Number of Man Utd fans react as 21-year-old impresses in disappointing defeat at Newcastle

In the the wake of another disappointing result, finding positives is becoming a real task for us Manchester United fans.

Our start to the 2019/20 season has been unexpectedly bad — the worst start suffered by the club in 30 years — and I can’t see when results will start going our way again.

The squad is so light there’s not been a game this season, apart from Chelsea at Old Trafford, when we’ve played well as a unit.

There was only one shining light against Newcastle.

After playing out of position (left-back) against Arsenal on Monday night, Axel Tuanzebe started in a more familiar role at centre-back in Victor Lindelof’s absence. He partnered Harry Maguire and looked very good defensively whilst always calm with the ball at his feet. 

I mean, what’s not to like about a 21-year-old homegrown lad who has already captained Manchester United at every level?

See below as a number of United fans took to Twitter to pass comment on Tuanzebe’s recent display.
