Loads of Man Utd fans show support for youngster after unwarranted heavy criticism

Brandon Williams came under fire for his performance in Thursday’s Europa League draw against Club Brugge.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made six changes to the side that beat Chelsea on Monday and Williams retained his place in a left-wing back role.

The United boss will be relatively content coming away with a score draw; Anthony Martial’s first-half strike still makes the Reds hot favourites going into next week’s second leg at Old Trafford.

Admittedly, Williams was poor in the first-half against the Belgian outfit. He squandered possession a number of times on the left and struggled to adapt to the position as well as did at Stamford Bridge.

But the criticism he has received from some sections of supporters has been completely unjust.

Williams has rarely if ever let Solskjaer down this season and inconsistencies in his game should be expected for a player that has been thrust into the first-team limelight this term.

The 19-year-old has provided excellent cover at left-back and has even established himself as Solskjaer’s number one option.

But Williams may be taken out of the firing line if the United boss reverts to back four against Watford in the Premier League on Sunday.

Luke Shaw has excelled in the left-centre-back role this week and deserves his chance to start in his familiar left-back role.
