, ‘Going down with the Palace’ – Man Utd taunted by Brighton fans after Gross fires them ahead at Old Trafford

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

Erik ten Hag’s first game in charge started terribly, with the visitors taking the lead.

Brighton took a 2-0 lead before half-time

Pascal Gross latched onto a ball across the box from former Red Devil 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”.

Brighton have a bitter rivalry with South London outfit Crystal Palace.

They then switched focus to new boss Ten Hag by singing “You’re getting sacked in the morning”.

The cheeky chants then sounded more like a potential reality than a harsh joke when Gross doubled Brighton’s lead before half-time.

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

Ten Hag decided to bench his wantaway superstar.

But he may have been regretting the call after such a horrible start at the Theatre of Dreams.
