Erik ten Hag claimed Manchester United lacked belief and blamed the problems of last season as they slumped to a shocking 2-1 defeat at home to Brighton in their first match of the new campaign.

In an at times febrile atmosphere at Old Trafford, there were protests against the Glazer ownership of the club prior to kick-off. United’s mega store was forced to close as 1,000 fans gathered outside to express their frustration.
