Huddersfield 2 – Manchester United 1
Pretty much no one saw Manchester United’s defeat to Huddersfield coming.
Jose Mourinho’s side had been Manchester City’s main challengers this season and had looked strong in both the Premier League and Champions League.
Meanwhile, Huddersfield, after a promising start had begun to slow down and looked short of goals.
Cue a fine Huddersfield win, thanks to first half strikes by Aaron Mooy and Laurent Depoitre.
Marcus Rashford pulled one back with 12 minutes to go. But, United fell to an embarrassing defeat and their fans are looking for a scapegoat.
5 minutes after Victor Lindelof came on…
Phil Jones was withdrawn through injury on 23 minutes. Swedish defender Victor Lindelof came on and within 10 minutes Huddersfield were 2-0 up.
Lindelof has looked decent in the Champions League this season but Jose Mourinho’s fears about playing the Swedish centre back in the Premier League have lead many to doubt him.
For the first goal, Lindelof was turned inside out before Aaron Mooy clipped the ball home.
The second goal was even more of a personal disaster for Lindelof. So much so that Manchester United fans are already labelling the Swede Victor Lindeflop.
Lindelof effectively pulls out of a long ball over the top and allows Depoitre to run through on goal.
Manchester United fans savage Maja Nilsson
There seems little doubt who the flop of the game was for Manchester United.
As a result, his fiancee Maja Nilsson has been receiving some pretty awful abuse on Instagram and Twitter.
Maja Nilsson has been somewhat outspoken since joining Manchester United, specifically about the price of boxes at Old Trafford.
Nilsson posted an image from Huddersfield on Instagram and some of the comments are shameful.

It doesn’t get much better for Maja Nilsson on Twitter…
The abuse has been noticed by some Manchester United fans on both Twitter and Instagram.
How can any sane football fan feel this is a good way to treat one of their own players?
Social media is an incredible tool, but no one deserves this type of abuse.
