A 2-0 defeat to Stoke City on Saturday has pushed Manchester United down to the sixth spot in the PL table.
The defeat to the Potters was United’s fourth straight loss, and they have now gone without a win in their last eight matches.
Following the poor defeat, Louis van Gaal is alleged to have missed Manchester United’s training session this morning, with Ryan Giggs being in-charge in the Dutchman’s absence.
And this morning, with the first-team players going through their paces ahead of tomorrow’s home match against Chelsea, social media has been awash with tweets about the former Bayern Munich and Barcelona boss failing to turn up at the club’s Carrington training base, including a mysterious tweet from first-team coach Frans Hoek.
