Manchester United lost their fifth game of the league season against Newcastle on Sunday, with the Red Devils falling to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Rafa Benitez’s side.
Matt Ritchie’s second-half strike was enough to see off the away side, with United missing numerous chances throughout the game to either put them ahead or equalise.
The result sees José Mourinho’s men drop to 16 points adrift of Pep Guardiola’s high flying Manchester City, who won 5-1 against Leicester on Saturday. United are also now only two points clear of Liverpool, who are hot on their tails in third.
The Manchester United faithful were left fuming at the performance, and many fans took aim at particular players in the team. Anthony Martial was one of the players on the end of abuse, with his golden chances being picked up on by United fans on social media.
Here’s what some of them had to say regarding the Frenchman’s performance.
Sorry it's late but today's match was a joke there was a couple of players that did not pull their weight. Marital was terrible again today he is to inconsistent. Mata came on and changed the game. Sanchez ran all around that pitch while martial strolls around it. #mufc #mata
