Manchester United’s supporters have taken to social media in numbers on Saturday evening, to single a trio of the club’s stars out for heavy criticism.

CR7 decides it

The Red Devils, of course, returned to action a short time ago.

In the 3rd fixture of the Ralf Rangnick era, buoyed by a timely upturn in form of late, United made the trip to Carrow Road, for a Premier League meeting with Norwich City.

Rangnick and co. headed into proceedings aware that a 3-point haul would guide them clear of both Arsenal and Tottenham in the English top-flight, to join West Ham in 4th-place.

And, ultimately, this is what the visitors managed.

A solitary goal, netted by Cristiano Ronaldo from the penalty spot fifteen minutes from time, proved enough to guide United to a hard-fought triumph, over an increasingly resilient Norwich outfit.

Rashford amongst those slated

As alluded to above, though, whilst, in the end, their side got the job done in East Anglia, those of a Manchester United persuasion appear far from satisfied on Saturday evening.

In truth, the Red Devils were lucky to come away from proceedings with all three points, with only the heroics of David de Gea having prevented what would have been a deserved Norwich equaliser late in the action.

And though none of Ralf Rangnick’s squad (de Gea and perhaps Fred aside) exactly covered themselves in glory over the course of the 90 minutes, it is three players in particular who have since been singled out for the vast majority of the criticism post-match.

The stars in question? Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes and match-winner Cristiano Ronaldo:
