Twitter reacts as Manchester United draw at home to West Ham United
Manchester United moved to third place but did not take full advantage of Leicester City’s slip up against West Ham United.
David Moyes returned to Old Trafford and put up a stoic defence that could have even been three points.
Jarred Bowen was a terror down the flank and gave Brandon Williams a nightmare. The experience will have done the youngster good.
Paul Pogba gave away a penalty that was converted by Michail Antonio in first-half stoppage time. Thankfully, Mason Greenwood drew us level in the second half.
We could not push on and get the winner, much to our irritation. However, we just have to avoid defeat at the King Power Stadium at the weekend to ensure a top-four finish.
Whether it is one point gained or two dropped will depend on where we finish at the end of the season. Fans, however, were not happy with what they perceived as a lack of ambition. We take a look at a few of them below.

Throw away 4 points in 2 games at home to bottom half clubs. We don’t deserve Champions League football.— Hussain (@HussainD1) July 22, 2020
Bottle jobs! This is a poor poor team, Delusion united fans think we can challenge LFC next season! We are a Million miles away from even looking at them! To make it worse we have a counter attack merchant with no tactical brain in charge! Embarrassing lool— abdiakeem (@abdiakeem) July 22, 2020
So, so poor. Every single time we have an opportunity to capitalise, we fail to do just that.— Jordan Clarke (@FourFourJordan) July 22, 2020
WTF were the tactics today, play for a draw?! WE ARE MANCHESTER UTD AND WE’RE PLAYING FOR A DRAW AT HOME TO WEST HAM! FML. Everyone awful today, simply not good enough. Need a huge summer(dejavu) 😡— UtdGrev (@UtdGrev) July 22, 2020
The fact that Solkjaer didn’t make any changes is a damn joke. Bruno has been so tired these past few games. Pogba is nowhere to be found and Matic can’t do it all.— MrJunzz (@JunzzMr) July 22, 2020
Overall performance was an absolute joke.
Lazy players, without character, without a winning mentality. They have nothing to do with United.— MarioChecho (@ChechoMario) July 22, 2020
Out everyone !! What a lack of ambition, my God!
A point here was not bad. Still a decent result. Only need a point at Leicester to get top 4— Jake Wilson (@JakeWilson1011) July 22, 2020
Did these players understand that Champions League was on the line?— Taz 🔴 (@Tarum_7) July 22, 2020

Not good enough. Westham had 80% possession for 15 minutes and ole made no changes. Get out of this club. Spineless.— OlesWheel (@oles_wheel) July 22, 2020
Not fucking good enough. It was a disgraceful performance, it should be 3 points, about 4 goals ahead and no major pressure going into the final game, now, every touch in our half will be nervous watch— Mufc_Tony Martial (@MufcTonyMartia1) July 22, 2020
