Manchester United got back to winning ways on Saturday evening with a 3-0 victory over Tottenham.
Despite the positive result, a number of United supporters hit out at Fred on social media during the game.
The Brazilian kept his place in the side for his 11th appearance of the campaign and partnered Scott McTominay in midfield, with Bruno Fernandes more advanced, but statistically the 28-year-old had a game to forget.
As per SofaScore, Fred was comfortably United’s worst-rated starter with a match rating of just 6.3/10. He lost the ball 16 times, lost 15 of his 20 duels, committed four fouls and was dribbled past four times; while his name didn’t crop up once in Sky Sports‘ live web commentary on the match, which suggests that he made minimal impact on proceedings.
A number of United fans didn’t like what they saw from the midfielder, who played the entirety of the game in north London.
Is Fred United's weak link?
No, definitely not!
United fans react to Fred’s performance
Here is what some United supporters had to say about Fred, with one labelling him as ‘garbage’, while others lamented that the Brazilian “isn’t Man Utd level” and could cost the under-pressure Solskjaer his job.
“I repeat, Fred is the weakest link and will cost Ole his job”
“Fred is trash! McTominay is more trash!! ”
“Fred is a -1. #MUFC play with a -1 every time Fred plays”
“Big performance from most of the players. Fred was garbage as usual. Special mention to Ronaldo. Cavani. McTominay. AWB. Varane”
“Fred was by far the worst player on the pitch for United today”
“I know Fred isn’t Man Utd level and we as #mufc always get frustrated watching him. However, how bad has Lo Celso been for Spurs! IDK what he offers on the pitch and why he gets picked ahead of Ndombele and Ali always”
