Chris Smalling is Absolutely Slaughtered by the Manchester United Fans

Chris Smalling is Absolutely Slaughtered by the Manchester United Fans

Manchester United were defeated by Newcastle United earlier today and one player in particular seems to be taking the brunt of the criticism from fans.

The result leaves United a whopping 16 points behind Premier League leaders and bitter rivals Man City, and a lot of supporters are pointing the finger of blame firmly at Chris Smalling.

The centre-back didn’t cover himself in glory for Newcastle’s goal after failing to win an aerial challenge in the build-up and his general form this season hasn’t been much to write home about.

All in all, there’s plenty of fans who are pretty raging with Smalling today, and if he’s wise he’ll stay off Twitter for 24 hours at least:

What do you think of the reaction, and Smalling’s performance in general?
