Cape Town - Manchester United fans have hit out at defender Ashley Young after a horror display by the defender in his side's 1-0 home defeat to Barcelona in a Champions League quarter-final, first-leg on Wednesday.

Man United have another monumental task on their hands in the Champions League after Luke Shaw's own goal gave Barcelona a first leg lead with the home side recording zero shots on target.

Shaw turned Luis Suarez's header into his own net after just 12 minutes and despite being far from their best, Barca comfortably held out to edge towards a first Champions League semi-final in four years.

Barcelona looked comfortable for large parts of the game and finished with 68% of possession as Man United struggled to trouble their Spanish opponents.

Defender, Ashley Young had a display to forget as the right-back who played as a right-sided centre-back in a back three struggled to hold onto possession.

Fans took to Twitter to lambast the England international calling his performance one of the worst ever in the Champions League.
