Manchester United were 4-0 down after 35 minutes against Brentford on Saturday

The result left the Red Devils provisionally bottom of the league having lost both of their Premier League games so far with a goal difference of minus five.

Post-match statistics showed Brentford ran 13.8 kilometres [8.5 miles] more than United’s faltering stars and as a result, according to The Times, Ten Hag ensured his players made up the deficit by instructing them to run the equivalent distance in training.

United’s stars were scheduled to have a day off on Sunday but such was the severity of Saturday’s defeat, the Dutchman called his players in for the savage session.

First-half goals from Josh Dasilva, Mathias Jensen, Ben Mee and Bryan Mbuemo gave Thomas Frank’s men a memorable win as they continued their unbeaten start to the season.

After the game, Ten Hag reinforced the need for new faces at the club before the transfer deadline and explained why he made three substitutions at half-time.

He told Sky Sports: “We need new players and quality players. We will try and convince them to join.

“Mistakes are part of football, you have to keep going but you have to especially act. [The substitutions] it was about bringing on fresh ones. I could have changed all eight others as well.”

For United, the season goes from bad to worse as they prop up the table after just two Premier League outings.
