Football News

Manchester United youngster Paddy McNair has enjoyed quite debut season in the Old Trafford first-team. 

Defensive dilemmas and injury blows have handed the youngster an opportunity to shine under the Louis van Gaal regime, and he hasn't looked back since. After making his debut against West Ham United in September, he's quickly moved himself up the pecking order at the Theatre of Dreams.

Greatest challenge 

Against Arsenal this past weekend, however, he faced the biggest challenge of his career to date as he featured in the Red Devils' back-line against the attacking talent of Alexis Sanchez and Co. 

And, once again, he proved himself worthy of a place in the team as he played a key role in helping United secure their first away victory of the season in a 2-1 win at the Emirates. 

The youngster was, however, involved in a controversial incident after he took down Gunners midfielder Jack Wilshere. The England international ultimately had to be replaced in the showdown and has now been ruled out of action for the next three months.

Wikipedia change 

And one keyboard warrior has decided to take action...on McNair's wikipedia page. In fact, on his page, it's been suggested that the talented youngster is now the favourite to win the the BBC Sports Personality of the Year award after taking down the Arsenal man. 

A bit harsh, perhaps - but a few Manchester United fans may well be holding a grudge after Wilshere appeared to head-butt Belgian midfielder Marouane Fellaini.
