Manchester United fans react to poor performance from players vs Burnley

by Marwan Harraz

Manchester United fans were furious with their players after going 2-0 down at half time to Burnley in the Premier League.

The Red Devils were at home for Boxing Day but failed to put up any kind of fight in the first half of the match.

Jose Mourinho’s men seemed to still be licking their wounds after their late 2-2 draw with Leicester City in the last fixture.

With no one particular player performing poorly, almost every United player walked off the pitch with their heads hanging in shame.

Perhaps only French star Paul Pogba was the one who seemed to put in any type of effort into the match but supporters could not think anything but negative thoughts after being outfoxed by the away side.

Mourinho has often thrown his players under the bus after poor results but fans will surely be pointing fingers at him just as much as anyone else.

The Portuguese manager decided to field Zlatan Ibrahimovic in behind Romelu Lukaku and it ultimately proved to be a horrendous decision with the Swede being hooked at half time.

Having Ibrahimovic present in the squad is certainly a positive but the former PSG man is nowhere near ready to be starting matches and looks short of any type of match fitness.

The two players also couldn’t seem to combine well with each other and it appears unlikely that the pair will be able to partner up successfully.

Jesse Lingard has been in fine form of late and perhaps was unfairly dropped for Zlatan.
