Manchester United's New Year Tweet is subject to a shitload of abuse.

Jose Mourinho's charges kept up their their miserable form following the goalless draw against Southampton in the Premier League on Saturday.

It follows draws against Leicester City and Burnley. Not to mention being dumped out of the League Club by Bristol City.

United continue to trail league leaders, and cross-town rivals, City, with the gap widening.

And with the turn of the new year, the club posted a pretty harmless Tweet of Ander Herrera helping De Gea with his goalie gloves.

The GIF was worded: "Getting ready for 2018 like...#MUFC"

However, the Tweet didn't go down well.

The United faithfuls, still pissed about the below-par-performances of late, reacted angrily to the post.

Happy New Year, United fans.
