Manchester United fans have lost patience with defender Chris Smalling

Manchester United suffered a shock defeat away to Newcastle United on Sunday, losing 1-0 in the English Premier League.

Before this afternoon, the Magpies had failed to win at home in the league since way back in October.

It’s a result that leaves Jose Mourinho a massive 16 points behind champions-elect Manchester City and locked in a battle for the top four, with Chelsea just six points behind having played one less match.

Fans were left absolutely fuming with the display and had particular criticism for defender Chris Smalling.

The centre-back conceded a free-kick and was booked for simulation in the second half, a set-piece that led directly to Newcastle’s opening goal, which he also failed to deal with defensively.

Fans are now calling for him to be dropped, sold or even have his contract terminated, having completely lose patience with his ability to lead the Red Devils defence.

They took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
