Northampton Town v Manchester United - EFL Cup Third Round
Manchester United are going through a lean patch after a blistering start

Manchester United have already said goodbye to the Premier League title. Halfway through the season, United trail Manchester City by a massive 15 points. The Citizens are in rampaging form and the possibility of them losing the title is minimal.

The next realistic target for Mourinho is a top-four finish and it does not look easy either. Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham, and Arsenal are hot on their heels and they cannot afford to lose any more ground.

Martial, Rashford, Lingard, Pogba, Matic, and Young were brilliant for United over the last 5 months. On the other hand, Old Trafford has witnessed some poor individual performances this season.

On that note, let's have a look at the worst Manchester United players this season.

#5 Matteo Darmian

Bristol City v Manchester United - Carabao Cup Quarter-Final

Darmian has been used only as a squad player by Jose Mourinho ever since he took charge at the Old Trafford. The form of Antonio Valencia and resurgence of Ashley Young has left Darmian's United career in jeopardy. His form of late hasn't been good either.

Damian's contribution to United's attacking play did not impress Mourinho this season. Though he is a better defender, Darmian struggles more often to provide the impetus going forward.

Darmian made 7 appearances for United this season (EPL & UCL) and virtually nothing to show for a fullback. He made a solitary key pass in 7 games combined, and a total of 2 crosses with 0% accuracy, which is really poor for a fullback. Overall, a poor season for the Italian international.
