Loads of Manchester United fans have been reacting to the win at Bournemouth, and it’s fair to say they aren’t too happy with Chris Smalling.
Jose Mourinho’s side grabbed three points by the skin of their teeth on Saturday, beating Bournemouth 2-1 courtesy of a late winner from Marcus Rashford.
The youngster grabbed the winning goal in stoppage time after Callum Wilson and Anthony Martial had exchanged first half strikes, but it’s Smalling that fans are all talking about.
The towering centre back had a spree of good performances towards the end of last season, but none of the Red Devils’ defenders have covered themselves in glory so far this campaign.
Wilson’s opening goal came from the second phase of a set piece, something that will certainly infuriate Mourinho, and fans are bashing Smalling’s part in the defensive calamity.
The boss himself said the defence was “a disaster”, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
Chris Smalling. Astounded that clown still plays for The biggest club in the world.

Worst Central Defender I’ve honestly seen at Utd since Ian Ure in 71. Toss up between him and Jones for that title. Please Utd get shot of the pair of them so the Club can move forward!

there’s absolutely no reason for Smalling to still be playing football

You’ve been at the CLUB for many years and you look like a builder asking to defend! How he gets into the team is beyond me!

Its too easy because he’s useless and doesnt have a clue to what hes supposed to do. He cant even walk properly let alone defend!!!
