Manchester United Player Labelled 'Embarrassing' After Shocking First Half vs Huddersfield
Manchester United have just produced an 'embarrassing' first half display against Huddersfield this afternoon, and one player in particular has been targeted by many on social media.
After Phil Jones limped off after 23 minutes, Jose Mourinho decided to bring on summer signing Victor Lindelof, a player who has struggled for Premier League minutes in recent weeks.
United went onto concede twice in the next 11 minutes, with Lindelof producing a 'shocking' error for Huddersfield second goal - as well as poor defensive positioning for the opener.
Lindelof costs us the game. Absolutely embarrassing, that's why he's not played a single PL game yet.- Hesham Bilal-Hafiz (@hesham786) October 21, 2017
Laurent Depoitre made the most of the Victor Lindelof mistake, giving newly promoted Huddersfield a deserved 2-0 lead at half-time.
Aaron Mooy opened the scoring after pouncing on a rebound from Tom Ince's shot. He fired low into the net, giving David de Gea no chance in the United net.
Lindelof has had a shocker. Long kick from Lossl drops over his head, Depoitre rounds De Gea and scores.- Rob Dawson (@RobDawsonESPN) October 21, 2017
Former Benfica defender Lindelof received the brunt of criticism on social media, as United prepare themselves for an uphill battle in the second half.

Lindelof looking like the most un-Mourinho defensive signing since Khalid Boulahrouz. Tuanzebe might feel aggrieved. #mufc- Samuel Luckhurst (@samuelluckhurst) October 21, 2017

You might want to avoid social media for the remainder of the week, Victor.
It doesn't look great...
