Man United fans were not happy with what they saw from Alex Telles vs Arsenal yesterday…
Another disappointing day for Manchester United fans took place yesterday, with the Red Devils losing comfortably to Arsenal.
In terms of performance levels, United actually played better in parts vs Mikel Arteta’s men, though they still fell well short of reaching the levels required.
Cristiano Ronaldo looked pretty up for it but defensive mistakes once again ensured United wouldn’t pick up any points.
The performance was summed up by Alex Telles. The Brazilian was brought back into the XI after being secluded from the Liverpool game – and he blatantly wasn’t good enough yet again.
Positionally, the former FC Porto man is just awful. Time and time again he was just way off the pace, leaving wide open spaces in behind and allowing the Arsenal attack way too much time on the ball.
First and foremost, his job is to defend. Telles just isn’t good enough in that aspect of the game – and it’s costing us a goal almost every single time he takes to the field.
Factor in his lack of quality in the final third, which is what he’s supposed to be best at, and you’ve got a recipe for disaster. We’re talking about a player who is supposed to be challenging Luke Shaw for the starting role but sadly, he just doesn’t have the capability to do that.
As you’d imagine, the Man United fans were not best pleased with what they saw from the 29-year-old. He truly wasn’t great against the Gunners yesterday…
