Manchester United’s abject home defeat to Bournemouth saw them surpass another horrendous milestone.
Red Devils’ boss Erik ten Hag, 53, watched his side be completely torn apart by the Cherries 3-0 at Old Trafford. In a campaign which is already one of the worst in their history, the defeat to Andoni Iraola's side was arguably their worst performance of the season.
However, as well as being another crushing loss which knocks their hopes of finishing in the top four back even further, it also saw them shatter one of the worst possible milestones they could think of. It is one which would make Sir Alex Ferguson particularly furious.

The defeat to the South Coast side means United have now lost 35 home matches in the 10 years since Ferguson retired – one more than the legendary manager lost during his entire 27-year reign. This disastrous run is made up of home defeats accumulated over the course of the reigns of David Moyes, Louis van Gaal, Jose Mourinho, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Ralf Rangnick and Ten Hag.
It also sums up the immense difficulty that comes with being the manager of Manchester United. Ten Hag has often looked for the positives in his post-match assessments of his team's losses this season. However, even he was struggling to find anything good to say.

"I expected something different, I hoped before the game you can build on from the performance and result from Chelsea, so it's very disappointing, the way we started the game," Ten Hag said after the match.
"Then I think a long time we did everything to get back in the game, we get one shot, almost a penalty, then in the build-up we make a mistake and we are not good enough in the rest of defence and that is disappointing.

"You're following facts, we put a lot of effort in to turn in the game, but then the brilliance, the movement in the box were not there to get the equaliser. After the 2-0, we broke down so we have to do things better.
"The way we started is no good, that is poor. It's first five minutes of the game and especially against an opponent like today, very good transition team, you give them perfect circumstances, it shouldn't happen. But we did everything to turn in the game, we had a lot of attacks, we didn't come to a point to turn the game although we had opportunities.”
