Manchester United are level with with AZ Alkmaar at half-time in the Europa League group stages.
The Reds have been resolute in defence, but have yet again lacked any creativity going forward.
Solskjaer’s side have been void of any intensity in attack, rarely troubling the Eredivisie side’s defence.
Nemanja Matic and Fred have been particularly wasteful in possession, but many United fans have picked out the Brazilian midfielder for his incompetence on the ball.

The midfield must step up in the second-half, as United’s attackers are being starved of any opportunities to open the scoring.
United have scored just seven goals in their last eight matches and there is a familiar theme of causing little danger to the opposition so far in this match.
Many Reds have not held back on their thoughts on Fred’s efforts, who has never properly settled in since Jose Mourinho signed him from Shakhtar Donestk two summers ago.
Fred the most wasteful passer I have ever seen. #mufc

I'm beginning to think that Fred might be blind you know 😎🤔 if not hes right up there with the worst midfielders we've ever had #MUFC

The link up between the forward players has been poor.
Matic is shit.
Fred has given possession way too often.
Mata has looked decent.
and we have missed 2 sitters.#Mufc

Fred is solid at pressing but he lacks composure & everything he does is so erratic. Gomes has rarely had the ball because he’s ineffective in wide areas. 0 attempts on targets in 45 mins. #mufc

Matic, Fred and Mata. All terrible! We definitely need to sign a midfielder in the January transfer window. #MUFC

Strange decision to sign Fred by whoever made it. If we can somehow get £30M for him from a foreign team, snap their hand off.
