Man United manager Erik ten Hag was seen heading to lunch in Cheshire on Monday afternoon following his team’s miserable performance this weekend.
On Saturday, ten Hag watched the Red Devils suffer a shock defeat to Fulham, as Alex Iwobi and Calvin Bassey struck either side of Harry Maguire’s goal.
A result that adds more pressure to Ten Hag, whose team now occupies sixth position in the league and eight points from qualifying for the Champions League.
After the defeat, ten Hag was seen, with his wife Bianca, grabbing a bite to eat at a lush artisanal brasserie in Cheshire.
Ten Hag headed to Junipers in Hale for lunch, where both he and his wife sported casual attire as they headed into town.

Bianca opted for an all-beige ensemble with a brown scarf, while ten Hag was dressed in all black, including an Adidas rain jacket.
At Junipers, customers can treat themselves to steak sandwiches, chicken souvlaki and sea bass for the price of £18.
On its website, the chain describes itself as “a collection of craft breweries serving an internationally inspired menu of great food and drinks.”
Despite United’s disappointing defeat to Fulham, ten Hag insisted the future remains bright for Manchester United.
The United boss said: “I’ve said since the beginning of January that we’re in the final.” We won many and now we lost one.
‘After a defeat you have to look at the big picture, and the big picture looks very good.
“We have to recover in certain positions and recover from injuries, then we will be more balanced and we will also strengthen the team in the transfer windows.”
“You see there are a lot of good players coming up and really high potential players.” They will get better, so we are definitely going in the right direction. “When we have the players available, we will have a very good team.”
Ten Hag and his wife Bianca arrived at the restaurant in casual clothes on Monday afternoon.

Ten Hag is no stranger to dining in Manchester, having been spotted dining with his wife in October.
The United manager looked relaxed as he attended his favorite Italian restaurant, Piccolino, with Bianca, just days before their clash with Manchester City.
The couple went to dinner early, but did not leave the restaurant until 8:10 p.m.
When Ten Hag left, the Dutchman held the front door open for his dining companions, but one insisted that he must leave first.
