Manchester United Fans slammed Scott McTominay relentlessly after Sunday’s disastrous performance against Brighton.
Eric Ten Hager’s reign as Manchester United boss had the worst start as his side succumbed to Graham Potter’s Brighton at Old Trafford.
The hosts pulled one back through an own goal by Alexis Mike Allister but were unable to find the all-important equaliser.
United were not in the game, their midfield was exposed, and fans made special mention of McTominay, who failed to move around the middle of the park.
He was lucky to avoid a red card after a reckless tackle on Moises Caicedo as Ten Hag eventually dragged him down in the 77th minute.
Manchester United fans have expressed their feelings about McTominay’s poor performance on social media.
Can’t wait for the day when I don’t have to watch McTominay again

Nothing sums him up better than Scott McTominay receiving a yellow card after attempting a pass.

As long as McTominay is a starting midfielder, we will die in transition

#mufc The epitome of the midfield problem: McTominay needed six touches in the final third and was booked for missing the ball.

McTominay is a danger to himself, his teammates and opponents

The game was a shocking reality for Eric Ten Haag, and no matter how good he was tactically, the midfield of Fred and McTominay would never work.
Manchester United don’t have a midfield.

Scott McTominay is the worst midfielder in the Premier League, and he’s nowhere near it.
