Manchester United fans fuming with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for ignoring Angel Gomes against Wolverhampton Wanderers

by Leo Nieboer

Manchester United fans were far from impressed with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer once again following the club’s tepid 0-0 draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers in the FA Cup third round on Saturday.

The visitors were once again painfully flat, devoid of momentum going forward and passing in a manner that was painfully predictable.

Amid such a backdrop, it was understandable to see so many United fans ask the question: where on earth is Angel Gomes?

For a team whose players – and this is a problem dating back to before Solskjaer – struggle to use the ball effectively in tight areas, especially in the final third, it is baffling that Gomes does not get a look in.

This is a player whose locomotion is dizzyingly good. Gomes is capable of turning out of sticky situations and fizzing into the final third in a way that exceeds the likes of Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard and even Anthony Martial.

And yet, for whatever reason, he is completely ignored – even in games like these, where his influence would have been felt so strongly. United fans, in turn, are asking a very simple question: why?
