Former Chelsea Striker, Chris Sutton has criticized Manchester United’s summer signing Sofyan Amrabat after his recent performance in the Red Devils’ Premier League defeat to Crystal Palace over the weekend.
Amrabat struggled in an unfamiliar left-back role as Man United lost 1-0 at Old Trafford against Crystal Palace.
The Morocco international won only six of 14 ground duels and one of two aerial duels during the encounter as Crystal Palace wreaked havoc down his wing.
The 27-year-old struggled against Crystal Palace’s Jordan Ayew, conceding a free-kick midway through the first half, which the visitors capitalized on to take the lead through a brilliant goal from Joachim Anderson.
“Given away a free kick, being driven back towards his own goal by Ayew, and he palms it, a keeper would be proud of that,” Sutton told BBC Radio 5 live (via Manchester Evening News).
“He is not looking comfortable in that left back position today, like a fish out of water.”
