Manchester United shoddy, scrappy and scruffy this season says Gary Neville

In a scathing assessment, Gary Neville described Manchester United’s performances this season as “shoddy”, adding that they are “scrappy and scruffy to watch”.

It came after United’s 29-game unbeaten run away from home in the Premier League was brought to a crashing halt at Leicester, with the Foxes coming from behind to win 4-2 at the King Power Stadium.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are winless in their last three league games, with pressure further growing on the manager after an expensive summer of incomings.

“There are issues as their performance are nowhere near good enough,” Neville told Sky Sports. “I said a few weeks ago that the moment where they started to play half-decent teams, they’re going to struggle. Aston Villa, Everton, Villarreal and Leicester are half decent teams.

“The performances have been so shoddy all season in terms of team performances. There’s been some good results and some great individual goals, but the overall performances and the unit in and out of possession have been shoddy.

“It’s scrappy and scruffy to watch. When you play a team with a clear organisation and a methodology, you’re going to get pulled apart and that’s what happened here. They were pulled apart by Villa, pulled apart by Everton and pulled apart by Villarreal.
