Wayne Rooney's decline appears to have accelerated since being dropped by Jose Mourinho.
The Englishman was selected to start against Fenerbahce in his favoured lone striker role on Thursday night but struggled to make an impact.
One particular moment in the first half encapsulated how Rooney isn't the deadly finisher - let alone the player - he once was.

From Anthony Martial's defence-splitting pass into the 18-yard box, Rooney - who was through on goal - produced a shocking first touch and gave Martin Skrtel the chance to clear.
The disappointment on the Manchester United captain's face said it all. Scroll down for a video.
MISSING: ROONEY'S FIRST TOUCH
The Rooney of old would have taken a touch and found the back of the net in one sweeping move, but those days appear to be over.
Rooney ultimately failed to do what Moussa Sow did 20 minutes earlier, the Fenerbahce striker scoring a phenomenal overhead kick with 90 seconds played.
From Hasan Ali Kaldirim's cross, Sow acrobatically leathered a strike past David de Gea and into the top-left corner, stunning Jose Mourinho's men.
Another dour performance will likely see Rooney dropped for Sunday's game against Swansea City, further worsening his situation at Old Trafford.
"It's obvious I'm not as quick as I was," he admitted recently. "A lot is made of where I play, and how I play, and obviously it gets a bit frustrating at times."
