'Manchester United a Disconnected Team, Making Basic Errors': Gary Neville Rips Into Red Devils
It was United's third Premier League match in succession where they failed to win as it came after a 1-0 loss to Aston Villa and a 1-1 draw against Everton.
Neville even accused United's footballers of having egos as they failed to click as a unit before labelling them "babies" for behaving like immature kids.
The former England right-back even declared that United players' lack the intensity and the work ethics of Liverpool and Manchester City footballers, who he claimed "work like dogs" to accomplish the desired success.
"United were appalling all the way through", Neville said on Sky Sports.
"In the second half there was a massive, massive change - Leicester looked like they could score with every single attack".
How much more patience will Manchester United have with Ole Gunnar Solskjær? 🤔@Carra23 and @GNev2 discuss how much pressure the Man Utd boss is under and why now is not the time to panic— Sky Sports Premier League (@SkySportsPL) October 18, 2021

"United are just baggy, there's space everywhere and they're a pretty awful team to watch when they're baggy. They must think they're better than they are. You end up with two teams: the front five, the egos, the great players, and the back five", he added.
"You've got individual errors, but also a disconnected team. This United team are also really poor in reacting to goals. They're like babies. If they score, they puff their chests out. Really basic errors".
According to him, United is looking like a disconnected team at the moment and its players are making basic errors on the field.
In a way, the situation is becoming extremely difficult for Solskjaer, considering he has so far been unable to get the best out of his players.
"City and Liverpool's players work like dogs, and they're the best players in the world. Why is it that we accept United's players won't work as hard as them? Ole [Gunnar Solskjaer] has to get the best out of them. If he doesn't, he's going to have a massive problem at the end of the season", Neville continued.
"What Ole has to somehow prove is that he can get top players to work hard. United's forward players are not organised, they need to put a shift in", he concluded.
After hogging all the limelight for their acquisition of Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus in August, which resulted in an impressive start for the Old Trafford-based team, United has subsequently lost the plot in the past month and a half.
After their latest defeat, they are now languishing in sixth place in the Premier League standings with 14 points and are five points behind table toppers Chelsea who have 19 points.
