Manchester United dropped more points in the English Premier League on Boxing Day, only managing to draw 2-2 with Burnley at Old Trafford.
Failing to pick up all three points means Manchester City can move a massive 15 points ahead at the top of the table if they defeat Newcastle United on Wednesday night.
In truth, the Red Devils could easily have lost the match, with Burnley conceding Jesse Lingard’s equaliser in stoppage time after the attacker inspired a second half comeback. The visitors had rushed to a 2-0 lead before half-time after a particularly poor 45 minutes from Jose Mourinho’s team.
Supporters were left deeply disappointed with the result and hard sharp criticism for a few select players, most notably defender Marcos Rojo who was hauled off by Mourinho at half-time.
Some fans hated his display so much they’d rather not see him in a Man United shirt again.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
The performance was good (in both halves, imo) but the mistake by Marcus Rojo cost us that game. Imagine what will happen when Jose Mourinho has a consistent back four that play week in week out together. Four actual defenders who offer stability. Jose needs this. #MUFC #MUNBUR

I hope we can get players this window. Nowhere near good enough. Rojo always a liability, there was no need to commit that foul to begin with. We need to do better from our corners. Well done to lingard… #mufc

Players who don't deserve to wear a #MUFC jersey again.
1. Marcos Rojo
2. Zlatan Ibrahimovic
3. Marcus Rashford
Totally wasteful today, title race is over thanks to the selfishness & wastefulness of some players in the squad.
I wonder why Martial was not in the squad #MUNBUR

I’d happily never see Marcos Rojo never play for #mufc again.

Rojo is liability every time he plays. We need CB, wingers and a striker until then we’ll carry on seeing these shit disgraceful displays week in week out #MUFC
