Manchester United fans react to Axel Tuanzebe’s performance against Swansea

<> at Old Trafford on March 10, 2015 in Manchester, England.

Manchester United Football Club returned to winning ways on Tuesday night. Jose Mourinho’s men beat Swansea City 2-0 to book their place in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup.

The manager made a whole host of changes for the clash in Wales, with defender Axel Tuanzebe coming into the team for his first start of the season.

At just 19, Tuanzebe showed a maturity beyond his years with a commanding defensive performance. The young man won headers, positioned himself perfectly and was also excellent in possession.

It gives Mourinho another option to rely upon, which is great considering the trouble we’re having with injuries back there.

Although it’s harsh, Tuanzebe already looks far more accomplished than Victor Lindelof in the centre-back role, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the young man from the Democratic Republic of Congo has already leapt in front of the Swede in the pecking order.

Every single time Tuanzebe has been handed a start, he’s always impressed. I feel that we have a real star of the future on our hands, and in my opinion, he deserves far more opportunities than just the odd start in the Carabao Cup.

As you’d imagine, the United fans were buzzing about the performance all over social media.
