Former Red blasts ‘embarrassing’ display
DION Dublin described United’s performance against Wolves in the FA Cup third round as ‘embarrassing’.
The Reds were held to a 0-0 draw and failed to register a shot on target at Molineux in their second game of 2020. United had ten shots in the game but all of them were wayward.
As has been the case on countless occasions this season, United lacked a cutting edge in the final third and ex-Old Trafford striker Dublin did not hold back with his critique of the Reds’ display.
“That’s kind of embarrassing to be fair (no shots on target) and the performance showed that as well,” Dublin said on Match of the Day.
“Both teams weren’t really at it. This is the stage of the Cup that United should be getting the job done.”
Former Tottenham midfielder Jermaine Jenas was also on hand for punditry duties and said the VAR decision not to award United a firsthalf penalty was the correct one.
Brandon Williams hit the deck after a coming together with Leander Dendoncker but no foul was given, much to the frustration of United’s players.
Jenas added: “I thought the penalty decision was correct. Brandon Williams does well to get the ball out of his feet. It was a lapse in concentration.
“But I think Leander Dendoncker keeps his leg straight and doesn’t go across him. Williams sends himself over rather than being taken over. I think VAR got that one correct.”
