‘Maguire is League One level’ – Man Utd players SLAMMED by fans
A first-half brace from Pascal Gross proved enough for Brighton, who won for the first time ever at Old Trafford.
It was a dismal display from Man Utd, especially in the first half, which conjured up the wrath of Red Devils fans after the game.
Harry Maguire was to blame for Brighton’s opening goal and he was unsurprisingly targeted by Man Utd fans online.
It was coming. Welbeck has been running in behind Maguire all half. He's too slow for a high line— Mark Goldbridge (@markgoldbridge) August 7, 2022

Guys just track Maguire’s movement in the build up to that goal…this guy is League One level…— Jesus In The Bando (@DeeRolaz_) August 7, 2022
Man Utd’s central midfield duo of Scott McTominay and Fred were dominated by the brilliant Moises Caicedo, and the pair received a lot of flak from Man Utd fans.
Starting with Roy Keane, who blasted the Scotsman and Brazilian working as a pundit on Sky Sports.

Bro you can have Guardiola Klopp Ten Hag Conte and Tuchel managing you together but with Fred & McTominay in midfield you won't get far— 𝐀𝐅𝐂 𝐀𝐉𝐀𝐗 💎 (@TheEuropeanLad) August 7, 2022

Ten Hag also received criticism for his decision to start Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane on the bench.

Rashford endured a miserable afternoon as he missed two massive chances in the second half.
The Englishman has struggled in recent years and many fans continue to doubt if he is good enough for Man Utd.
