Manchester United fans react to very average Marcus Rashford display against WBA

As we all know, the onus has been on Marcus Rashford to find the back of the net in the absence of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The 35-year-old Swede served the last of his three-game domestic ban yesterday, and we’re desperate to get him back out on the field as soon as possible.

Coming off the back of an excellent little cameo for England, I expected Rashford to lead the line wonderfully. Sadly, he just didn’t produce. He looked lively and energetic throughout, but the things he kept trying just didn’t pay off.

Overall, the 19-year-old coped with the physicality of the West Brom defence supremely poorly, and you have to say that on the whole, you expect better. Barring a couple of half-chances from outside of the area, his game as a whole was a very average one.

Personally, I was surprised that Rashford wasn’t substituted off for Wayne Rooney, but instead, it was Henrikh Mkhitaryan who was hooked. Based on these tweets we’ve compiled, it looks like the majority of the fanbase feel the same. That’s not to say Rashford won’t come good in the end, however.
