Manchester United fans react to Matteo Darmian's performance against West Ham

Manchester United and West Ham United drew 0-0 on Saturday but what did the hosts' fans make of the Italian's contribution?

Manchester United fans are getting used to the frustration of seeing their expensively assembled side struggle in front of goal this season, and that continued when Louis van Gaal’s side drew a blank against West Ham United at Old Trafford on Saturday.

United are great in defence – conceding just one goal at home in the league all season – but at the opposite end of the field they must do better.

One defender who had a great start to life at United only to falter slightly in recent weeks is Italian international Matteo Darmian.

The 26-year-old started against West Ham and he did little wrong but he is not quite the dynamic, attack-minded player he was earlier in the campaign.

The pressure to perform the van Gaal way could be getting to some of the United players; stars who are more used to playing a direct approach now tasked primarily with keeping the ball out at one end rather than over-extending the opposition defence.

After the match we took to Twitter to see what United fans thought of Darmian’s latest performance and you can read a selection of what we found below:
