Ten Hag has lost his first two competitive games in charge of Manchester United, becoming the first of the club's managers to do so in over 100 years.

The Red Devils are rock bottom after defeat at home to Brighton on the opening day and a 4-0 hammering by Brentford last weekend, and are one of just three teams to have lost both their first two matches this season.

Ten Hag's task just got more difficult with Liverpool the visitors to Old Trafford on Monday.

Manchester United haven't beaten their old rivals in their last eight league meetings and not at home since March 2018. Liverpool won both games last season by an aggregate score of 9-0.

And Sky Sports pundit Graeme Souness believes it is not beyond the realms of possibility that Erik ten Hag will be sacked by Manchester United if Monday night's meeting turns out the same result.

Souness said on talkSPORT : "I think it's a difficult time for Man United. I'm not sure with this group of players, with this manager, that they're going to be any different to where they were last year. I really don't.

"I think the players they've brought in are not game-changers for them. I think the clock's ticking on him already. I think that's the nature of being manager at Man United at this time.

"They expect big things from him, he's been successful at Ajax in what is a much inferior league to the Premier League, the demands there are nothing like what he's got on his shoulders in the Premier League, and indeed managing arguably the biggest club in the world."

Souness continued: "Listen, don't be surprised at surprises in football [it could spell the end of Ten Hag at United]."
