Rio Ferdinand explains why City loss wasn’t a good game for a key Man United star

Manchester United’s biggest game of the season thus far ended in disappointment, as the Red Devils were well beaten at home by Manchester City.

It’s fair to say it wasn’t a good outing for the majority, but one player, in particular, had an absolute nightmare of a fixture.

We’re talking about Romelu Lukaku. From start to finish it was an absolute horror show for the star striker, and Rio Ferdinand summed up the 24-year-old’s day brilliantly with one single Tweet.

The fact that he practically gifted City two goals was bad enough, but when he missed that huge chance to level things up late on, you just knew luck wasn’t on his side.

I think Lukaku needs some time away from the starting XI. His last few games haven’t been great, and maybe, he just needs to reignite that fire in his belly that he’ll receive from being dropped.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic isn’t a bad option to have. To be honest, the pair are similar players, so it makes perfect sense to utilise the man who is in form, while dropping the guy who’s struggling.
