the comparisons as they mocked United.

“Brentford Manchester City,” read the post with a shaking hand emoji between the words. “4-0 up at half-time.”
