Ten Hag’s men very much second best at Allianz Arena – despite Bayern not being on their best form..
Man Utd’s defeat was compounded by a goalkeeping howler by £47m summer signing Andre Onana in Munich.
The Red Devils came into the match on the back of an embarrassing 3-1 drubbing at home to Brighton.
This came just two weeks on from another crippling 3-1 loss to Arsenal.
The last time the Red Devils lost three games in a row was four years ago, under Solsjkaer.
That was near the end of the Norwegian’s first six months in charge – and was only made the permanent boss a few weeks before.
Ten Hag however has been in the managerial position for well over a year now and finds himself under alot more pressure.
United have conceded more than 14 goals in their last five games – one of which they have won.
Another unwanted record is that United have conceded three or more goals in three straight games for the first time since Dave Sexton was manager in 1978.
Last night’s result leaves the team bottom of their Champions League group after matchday one – as Galatasary drew 2-2 with Copenhagen.
The Dutch boss is determined to bounce back in this weekend’s Premier League clash against Burnley at Turf Moor.
