Andreas Pereira's reaction was priceless when Fred messed up a simple pass

Newcastle United v Manchester United - Premier League

Manchester United have hit rock bottom. 

The Red Devils have nine points from eight games after sleepwalking to a 1-0 defeat away to Newcastle United. 

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is at risk of becoming their fourth manager sacked in six years. 

"We're disappointed, of course we are," Solskjaer told Sky Sports. 

"We do lack quite a few key players, but that's no excuse now. 

"The players worked hard, they ran their socks off. At the moment we're in a position that we're not used to. 

"The boys, some of them lack that little bit of composure, that confidence in the last bit."

You can say that again. 

Nobody covered themselves in glory, but some were more guilty than others. 

David de Gea was visibly seething in his post-match interview. 

Solskjaer could well be the one to carry the blame, yet he was badly let down by his players once again. 

United actually had more possession (69% to 31%), more shots on target (3 to 2) and completed more passes (578 to 267) than the Magpies. 

What on earth were they doing with all that possession, you may ask. 

It's easy to see why they didn't score, however, when clips like this emerge of Fred trying to control a short pass under no pressure. 

Andreas Pereira's face is an absolute picture. 

Of an abject midfield, £52million man Fred was particularly poor and gave a glimpse of why he's only started one league game all season. 

The Brazilian didn't create any chances and the number of times he lost possession reached double figures in the second half. 

United have made some poor signings in the post-Fergie era, but he's got to be up there with the worst of the lot.
