I'd rather he didn't call out United fans for justified criticism when he was playing terribly. He should say "yes I was crap, but I have trained hard and now I am reaping the rewards".

He is one of the most disrespected forwards in the entire league. He can reply however he likes.

this guy cannot be our main striker. he seems like a nice guy but he's just not good enough. aguero would walk away from this with a hat trick

Not clinical enough. Missed huge chances at 0-0 and 1-0 today.

Get Lingard, Rashford and Martial back as our front 3

Simply put his misses and De Gea's feck up cost us the game.

Need to be more clinical next game. Top 4 could be a tough ask which will make our summer harder.

Thought he looked good again today, he looks fitter and back to beast mode but should have done better with at lest one of his chances.

That's unlike Lukaku.

Did everything great except finishing, which was atrocious.

We saw today why he is nowhere near good enough when it comes to the crunch. He should be walking away with the match ball under his arm.

Reactions today aren't based on one game. Sky showed he had 6 goals in his last 3 games, and the 30 before that he had 6 goals too. Not an elite striker and has cost us.

Decent game for Rom overall today I thought. His finishing just wasn't there and he wasn't helped out by Rashford who was shocking.

4 yards out, hits the crossbar.

Dribbles the keeper, mishits it. Fecks up the rebound.

One-on-one from 6 yards out. Hits the keeper.

All his fault.

You just can't trust him to be your main striker because he's always capable of games like today.

I thought his all round play was good but he's our main striker and he missed two sitters and it's cost us big time.

His record in the big games against our rivals is as bad as it gets.

Really good game. He didn’t intend to miss those chances, but it just so happened.

Even on his good day he's going to miss these chances you don't want your first team striker missing. Linkup was great

i'm more surprised that people get fooled by his purple patches, historically he has always been that type of player to score a bunch in patches after long droughts, and for a top team that wants to challenge that just isn't good enough

He was MOTM really but those misses weren’t great. The 2nd one ok he’s made that opportunity and it’s actually really good goal keeping but the 3rd one he has to be taking that first time. Other than those, hold up play was brilliant, touch was good, linked up play well and looked dangerous. Needs to become a bit more greedy for me and just run at people as no one can cope with him when they are shoulder to shoulder.

His finishing was terrible today, totally unlike him. Was very good apart from that and much better than Pogba, Rashford or plenty of others. Strikers do miss chances you know. However, his record against TOP 6 is appaling, it's just funny how he was great 2 hours ago and now he's not good enough.

I don't get the praise for him today. The only redeeming feature of his game is goals. He missed chances that could have completely changed the game. His link up play is still terrible.

A useful squad player.

Has a great game outside of the box and it's all undone by his poor game inside the box. The finishing is where you expect him to shine but it failed him today.

Frustrating. Should certainly have two, possibly three. Should have an assist as well.

It looked like he could have had 200 chances and not scored, it was one of those days.

I've been saying for a long time his record against the top teams is what will stop us challenging for the title. Big players and strikers score the chances he had. Simply should have buried one of them. His overall game was superb but he has to finish his BIG chances. He has to.

He was still good today despite not getting his goals.

Can't rely on one striker all the time anyway. His partner was trash.

Yeh.. a few good games, running his mouth off on fans, then playing like this. Although seems like he likes criticizing people, maybe he'll learn his lesson.

If you think his link up today was terrible you are blind.

By which standards was that a "decent" game? He missed 2-3 sitters today. If your main striker has those many misses then the only way he could have a decent game is if we set up multiple chances himself. He basically kept the ball a bit better than usual and that is all it takes it seems for people to think he had a good game.

The moment he missed that sitter from 4 yards out I knew he would cost us like against Spurs earlier in the season. Really needs to be upgraded as he cannot lead the line if we want to challenge for titles.

You can't miss 3 huge chances as a striker and be considered to have had a good game.

He looks slimmer and fitter and his touch and passing was good but his finishing cost us hugely.

Not sure what to say

On one hand he generally did well, on the other hand he wasted some absolutely mental chances.
