Manchester United went into the match against basement club West Brom in search of what should have been a routine win after their sensational comeback victory in their previous fixture, the Manchester derby.
Yet, United produced an abject performance, devoid of speed, creativity and flair and contrived to lose to Darren Moore’s all-but-relegated Baggies thanks to a second half Jay Rodriguez goal.
The display was flat and it was matched by apathy in the stands and it was a lesson in how to halt momentum, generated by that thrilling 3-2 win at the Etihad.
Jesse Lingard was benched for the visit of the league’s bottom side but was introduced at half-time for Paul Pogba who was man of the match last week but struggled here.
After the match, footage emerged of Lingard with a fan but some United fans appear to think that his outgoing personality doesn’t make up for his failings on the pitch.
We’ve taken a closer look at the best of the reaction…
Should be ashamed himself
