Manchester United fans react to Tahith Chong's performance

Tahith Chong was one of the only bright spots in Manchester United’s draw at Huddersfield.

The real disappointment was that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer did not play him from the start.

Instead, Alexis Sanchez started and was awful. He deserved to be substituted early in the second half.

Chong was lively when he came on, even if he could not quite find the breakthrough.

The teenage winger made a number of impressive runs off the ball and nearly managed to score, having a shot from a tough angle saved.

The 19-year-old has been one of United’s best players at under-23 level and deserved his opportunity.

It was not a cameo which would have attracted the world’s attention, but it was enough to confirm what we already knew, that Chong needs a first-team run.

He should really have been given more opportunities months ago, but it’s better late than not at all.

Chong is a must start at home to Cardiff City next weekend.
