Some Manchester United fans react on Twitter following 3-1 loss away to Arsenal
Manchester United can all but kiss their chances of securing UEFA Champions League qualification goodbye following the 3-1 loss to Arsenal at the Emirates.
The Red Devils went into the game following a 4-0 humbling midweek at Anfield. Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane were restored to the lineup but it made little difference on the night. It took Arsenal just three minutes to go ahead thanks to a Nuno Tavares tap-in after David de Gea made a sensational save.
Eddie Nketiah looked to have doubled the home side’s lead in the 30th minute only for him to be adjudged offside. The joy was short-lived as Alex Telles fouled Bukayo Saka in the build-up, leading to Arsenal being awarded a penalty.
The youngster scored from the spot to hand the Gunners a 2-0 lead. A floated cross from Nemanja Matic saw Ronaldo reduce the deficit soon after. It was the Man United legend’s 100th Premier League goal for the club but his muted celebrations spoke volumes of the club’s predicament.
Man United had a brilliant chance to equalize in the second half after they were handed a penalty thanks to a Tavares handball. Bruno Fernandes showed that he was better off shouting at referees than stepping up when needed by missing the spot-kick.
A thunderbolt by Granit Xhaka in the 70th minute all but took the wind out of Man United’s sails, settling the tie. The performance, if anything, sums up our season that keeps going from bad to worse. We now look at how some fans reacted to the result on Twitter.
Understandably, they weren’t happy because this now means there is a very good chance that Erik ten Hag’s first season in Manchester will not see his team in the UCL.

The best penalty taker of all time Ronaldo is in your team but Bruno Fernandes took the penalty. Maguire isn’t the problem, Bruno is!!!— Maleek (@FtblMaleek) April 23, 2022
Bruno is so frustrating to watch, watching him for another 5 years is such a pain, hopefully he gets his regular game play this season and should be a squad player under Ten Hag.— KING🤴🏾✨ (@Kingdy__10) April 23, 2022
Bruno Fernandes hall of shame— george (@StokeyyG2) April 23, 2022

At 37, Cristiano Ronaldo deserves a team with a proper system, proper structure and play with other players who have a winning mentality— J. (@StonedBatxx) April 23, 2022
I’m sorry man that u had to endure this all season
Nothing about this Manchester United side is likeable, relatable and frankly if majority of the players left, the fans wouldn’t mind.— The United Link 🏆 (@TheUnitedLink) April 23, 2022
A hall of shame performance. This is after Ole lost his job and they didn’t step up under Ralf.
You should be ashamed. Also, don’t apologise.
Why have the best penalty taker in the world and let Bruno take it, that pentaly goes in and it’s a completely different game.— Miz Hadzic (@MizHadzic) April 23, 2022
And if Ronaldo leaves and Telles stays what’s the point of supporting this club any more.#mufc #ggmu
