Manchester United have been eradicated from the Carabao Cup by West Ham after their rotated assault of Jadon Sancho, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial didn’t make an impression
Misfiring Manchester United attackers Jadon Sancho, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial have been slammed by Old Trafford hero Paul Ince after the defeat by West Ham.
The trio fashioned the frontline as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made wholesale adjustments to his aspect for the Carabao Cup conflict with the Irons on Wednesday night time.
But they failed to bother the visiting defence and the Red Devils have been overwhelmed 1-0 to exit the competitors on the third spherical.
Ince accused Sancho, Lingard and Martial of taking part in style-over-substance soccer and prioritising dribbling over passing as he declared he was left “wound up” by the end result.
“I get that Sancho is still learning, he’s still young. But this is not a FIFA game, it’s not all about dribbling and dribbling and trying to beat two, three, four players or little flicks and that,” the previous England midfielder informed The United Stand .
“Yeah, it’s nice when they come off but the likes of Sancho and Lingard, all these flicks, just play proper football.
“Honestly, it winds me up!
“If you watch players like [Ryan] Giggs, they get it and they pass, one-twos and get one-on-one… we just want to keep running with the ball, trying little flicks, little back-heels.
“That’s what I noticed with Martial, I noticed it at instances with Lingard and with Sancho and that’s the place they have to be taught that it’s not all about dribbling.
“Sometimes you can pass your way through players and get yourself in the box.”

Ince was significantly pissed off by Martial’s physique language throughout the cup tie and questioned whether or not the goal-shy striker needed any half within the fixture.
“This wasn’t a top-notch West Ham side,” added Ince, who got here graduated from the Hammers academy and made 95 appearances for the east London membership.
“Some of the players you’ve probably not even heard of! It was a time for them to say to the manager, ‘I’m still here!’
“How many people are ahead of Martial now? Was he going to go in the transfer window? Ole said no and he’s still part of his plans.
“I simply checked out Martial’s physique language and I used to be considering, ‘Does he truly need to be on the market on a Wednesday night time?’
“And some players do that. When they’re not involved in the first-team on a Saturday, they think: ‘Why am I playing in the Carabao Cup?!’
“You sense that physique language with Martial. He didn’t need to be on the market.”
