It has happened again. James Wilson has scored his second goal in three matches for Brighton, and Manchester United fans aren't too pleased about it. 

Of course, they will be more than content by the fact that Wilson is progressing in the Championship, but the majority of them would have been hoping to see him on show in Bournemouth on Saturday evening. 

Louis van Gaal's side have been heavily criticised for failing to produce the goods in attack throughout the course of the season, but the Dutchman opted to send the Red Devils' exciting young talent out on loan anyway.

Wilson netted the opening goal for the league leaders of the Championship in their 2-2 draw with Derby this afternoon.

And here's what the Old Trafford faithful thought about it...

So, did Van Gaal really make a mistake by offloading Wilson? Well, with captain Wayne Rooney struggling for form and fitness, the Red Devils have a lack of options up top. They have exciting youngster Anthony Martial in their ranks, of course, but he's still proving inconsistent at this stage in his development. 

The likes of Marouane Fellaini and Memphis Depay can also star up top, but they're not exactly out-and-out strikers. 

For one reason or another, though, Van Gaal just didn't fancy Wilson. The United boss must now hope that his forward stars step up sooner rather than later. 

Manchester United fans: what did you make of the decision to offload Wilson on a temporary basis? Have your say below!
