United fans react on Twitter to Darmian's performance against Sunderland

Manchester United defeated Sunderland 3-0 on Saturday but what did fans think of Matteo Darmian's performance?

Manchester United finally reached the top of the Premier League once more after they defeated Sunderland 3-0 at Old Trafford on Saturday.

After a tough first half, Memphis Depay scored in added-time to ensure a much easier team talk for United manager Louis van Gaal, while second-half goals from Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata secured what was ultimately a comfortable victory.

Summer signing Anthony Martial was exceptional up front, causing constant problems for Sunderland’s back-line, but it was another recent addition that really caught the eye at left-back.

Matteo Darmian has impressed on the opposite flank so far this season, but replacing the injured Marco Rojo, the Italian international showed he can be just as effective on the left.

Time and again he got forward while never ignoring his defensive duties and at this rate he will go on to become a United great.
