​​​​​Pascal Gross’ first-half double gave Brighton a surprise 2-1 win at Manchester United as Erik ten Hag’s reign got off to the worst possible start.

The unmarked Brighton midfielder found himself in the right place, at the right time, to tap the visitors into a 2-0 lead with two goals in nine minutes in the Old Trafford sunshine, as the hosts – with Cristiano Ronaldo starting on the bench – were booed off at half-time by their own fans.

However, Alexis Mac Allister’s scrappy own goal midway through the second period, awarded after a lengthy Video Assistant Referee [VAR] check for both handball and offside, briefly breathed new life into the hosts and their supporters.

But United were unable to find an equaliser and as a result, Ten Hag suffered defeat in his first Premier League encounter, while Brighton secured a first-ever win at Old Trafford.

Man of the match: Pascal Gross

How Brighton ruined Ten Hag’s Man Utd bow

Optimism was high in the stands as United made their way out on to the pitch to begin another season in search of the Premier League title, especially with a new man at the helm, but that lasted all of half an hour.

The Dutchman, who even changed the dugouts at Old Trafford in a bid to bring back the glory days, has spoken of the challenges facing him, but this disjointed performance will have really brought that home to everyone.

Pascal Gross celebrates his opening goal against Manchester United

After a bright start, including a bad miss by Bruno Fernandes, who swept a shot high over the bar from an unmarked position on the penalty spot having been set up by Scott McTominay, United imploded in the lead-up to half-time.

The visitors, playing more like Ten Hag’s former side Ajax than his current one in the first period, cut their opponents open to take the lead as the impressive Leandro Trossard picked out Danny Welbeck’s run in the box.

And the former United forward’s ball from the left byline was touched home by an unmarked Gross at the far post to leave Old Trafford stunned, but worse was to follow six minutes before the interval after another well-worked Brighton goal cut United’s defence open.

Cristiano Ronaldo started on the bench for Manchester United. Ronaldo has asked to leave United and only has 45 minutes of match action under his belt from pre-season after family reasons kept him away from the club’s summer tour.

But there were Man Utd debuts for Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez, who signed this summer from Brentford and Erik ten Hag’s former side Ajax respectively. Fellow arrival Tyrell Malacia was also named among the substitutes.

Meanwhile, Brighton did not name any new signings in their starting XI, although Chelsea loanee Levi Colwill did feature on the bench.

Moises Caicedo, another to catch the eye, Gross, Adam Lallana and Solly March were all involved, before the latter’s low driven cross was only parried by David de Gea straight to that man Gross, who again side-footed into an empty net.

It could have been worse for the home team, with McTominay fortunate to only be booked after his sliding tackle caught Caicedo high on his ankle midway through the first half, with VAR deciding to give the Scotland midfielder the benefit of the doubt.

Bruno Fernandes missed an early chance for Manchester United

All eyes were on Ronaldo at the interval and it took Ten Hag little time to bring the Portugal forward on as United went to a flat back four, although it was Brighton who could – and should – have scored the next goal in the contest.

However, the VAR somehow decided new United centre-back Lisandro Martinez had not pushed Welbeck over in the box and soon the hosts were back in the game as the previously secure Robert Sanchez flapped at a corner, with Mac Allister then bundling the ball into his own net after a goalmouth scramble.

The VAR checked the goal after a possible handball by Diogo Dalot and a potential offside against Harry Maguire, but it stood as United were left with a quarter of the game to turn it around.

However, despite oodles of possession and a fervent home crowd willing them on, the match petered out as Brighton comfortably wound down the clock to leave Ten Hag with much to ponder after just one game at the helm.

What the managers said…

‘I’m not satisfied, we could have done better’

Man Utd boss Erik ten Hag:

“It is definitely a set-back, a real disappointment, but we have to deal with it,” he told Sky Sports. “I knew from the start that it wouldn’t be easy, it’s a process and takes time, but we don’t have time. We have to win games and we should have done better.

“I analyse it and it was unnecessary. We gave too many easy balls away and the organisation was a big mistake. It was not the way we made it out, we made it clear how to deal with certain situations when we drop in. but that happens, we have to analyse and take the lessons from it.

“I think so [desired Ronaldo impact?]. It was clear to see that the second half, we were better in midfield with (Christian) Eriksen down and Ronaldo up. Then we created and (Marcus) Rashford had two really good chances. It’s a pity we didn’t score them for 2-2.

“It takes time [for Ronaldo to get fit], you cannot force it. He has had one week of training and he has to do more to get fit. This game will help him with 35/40 minutes. Now we have one week and he will be better next week.

Ten Hag was left wanting more from his team after the 2-1 reverse

“I’m not satisfied [with Eriksen and the attacking unit]. I’m totally not happy because we lost and it was not necessary. We should have done things better.

“Even with those players, we could have done it better [will there be more reinforcements?]. It [the challenges this season] is the same. I knew before it would not be easy to construct it, to build it, develop it and it takes time. I know we don’t have time, we have to deliver and we are aware of this situation.

“I said it after the game in the dressing room that I saw it in the game [did you see a togetherness?]. In the action in the second half, we were acting as one team, battling for a better result. I’ve seen it clear, and also in the first half. It’s not that we didn’t battle or we didn’t have the right attitude, we made mistakes on the ball, passing mistakes, organisational mistakes and in defending.

“We have to [fix them quickly], but we also have to take the lessons and learn quickly from it.”

“It was a great performance,” he told Sky Sports. “It was a deserved win over the course of the game and a fantastic effort from the players so a fantastic start.

“We had an idea of how to attack and when we could, we tried to press and put them under pressure. We were positive, we were brave in what we tried to do and the boys gave it everything. It’s a difficult place to come with the quality they have and the crowd get behind them really quickly. Our performance first half was really strong.

“I’ve not seen it back [the penalty], but the guys seem to think there was a chance of it. We had a few fouls that were waved away and you’re not going to get everything here, that’s just the way it is. We can’t complain too much. Those are the margins you need, we had enough on our side today and we’re happy with that.
