Manchester United defender Axel Tuanzebe made his Premier League debut for the club in their 2-0 defeat to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday, and fans were impressed with his performance.
The 19-year-old was named in the starting line-up at right-back as Red Devils manager Jose Mourinho made eight changes to the side that beat Celta Vigo 1-0 in the first leg of their Europa League semi-final tie in Spain on Thursday.
Even though he came up against one of the best players in the top flight in Alexis Sanchez, the England Under-20 international was more than a match for the Chilean and he didn’t look fazed by the occasion.
United supporters were quick to take to social media to give their views on the performance of the youngster in north London, with many saying that he is one of the only positives on a disappointing day.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
