Van Gaal watches the action against West Ham.

Manchester United fans frustrated again as Red Devils draw blank against West Ham

Published 4 Comments

Manchester United fans were once more left frustrated at their side's lack of cutting edge during their 0-0 draw with West Ham at Old Trafford this afternoon.

The Red Devils had scored just 20 goals in 14 league games going into this afternoon's showdown against the Hammers, but weren't able to increase that tally and capitalise on Manchester City's slip up against Stoke earlier on today.

There were groans of frustration at Old Trafford throughout the game, and it was pretty much the same on Twitter too.

On a windy afternoon, Marouane Fellaini was given the nod to start in place of the injured Wayne Rooney, and it was the Belgian who bore the brunt of the fans' frustration.

The Belgian was heavily criticised for his performance up top, namely for his inability to provide the spark Manchester United required in order to break the deadlock, and missing chances himself.

If you happen to be a member of the Fellaini family, it might be a good idea to look away now:

Of course, Van Gaal was also a target for abuse, especially given the attractive brand of football that Liverpool have been playing since Jurgen Klopp took charge at Anfield.

There was at least some good news as Guillermo Valera made his full debut for the Red Devils.

However, overall, it was another frustrating day for Manchester United fans after their side drew a blank in the Premier League, with a crucial Champions League showdown against Wolfsburg in midweek. Still at least Rooney looked happy, watching on from the stands with a pocket full of sweets. Good to see that £300,000-per-week isn't going to waste.

Do you think Louis van Gaal will still be in charge of Manchester United in the summer?
