Manchester United's Post From Start Of The Season Goes Viral After Wolves Loss
Manchester United put in a rubbish performance against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday evening, and it's only made a tweet from the opening day of the season look even more foolish.
Ralf Rangnick's side were at their very worst in the first half against Wolves, and somehow managed to survive until the break without going behind.
The hosts were slightly improved in the second half, and Bruno Fernandes nearly put them ahead when he hit the woodwork having come off the bench, only for his fellow Portuguese midfielder to grab the winner.
Moutinho ended 42 years without a win at Old Trafford for the visitors, striking from the edge of the area in the 82nd minute, leaving United four points behind fourth place Arsenal and a ridiculous 22 points short of Manchester City.
At the beginning of the season the 13 times Premier League champions had their eyes on being part of the title picture and, after beating Leeds United 6-1 on the opening weekend, even tweeted about being top of the league.
That post has gone viral following Monday's loss, with opposing fans taking a lot of delight out of the post, they really should have just stuck to 'not saying it.'

They’re closer to the relegation zone than they are to the top now😭😭😭😭😭 https://t.co/tC3mHAoTlQ— MagicMeslier🧤 (@MagicMeslier) January 3, 2022
That tweet should be on one of those 'pictures preceding unfortunate events' pages considering how badly its aged in recent months.
The loss against Wolves was United's sixth of the season in the league and the first under Rangnick, and was also the second game without a win in three, following the draw to Newcastle United last week.
After signing Cristiano Ronaldo, Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer, the team were expected to finally compete for the title, or at least easily keep their top four spot.
Whilst City's incredible form, combined with Liverpool and Chelsea dropping points, has made Pep Guardiola's side almost uncatchable already, United have been poor all season, leading to the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The hiring of Rangnick hasn't helped as much as fans would have hoped and Luke Shaw revealed how bad things are at the club in his post match interview on Monday.
We don't think the club's Twitter admin will be rushing to show off the club's early season performance in the future...
