Manchester United fans have taken to Twitter to voice their discontent at the performance of their on-loan defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah, after the Dutch international’s own goal against Huddersfield saw Fulham sink to the bottom of the league.
The 20-year-old full-back has yet to progress in what appeared to be an extremely promising career having made his debut for the Red Devils at just 18 years of age. Last season, he started brightly whilst on loan with Crystal Palace, but ultimately ended up third in the pecking order behind Joel Ward and rising star Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
His latest career episode comes whilst out on another loan spell, this time with the Cottagers, but his fortunes have gone from bad to worse whilst at Craven Cottage.
The former Ajax man gave away a penalty for the opening goal in what turned out to be an embarrassing performance against Bournemouth two weeks ago, whilst the aforementioned own goal against the Terriers has United fans questioning his credentials and ability to make the grade at Old Trafford.
Let’s take a look at some of the best tweets from United fans regarding Fosu-Mensah’s form…
I love Fosu-Mensah but he’s seriously struggling at Fulham. Always believed he’s a CDM. But unless his fortunes change don’t see him staying at utd. Hope he turns it around.

I'm not going to jump on the anti Fosu-Mensah bandwagon.
He's still a kid. Has much to learn. I have seen his brilliance. I have also seen his mistakes. He will come good.
Not everyone will start like Rooney.

Fosu Mensah is clearly a talented young player but he's very inconsistent and nowhere near ready to be playing for us regularly. Think he's very over hyped within our fan base. People were saying he should be our starting midfielder not too long ago. https://t.co/xfJOkp7SmO

Fosu-Mensah is no better than Antonio Valencia. We really really need to stop pushing this narrative that he'll turn into a world beater for Man Utd.

Fosu Mensah not good enough so far at full back position

Fosu mensah as a CM?
Fosu as a Rb?
Perhaps still he got the chance
The only thing which lacks from his game according to me is his crossing and attackimg sense
He can make those runs and make long passes but crossing wise not good enough
Defensively he has the pace !
