Manchester United fans have taken to Twitter to bemoan Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford’s form whilst on international duty with England, as they have not recently replicated those performances for their club.
Lingard has found the back of the net twice in two appearances under Gareth Southgate recently, against the United States and against Croatia with a vital goal.
Rashford has been in exciting form too, for whilst he did not find the net this international break, he has looked a completely different player than the ineffective one under Jose Mourinho.
The United academy graduates have been industrial off the ball, looked dangerous on it, and have been instrumental in the Three Lions’ direct attacking play with their movement in behind and powerful running.
Naturally, those associated with the Red Devils are questioning why their players aren’t putting in the same performances back at Old Trafford, and have mostly narrowed it down to one factor; the manager.
Let’s take a look at some of the best tweets…
Jesse Lingard needs to turn this England form into his Manchester United form. Goals badly needed.

The manager needs to do better. He is killing these players. Pochettino will get the best out of these player for sure

Jose wouldn’t allow it.
And wouldn’t let Marcus run at defenders like he did in that game

There is a reason why Lingard and Rashford look a lot better for England than for United, and its not the players fault

Why is this still difficult for you to see? They are defenders at United and often get isolated without enough service.
