Many Manchester United fans have been left blasting the display of Marcus Rashford despite their 1-0 win over Burnley at Turf Moor in the Premier League.
The England international actually managed to grab himself an assist for the winning goal scored by Paul Pogba, but aside from that he did not have the best of games for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team playing out in a more unnatural role out on the right-wing.
Is Rashford an important player for Manchester United?
The 23 year-old lost out on four duels in the game, which was the joint-most out of any of his teammates to have set foot on the pitch, and also failed to record a single shot on goal (Sofascore), which is not ideal for a player who is in the team to score goals.
He also lost possession of the ball no fewer than 15 times in the match, the fourth-most out of any of his teammates (Sofascore).
Manchester United fan reaction to Rashford display
These members of the Old Trafford faithful blasted his performance on Twitter, with one Red Devil even going as far to say as he was ‘woeful:
“The talking point on #BURMUN. Our attacker’s performance is not so good. Rashford is woeful today. Anytime Martial is through on goal. To score a one-on-one chance has now become taboo for him, same thing he did against PSG and Leeds United, he went on to repeat it today.”
“So frustrated by Burnley’s way of play today. Shaw brilliant. Maguire robbed. Bailly wall. Martial had some chances but was still better than Rashford on the pitch. Rashy & Bruno silent. Pogba colossal #MOTM #BURMUN. Man Utd on the TOP. #MUFC Next up Liverpool Anfield here we come”
“Apart from the Assist, Rashford’s performance was horrible both individually and in team plays. Dude needs rest.”
“3 points but very poor first half. Second half was better but the hesitations on the ball is becoming increasingly troubling. Martial and Rashford had a poor game. Difficult to see us winning the league but if we continue to grind out results like this, who knows? #BURMUN”
“Best player on the pitch = Pogba. Worst player on the pitch = Rashford #BURMUN”
“DR Rashford if you lose the ball you run to get it back #BURMUN”
