It was all doom and gloom for Manchester United before Wednesday's FA Cup quarter-final fixture against West Ham United.
The Red Devils were humiliated at the hands of north London outfit Tottenham this past weekend, leaving themselves with a mountain to climb in their pursuit of securing a place in the top four of the Premier League.
West Ham, on the other hand, headed into the game with a great deal of confidence and were widely tipped to inflict more pain on Louis van Gaal's stuttering side.

In fact, ahead of the contest, the club caught up with celebrity fan Danny Dyer, who didn't hold back when making his prediction.
Dyer suggested that Manchester United - in the post-Sir Alex Ferguson era - are finished and West Ham would secure a comfortable 2-0 victory.

Danny Dyer prediction
As you can see in the tweet below, he stated: "It's going to be 2-0 West Ham, because we're the greatest team on the earth at the moment.
"Manchester United are finished, ta-ta, Ferguson's gone: we're going to Wembley!"
But things didn't go to plan for Dyer and West Ham United. The Red Devils produced one of their best performances of the season as they secured an impressive 2-1 victory in the last ever cup tie at Upton Park.
Goals from Marcus Rashford and Marouane Fellaini were enough for Van Gaal's side to book their place in the semi-finals of the competition.
Unsurprisingly, United fans opted to troll Dyer on social media...
Following the contest, Van Gaal praised his team for their fighting spirit and insisted that he's determined to win a trophy for the club.
As per the Daily Mail, the Dutchman stated: "I want to win a title here. I’ve won everywhere I’ve worked and I want to win a title here.
"I’m not important; but the club, the fans and players are. When you play a game here at Upton Park and play like we have after a defeat, it shows my team have fighting spirit.
"I do my work and do my utmost best everywhere I worked, and every where I went, I won something.
"That’s why I’m here at Manchester United. I’m here because I won titles, not because I’m a lousy trainer."
United will now take on Merseyside outfit Everton in the semi-final at Wembley next Saturday evening.
