Gary Neville names five Man Utd men who shouldn’t be ‘in the same team’

Gary Neville claims Man Utd don’t have “enough workhorses” in their team after they were beaten 4-2 by Leicester City on Saturday.

Solskjaer’s side lost away from home in the league for the first time since January 2020 with late goals from Jamie Vardy and substitute Patson Daka piling the pressure on the Norwegian.

The Red Devils have now only won two of their last seven matches in all competitions with Man Utd losing four of those games.

Neville doesn’t think Mason Greenwood, Jadon Sancho, Paul Pogba, Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes should all be playing in the same team.

“Their performances are nowhere near good enough, at the moment when they play half decent teams they’re going to struggle,” Neville told Sky Sports.

“The performances have been shoddy all season, its scrappy and scruffy to watch. So when you play against a team with a methodology you’re going to get pulled apart. They got pulled apart against Villa, pulled apart against Everton, pulled apart by Villarreal.

“We’ve seen a team that’s been picked today with Greenwood, Sancho, Pogba, Ronaldo and Fernandes in that team.

“I wouldn’t want to be a defender in that team. I’d love them as players but not all in the same team. There’s not enough workhorses.

“There’s a reason that Darren Fletcher and John O’Shea and Gary Neville and Nicky Butt and Tom Cleverley got a game alongside those great players at Manchester United, because they are workhorses. The current squad is unbalanced.

“And Manchester United are getting what they deserve and it needs to change. Today was no surprise, the performances weren’t very good even though they weren’t winning”
