Think he started ok, made a very good run just before Ighalo’s chance, which was ignored. Looked much more comfortable on the ball than Aaron and his positionating offensively was also way better streching for the side/and offside line. Sadly (and naturally), he played himself down in the 2. half showing that his defensive awarenes and 1 on 1 abilities aren’t good enough. I highly doubt he will make it here

I think he's ok going forward, poor in defence. It annoys me to see him start at RB ahead of Williams.

What the hell did our scouts see in him? There are better right-backs in League 1 and possibly League 2 as well.

More comfortable on the ball going forward than AWB but not enough to compensate for his quite clear defensive problems. Gets beaten too often 1 v 1 in his time here and doesn't follow his man on the run.

Just such a bad defender. Hopefully he moves on this week.

He was good in a few final third combinations, he could have even scored.

But boy on the other hand, he's so bad at so many basics things like positioning, when to step in on your opponent, when to step in and tighten the back 4, when to go wide, short vs long first touch, when and how to defend a cross.

A Alien invasion.
He got further up the pitch than Mensah and he put in one decent cross.
That's all I can remember.

He is so poor. No wonder why Ole picks Fosu Mensah over him.

There are no stand out attributes in his game. He is poor defender and his attacking game isn't good either.

His passing is erratic, decent dribbler, sometimes he crosses well but most times they are overhit.

I hope he is loaned out where he can play regularly.

Have we blocked last nights broadcast From getting to Italy?

Clear he needs to be moved on. No real need for a loan as we have good options at full back. The lad needs to play somewhere, and it’s not happening at United.

It's tough, not playing and then being drafted into a reserve type team for cup games but he's been poor. He is somewhat okay on the ball, nice cross for Pogba but his postioning is awful. The way Dan Burn got past him and then Bailly came in with sliding challenge was just too easy, by a man Mata had outsprinted in 1st half. Bailly made a great cover in 1st half as well, Dalot was idly jogging back when Bailly sprinted back to cover his side.I'd like to see him develop but I'm not sure his position, he's poor defensively, he's okay at times attacking but not enough that you'd play him in more advanced role like winger. Wing back in a good team maybe, where his defensive weakness can be covered.I think either sell him or loan him would be best for both player and club right now.

He is so unlike a fullback in the way he plays. Just seems like a very ordinary winger, played out of position.
Aye, he's a strange case alright. Was really highly rated as a youngster but it's never been clear to me why he was. He just doesn't have any attributes to be a FB.
