Manchester United fans were less-than-impressed with an average Alex Telles display vs West Ham…

When Alex Telles was signed from FC Porto, Red Devils fans rejoiced. It meant no more Luke Shaw at left-back. Finally, this club had someone whom they could count upon to be fit week-in-week-out.

After an excellent handful of games to kickstart his Manchester United career, Telles was given his first massive test against West Ham yesterday.

From minute one, the Brazil international was struggling to deal with Jarrod Bowen, whose pace and trickery was on full display. Telles’ positional awareness was often not there, either. He switched off on more than one occasion.

It was never looking like a good game for Telles beforehand. We’re talking about a full-back who thrives on getting forward. Instead, West Ham targeted the ex-Porto man and consistently pushed him back. I guess it doesn’t work in his favour when you’ve got Aaron Wan-Bissaka on the other side as he’s an absolute wall that opposing teams try to avoid.

This isn’t me knocking on Telles. He’s been brilliant for us thus far, it’s just that some undeniable weaknesses of his were on full display last night. The good news is that he’d bounce back with a lovely ball into Mason Greenwood, who’d duly tuck home and make it 2-1.

He’s an absolute winner and I don’t doubt next time out, Telles will put in a proper bounce-back performance. It’s that elite mentality that’s certainly gotten him where he is today and that will never change.

For now, though, we’ll leave you with some tweets of several unimpressed United fans, who weren’t best-pleased with Telles’ average display yesterday…
