Many Manchester United fans were left slamming the display of Donny van de Beek despite their side’s emphatic 9-0 home win over Southampton in the Premier League.
Despite their huge victory, which saw as many as eight different players scorer for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team at Old Trafford, several Red Devils fans were left very underwhelmed by Van de Beek’s performance as he came on in the second half, replacing Luke Shaw.
Should van de Beek start for Manchester United?
The central midfield player lost out on 100% of his duels in the game, and also failed to record a single shot, dribble, key pass, cross or long ball in the half (Sofascore), despite the Saints being down to 10 and even nine men during his time on the pitch.
He did not make much of an impact at all upon after coming on, as he earned a quite measly 6.4 overall rating on Sofascore, the worst out of any of his teammates.
Manchester United fan reaction to van de Beek display
These Man Utd supporters slammed his performance on Twitter, with one fan even going as far to say as the 23-year-old Netherlands international was ‘missing’:
“I think Van de Beek showed why he deserves to be on the bench last night, he’s had a few opportunities to come out and earn his place in the team now and hasn’t taken any of them. Playing against 10 men, score 5 goals (in the half that he was on for) and he’s involved in nothing”
“Van de Beek did not know what to do, where to go, where to stand, where to run. He looked so lost”
“Not complaining after a 9-0 win but Van de Beek isn’t good enough”
“Van de Beek had 45 minutes to prove himself against 10 men. Didn’t.”
“Really don’t rate Van de Beek from what I’ve seen”
“vVn de Beek is missing in this game”
