A New Era somehow managed to drop new depth in their second game as Manchester United were ravaged 4–0 by Brentford.

All goals came within the first 35 minutes at the GTech Community Stadium as Erik Ten Haag's dream job showed every sign of a speedy landing in an unspeakable nightmare.

After sitting out of United's pre-season tour amid reports that he wants to leave the club, Ronaldo returned to lead the line, testing David Raya with an opening shot.

It was a regular save for the Brentford goalkeeper, although his compatriot at the other end showed that perhaps there was no such thing.

Pressure from the hosts ruffled United in the first half and Ronaldo fell under pressure from Christian Norgaard and Jensen, the latter feeding on Dasilva.

Buoyed by Brentford's late equalizer at Leicester last weekend, the attacking midfielder's shot was accurate, but without any ferocity to let De Gea whisper through his glove.
