Brandon Williams Is The 'Sh*thouse' Manchester United Need Right Now
Manchester United fans are loving Brandon Williams' combative nature after a tweet detailing it has gone viral.
Williams made his first Premier League start against Brighton on Sunday and was Man of the Match in United's 3-1 win.
But United fans have noticed that the young full-back seems to have a ruthless streak in him to go alongside his playing ability.
It feels like the kind of attitude United have been lacking in their team for years.
• Cousin to Zelfa Barrett [23-1 champion boxer]
• Headbutted Accrington Stanley's captain in a pre-season friendly
• Squared up to De Wit on European debut
• Man-handled Hudson-Odoi on Cup debut
• Squared up to Maupay on first League start

His cousin is super featherweight boxer Zelfa Barrett who's record currently stands at 23-1.
It shows that a ruthless streak exists within the Williams family.
Fans are loving the attitude that the youngster has when he's out on the pitch.
Badly need such a personality in this current squad

Need those fighting types in this team! Too many soft touches in the past and some now but controlled grit, determination and skill is what I'm here for

The 19-year-old has already endeared himself to most United fans in his altercations with Chelsea's Callum Hudson-Odoi and Brighton's Neal Maupay.
Williams' tussle with those two ended up with his one opponent tumbling over the advertising boards while the other was a face to face.

United's first choice left-back Luke Shaw has been out since August through injury.
But boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says the young Englishman's performance means he's becoming hard to leave out.
Per The Metro, he said:
"Brandon was excellent. He's played well before, but first start at Old Trafford in a Premier League game, you don't know how he's going to react.
"I told him on Thursday just look forward to this one, I thought it was more fair to him when he's playing his first game that he didn't play on Thursday, so excellent performance.
"He's really, really impressed me, I have to say, he's making it hard to leave him out."
It will be a joy to the ears of fans at Old Trafford who feel their current malaise is down to a lack of fight on the pitch.
