Manchester United slumped to a fifth defeat in their last five Premier League games as Watford ran out 4-1 winners at Vicarage Road on Saturday afternoon.

The Hornets were the better team, particularly in the first half, and were well worth the victory and three points. United, on the other hand, were woeful.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was already under immense pressure before kick-off and has been given extra games since losing 5-0 to Liverpool last month to try and turn things around. But nothing much has changed and things only seem to be getting worse.

This is how Twitter reacted to the latest horrific setback...

Bruno Fernandes has tried to deflect pressure from Solskjaer onto the players.

Things didn't start great for United thanks to an early penalty, but David de Gea kept them in it. Technically, it was two penalties, but the encroachment meant the first one didn't officially count.

You do feel quite sorry for De Gea, though.

Harry Maguire cupped his ear to his critics when he scored for England against Albania, then was called a 'true example of a Man United player' by Solskjaer in the build up to this one...yeah.

Aside from De Gea's penalty saves, Donny van de Beek was the sole positive for United.
