MANCHESTER UNITED were mercilessly taunted after going behind at Old Trafford to Brighton.

Erik ten Hag’s first game in charge of the Red Devils started terribly, with the visitors bossing the game.

Pascal Gross latched onto a ball across the box from former United man Danny Welbeck to open the scoring.

After madly celebrating the goal, the delighted visiting fans then turned their focus on ripping into Manchester United.

They started with a chant of “You’re going down the Palace”.

The build-up to the match was dominated by talk of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ten Hag decided to bench his wantaway superstar.
