“Now that you’ve started him, sell him.” Man United supporters criticize the team’s stellar effort in the loss to West Ham United

When Manchester United lost badly to West Ham United 2-0 on Saturday, supporters of the team took aim at Scott McTominay.

Man United was defeated by David Moyes’ team at Anfield, unable to build on their performance the previous week when they battled back to secure a point against Liverpool.

With goals from Jarrod Bowen and Mohammed Kudus in the second half, the Hammers emerged victorious, winning 2-0.

In the 72nd minute, Bowen scored the first goal following a brilliant ball from Lucas Paqueta. After Kudus took advantage of a mistake made by Kobbie Mainoo and played a one-two with his teammate, the Brazilian also set up his team’s second goal.

Alejandro Garnacho got two opportunity on the left wing in the first half, but he was unable to take advantage of them, giving the Red Devils opportunities.

On social media, Man United fans lamented their midfield at the London Stadium as they made their feelings clear towards McTominay.

Even though he has five league goals to his name this season, supporters are growing increasingly frustrated with the Scotland international.

Man United fan Adam McKola said: “Play Hojlund, create no chances for Hojlund, take Hojlund off. Poor fella. Antony, McTominay, Garnacho…create nothing for him, ever.”

A second tweeted: “McTominay is actually taking the p**s. He may as well just have got out a deck chair and put his feet and watched Paqueta.”

A third added: “Why tf is it Mainoo dropping deep, doing the dirty week, whilst McTominay just gets a free role in the final 3rd? Mainoo is nearly 10 years younger ffs.”

Another commented: “It feels like McTominay is the one fresh out of Carrington and Mainoo’s the 27 year old Manchester United midfielder.”

A fifth wrote: “Need Casemiro fit asap. I’ve honestly had enough of McTominay starting in midfield.”

Erik ten Hag’s side have now lost eight league games this season as they drop to eighth place.

Man United resume their faltering league campaign on Boxing Day against Unai Emery’s Aston Villa.
