A number of Manchester United players are unhappy, and feel deceived by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, after he assured them of more game time this season, reports claim.

Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard, Dean Henderson, Eric Bailly and Donny van de Beek are amongst the diagruntled players, who have found game time in short supply, after the gaffer’s promise things would improve before the resumption of the current campaign.

Henderson is back to playing second fiddle to David De Gea, who seems to have found his form again, after struggling last term.

Jesse Lingard is also back to sitting on the bench again, despite impressing while on loan at West Ham last season. The United midfielder has scored twice from the bench, and has made just one start so far this term.

Van de Beek was close to joining Everton last summer, but the move was blocked by Solskjaer, with an assurance that there would be some improvement.

According to ESPN, there’s a general feeling of unhappiness among some of these players, and some are already considering leaving, including Van de Beek and Lingard.
