Many Manchester United fans were left slamming the display of Mason Greenwood despite their win at Fulham in the Premier League on Wednesday night.
Although Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men managed to grind out a 2-1 win at Craven Cottage thanks to goals from Edinson Cavani and Paul Pogba after Ademola Lookman has given the home team the lead, the display of the England international flattered to deceive several members of the Old Trafford faithful.
Should Greenwood start for Manchester United?
He failed to record a single shot on target, key pass, accurate cross or long ball from his position out wide on the right, earning him a quite measly 6.5 overall rating on Sofascore, the lowest out of all of his teammates to have started the game.
The 19-year-old also only managed to have a mere 47 touches of the ball, the third fewest out of his teammates who started the match, including goalkeeper David De Gea, and also lost possession of the ball 12 times (Sofascore), meaning that he lost it roughly every 3.9 touches on average.
Manchester United fan reaction to Greenwood display
These Red Devils slammed his performance on Twitter, with one supporter even going as far to say as he was ‘very poor’:
“I thought Martial played ok Areola saved Fulham of an embarrassment he’s so good. I thought AWB, Bailly, Greenwood all had very poor games, Bruno and Martial okayish games. Maguire, Shaw, Pogba and Cavani were superb”
“Greenwood is not doing okay at all”
“How do you solve a problem like Mason Greenwood? Seemingly a “generational talent”, but presently extremely worrying. The lad seems totally lost. Can’t do a thing right. Seems to have no idea how to play that right sided position. Ole won’t play him as a no. 9. What next for him?”
“Greenwood, Martial and Rashford need to go play with the reserve team for 1 month”
“Greenwood did not go for the rebound ( Bruno’s shot that hit the post)… He was ball watching…and sleeping on the field I hate when strikers do that”
“Our strikers: Martial, Rashy, Greenwood need to step up. They are the ones doing poorly of late. Otherwise, it’s nice form for the club”
