Some Man Utd fans react to Brandon Williams’ impressive performance against AZ

Brandon Williams returned to the Man Utd starting line-up against AZ Alkmaar last night.

The left-back put in an excellent shift at both ends of the pitch after concerns over his defensive discipline led to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer taking him out of the side for the games versus Tottenham and Man City.

United went on to win these games, so Solskjaer got his call bang on the money, but it was nice to see Williams responding the right way and helping to keep a clean sheet against Alkmaar.

The Red Devils sat back in the first-half, hoping to soak pressure and hit their Dutch opponents on the counter-attack, which meant Williams wasn’t at his adventurous best.

He was given extra license to go forward after the interval as United caused Alkmaar some real problems.

Williams got forward from left-back, created lots of space, looked for one-twos on the flank and contributed in other ways to United’s attacking play.

Here’s how United fans reacted to his performance…
