Wout Weghorst has failed to hit the ground running at Manchester United after joining the Red Devils on a six-month loan.

Meanwhile, some fans are getting frustrated — but it's not about the Dutchman being a bad player or not fitting the system at Old Trafford.

In fact, the biggest concern appears to be that Man United are not playing to the striker's biggest strength, failing to complete a cross to him against Arsenal.

Name Changed (via RedCafe): "He would be useful if we crossed the ball or played to his strengths. But we never will. Rashford is always going to cut inside to look for a shot. Antony does nothing. I don't think it would be that bad a signing if we did something to get him in the game."

Jeffthered: "And how many decent crosses has received in two games? Our issue is the squad, let's not be harsh on him.

DJ_21: "Works hard for the team. That’s all you can ask from a player. Always putting in effort. Bit odd that we aren’t crossing much to him though. I get ETH doesn’t want us to be a long ball/crossing all the time team but we can mix it up sometimes. What’s the point in having a 6ft6 striker if we ain’t gonna use his strengths."

abailey123: "Don't think he was poor at all. He pressed from the front, had sod all service from midfield and when the ball was played in to him be brought other players in to the game. He makes a good run in the second half and McTominay plays such a poor ball. Get the lad some service before you judge him in front of goal."
