Some Manchester United fans have been left slamming the display of Mason Greenwood despite their side’s 1-0 win over Watford in the FA Cup.
The England international was played up front by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after his previous appearances out on the right-wing at Old Trafford, but he failed to take his chance to impress the Norwegian manager in that role.
Should Greenwood start for Manchester United?
He lost out on two of his duels and also failed with two dribble attempts, and only managed a mere 30 touches of the ball in the game, fewer than his own goalkeeper in Dean Henderson who had 37 (Sofascore).
The 19-year-old also lost possession of the ball eight times in the match as he was substituted off in the 69th minute for Anthony Martial, with his overall performance earning him a quite measly 6.8 overall rating on Sofascore, the joint-lowest out of any teammates to have started on the pitch.
Manchester United fan reaction to Greenwood display
These Red Devils slammed his performance on Twitter, with a couple of supporters even going as far to say that he has been ‘very poor’ so far this season:
“Good win if not a decent watch from United in the FA Cup. But Ole needs to address confidence issues with his attackers. Greenwood looked confused and overwhelmed with the no.9 role, Martial’s boldness looks shattered, James clutching at straws….It’s worrying!”
“At this point, I’d promote Diallo & Pellistri and give them a chance over Greenwood & Dan James. What a waste of space these have turned out to be for #MUFC this season. What more do you want? If a start against lower league team doesn’t get you going then nothing will.”
“At the moment he looks like he’s 0 dimensional”
“I am happy we won all in all it was a boring match just passing within ourselves no quality, and I think its high time Greenwood takes a break and stays on the bench because the guy has been very poor this season, Ighalo should have started.“
“All the talk about Greenwood being so good, looks very poor this season”
“What is wrong with Mason Greenwood? He isn’t looking sharp yet again.“
