Manchester United fans took to Twitter to vent their frustration at Louis van Gaal's insistence on playing Daley Blind at centre-back.
The Dutchman, who typically operates in central midfield or at left-back for Manchester United and Holland, partnered Chris Smalling at the heart of a back four for the Red Devils.
But Blind was caught out on a number of occasions in the first-half although Manchester United led thanks to a Kyle Walker own goal.

Blind, signed last summer from Ajax, is valued for his versatility but many United fans feel like it's a step too far to expect him to contribute at centre-back.
Louis van Gaal has attempted to strengthen his central defence, with Manchester United strongly linked with Real Madrid star Sergio Ramos.
But now that the Spaniard has agreed a new deal with the La Liga giants the Manchester United boss will have to explore other targets if he wants to reinforce the position before the close of the transfer window.
As for Blind, fans and journalists alike felt he was found wanting both in terms of strength and pace - to be expected when a full-back slots into defence and faces a striker of Harry Kane's ability.
What did you think Manchester United fans - should Daley Blind continue at centre-back?
