Sir Dave Brailsford, a regular fixture in the director’s box at Manchester United games since Sir Jim Ratcliffe secured a 27.7% stake in the club in February, witnessed the problems he has inherited first-hand in Thursday’s defeat at Chelsea. United’s faint hopes of securing Champions League qualification this season were dashed in the dying moments of stoppage time at Stamford Bridge. United completed a stunning comeback through goals from Alejandro Garnacho and Bruno Fernandes to lead 3-2, but an injury-time penalty allowed Chelsea to snatch a dramatic 4-3 victory.
