In absolutely astonishing scenes never before witnessed at Old Trafford, Manchester United players were booed as they left the pitch at the end of their 2-2 draw with Aston Villa yesterday.
United, looking for a win that might keep manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in his job a little while longer, did their level best, but Villa matched them all over the park, and deserved at least a point.
There was unrest all through the first half, after Villa had gone ahead early on, but there was a period of respite after Marcus Rashford had equalised with a fortunate deflection off Tom Heaton's back.
United then led through Lingard, but, just as fans sensed something positive was going to happen, it didn't, and Tyrone Mings made it 2-2.
Fans heckled, there were whistles, and insults were hurled at the United players and Solskjaer on the sideline. One man threw his scarf and bobble hat onto the playing surface, as tempers frayed. Others spat.
When the referee blew the final whistle, there was a cacaphony of booing, which resounded around the stadium long after the players had disappeared down the tunnel.
Some fans refused to leave the ground, calling for Solskjaer to be sacked.
In his post-match interview, the Norwegian said:
"If we'd scored one more goal, we would have won."
