Erik ten Hag’s team were made to pay for a poor defensive performance as they fell to their third defeat in four games in the U.S.
Manchester United led through Diogo Dalot before Dortmund’s Donyell Malen scored twice inside a minute at the end of the first half. Antony equalised in the second-half but another mistake at the back allowed Youssoufa Moukoko to score the winner.
Ten Hag’s team had the feeling of a reserve side with Harry Maguire, Donny van de Beek and Facundo Pellistri all given starts but he will still be unhappy with the catalogue of errors which led to Dortmund goals.
It was a night when the Dutchman also made a point with his choice of captain, handing the armband to Scott McTominay despite Magure’s inclusion just a week after stripping the England defender of the armband in favour of Bruno Fernandes.
United started well and took the lead midway through the first-half when Van de Beek’s lay-off was collected by Dalot on the edge of the box and the Portuguese full-back guided a controlled effort into the corner.
The game, however, began to turn in Dortmund’s favour after the 30-minute mark. Youngster Omari Forson was involved in a scuffle with Julian Ryerson and Karim Adeyemi and was substituted shortly afterwards.
The 19-year-old was given encouragement by McTominay and Christian Eriksen as he walked off but got a lecture from Ten Hag on the touchline that lasted nearly a minute.
