Manchester United Scott McTominay was heavily criticized by fans after his disastrous display against Brighton on Sunday.
Eric Ten Hag’s reign as Manchester United manager got off to the worst possible start as his side succumbed to Graham Potter’s Brighton at Old Trafford.
The hosts managed to reduce the difference with a goal through Alexis McAlister’s goal, but they were unable to find the important equalizer.
Man United were not present at the races, as their midfield was revealed and their fans singled out McTominay, who failed to go in the middle of the park.
He was fortunate to avoid a red card after his reckless tackle on Moises Caicedo, as Ten Hag finally dragged him in the 77th minute.
Man United fans expressed their feelings over McTominay’s lackluster performance on social media.
I can’t wait for the day I never have to watch Mctominay again

Nothing compares to Scott McTominay than getting a yellow card after trying to pass the soccer ball.

As long as McTominay is a midfielder, we will die through transformations

#mufc The midfield problem there in microcosm: McTominay needed six touches in the final third, lost the ball and was booked.

McTominay is a danger to himself, his teammates and the opponent

This game is the shocking fact to Eric Ten Hag that no matter how good he is tactically speaking, a unique and muffled midfield will never work.
Manchester United do not have a midfield.

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

Speaking after Man United’s 2-1 defeat to Brighton, Roy Keane called out McTominay – claiming he was not “good enough”.
“Fred and McTominay, they are not good enough,” he said on Sky Sports. “They will not make Man United compete for the top.”
