Manchester United fans react to Axel Tuanzebe’s excellent debut against Arsenal

Well, Manchester United’s hopes of securing Champions League football via league position are all-but over. Jose Mourinho’s men lost 2-0 at The Emirates, in a closely-fought game until the first goal was scored.

Not much can be taken away from North London today, except for one glimmer of hope; Axel Tuanzebe. The 19-year-old didn’t put a foot wrong throughout, and he absolutely kept Alexis Sanchez in his pocket for the duration of the game – which takes some doing.

Tuanzebe, born in the Democratic Republic of Congo is predominantly a centre-back, but today he started as the right-back and he was brilliant. His pace was lightning, positionally, he was supremely good and more often than not he won his individual battles.

Seriously, he deserves huge credit for what he did this afternoon. The best part about it all was that he didn’t look phased by the occasion and instead, took it all in his stride.

Obviously, he has an awful lot of developing and growing to do but with time, that will come.

The Manchester United fans up and down the country were buzzing about the latest academy graduate to get his chance on the stage, and rightly so. Check out some of the best tweets about Tuanzebe here:
