Manchester United fans ruthlessly slammed Scott McTominay following his disastrous showing against Brighton on Sunday.
Erik ten Hag's reign as Man United boss got off to the worst start possible as his side succumbed to Graham Potter's Brighton at Old Trafford.
The visitors went into the break two goals up thanks to a Pascal Gross brace.
The hosts pulled one back through an own-goal by Alexis Mac Allister, but were unable to find an all-important equaliser.
Man United weren't at the races, with their midfield exposed and fans singled out McTominay, who failed to get going in the middle of the park.
He was lucky to avoid a red card following his reckless tackle on Moises Caicedo, as Ten Hag eventually dragged him off in the 77th minute.
Man United fans made their feelings known over McTominay's lacklustre performance on social media.

Nothing sums Scott McTominay up better then him receiving a yellow card after trying to pass a football.— 🔰 (@UtdRyan_) August 7, 2022
As long as McTominay is a starting midfielder we are going to die by transitions— Casey Evans (@Casey_Evans_) August 7, 2022

McTominay is a danger to himself, his teammates and the opposition— NATURE vs NURTURE (@Scamzel) August 7, 2022
This game is a shock reality for Erik ten Hag that no matter how tactically good he is, Fred and McTominay midfield will NEVER work.— UtdFaithfuls (@UtdFaithfuls) August 7, 2022
Manchester United have NO midfield.
Scott McTominay is the worst midfielder in the premier league and it’s not close.— Breezy (@BreezyUTD) August 7, 2022
