Marcus Rashford faced severe criticism after he failed to connect with a header following a pass from Bruno Fernandes during a match against Tottenham.
Several Man United fans trolled Rashford after the miss on social media. One user tweeted, “With what am seeing… We have a long way to go..@MarcusRashford you are busy waking on the field… You have come a long way… Plz don’t let the laziness start crawling back..Get Sancho in the match.. We need some extra juice…Bruno pliz start cooking..Mamba mentality”

After somewhat lackluster starts to their respective seasons, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United are meeting off in the Premier League, both teams looking to earn a statement victory.
Ange Postecoglou’s first game in charge of Tottenham ended in a 2-2 tie with Brentford, and this contest will be both teams’ first without Harry Kane. “If you want to make it a place where we see it as an advantage, you have to make sure the experience for opposition clubs is not a pleasant one,” Postecoglou said in reference to his goal to turn the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium into a fearsome fortress.

He acknowledged that they had struggled in their previous game and underlined the need to improve their possession performance, saying, “We have to improve in possession. We were not at all good.
