Man Utd women play their first game at Old Trafford in front of fans

  Man Utd women play their first game at Old Trafford in front of fans KATHRYN BATTE: Man United were the team that, for 13 years, didn't care about women's football. The team that had been part of the club was disbanded when the Glazers tookover in 2005.But that is in the past and United cannot be accused of not caring anymore. A crowd of 20,241 watched on as Marc Skinner’s side played their first game at Old Trafford in front of fans. A brace from Alessia Russo and a Katie Zelem penalty cancelled out Claire Emslie’s opener to give the Red Devils a 3-1 victory.

Manchester United’s season hit a new low on Saturday following a dismal 1-0 loss to relegation-threatened Everton.

Anthony Gordon scored the only goal of the game for Frank Lampard’s side. His strike was deflected past David de Gea via Harry Maguire.

In truth, it was an awful performance from the Red Devils who now face an extremely tough task to finish in the top four now.

Ahead of the 3 pm kick-offs, United trail Spurs by three points having played a game more. They’re also three points behind Arsenal with the Gunners having two matches in hand.

At the final whistle, the United players looked dejected as they walked off the pitch.

The full-back has made a quicker-than-expected recovery from a hamstring injury and boss Jurgen Klopp will decide whether to throw him straight back in.

And that was evident in the post-match interviews – especially the one given by goalkeeper, De Gea.

The Spaniard didn’t hold back when speaking to BT Sport after the 1-0 loss, calling the team a “disgrace.”

He said: “It is a disgrace from us to be honest, we should be winning this game. We don’t score but we don’t create proper chances to score. We are not good enough, that is for sure. It will be difficult to be in the top four.

“They played Wednesday and they were tired but they had more desire than us, that is not acceptable. Very sad to lose today.”

Meanwhile, De Gea’s manager, Ralf Rangnick, admitted that it will now be tough for his side to qualify for next season’s Champions League.

“It’s difficult,” he told the BBC. “If we don’t win our own games it doesn’t make sense to hope for good results from the other teams.”

He also played down suggestions that their current search for a new manager was a distraction.

Rangnick also insisted the speculation surrounding the club’s next manager – expected to be Ajax’s Erik ten Hag – didn’t impact the performance at Goodison Park.

“I don’t think this should be an excuse,” he told BT Sport. “We are Manchester United. We have lots of international players. There shouldn’t be an alibi.

“There will be a new manager next season. If this is announced now or in 10 days it shouldn’t have an impact.”
