‘Clearly not ready’, ‘shocking’, these Man United fans are unimpressed with 19-year-old’s display vs Astana

A section of the Manchester United supporters have clearly not been impressed with the performance of Tahith Chong during the club’s 2-1 Europa League defeat to Astana on the road.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer picked a very young squad for the Kazakhstan trip with qualification already sealed and the youngsters produced a good display despite being on the losing side.

While a number of club graduates made their mark on the game, Chong had another outing to forget as he missed a clear-cut chance to find the net when United where 1-0 ahead.

Shortly after, Astana found the equalising goal and this was soon followed by the winner which came through United debutant Di’Shon Bernard, who deflected a cross into his own net.

A defeat with a young squad is relatively acceptable but some fans have clearly been left frustrated by Chong, who should have definitely scored after Luke Shaw put the ball on a plate for a simple tap-in.

Twitter Reactions:

The 19-year-old has impressed on numerous occasions for the development squad but he has been able to replicate the same level of performance when he has got the chance at the senior level.

His current deal with the Red Devils expires at the end of the campaign and based on his first-team displays this term, his prospects of regular gametime with the club appear bleak for the future.

Manchester United are scheduled to host Aston Villa in the Premier League this weekend. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to make a complete overhaul of the starting XI from Thursday night.
