Manchester United’s season went from bad to worse on Wednesday as they were dumped out of the Carabao Cup by Newcastle United. 

Miguel Almiron, Lewis Hall, and Joe Willock were all on the scoresheet as the Magpies ran out 3-0 winners at Old Trafford, setting up a quarter-final tie against Chelsea next month.

United, who won the trophy last season by beating Newcastle in the final, have endured a dreadful start to the new season, but it appears that manager Erik ten Hag’s position is currently safe.

According to TalkSPORT, the Dutchman’s job is safe for now, despite United’s awful run of form.

So far this season the Red Devils have won just seven of their 15 games across all competitions, losing the other eight.

Ten Hag is under pressure to turn United’s fortunes around

United’s form has been particularly poor at home, with Ten Hag’s side losing to Galatasaray, Newcastle, Brighton and Hove Albion, Crystal Palace and Manchester City already.

Despite those in charge of the club currently being in support of Ten Hag, the report also claims that the 53-year-old is under pressure to turn things around quickly.

Ten Hag joined United from Dutch side Ajax last summer and guided the Red Devils to the Carabao Cup during his first season in charge, as well as achieving a top four spot and reaching the final of the FA Cup.

He has failed to impress so far this term, though, with his side currently sitting eighth in the Premier League table having lost five times in their opening ten matches.

In recent months, Ten Hag has been involved in a public spat with winger Jadon Sancho, prompting him to expel the player from the first team squad until he apologises for comments made on social media.
