Manchester United fans react on Twitter to Wayne Rooney's performance

Upton Park

Wayne Rooney failed to make an impact as Manchester United lost to West Ham.

Manchester United slipped to defeat against West Ham last night, with Anthony Martial's brace going unrewarded.

Martial has established himself as United's biggest goal threat this season, and Marcus Rashford's emergence has even shunted Wayne Rooney down to third.

The England international has found himself moved into midfield to accommodate the duo, and the team have not suffered for the experiment, until the fateful match at the Boleyn.

United needed a win to climb above rivals Manchester City into fourth spot, but blew their chance by conceding two late goals to slip to a 3-2 loss.

Rooney was not even a factor in front of goal, failing to register a shot on target, and even more frustratingly, did not create a single chance either.

He battled hard, winning nine personal duels, but United fans want to see him utilise his quality on the ball, rather than see him wasted.
