Gary Neville furious with Manchester United’s sloppiness against Leicester City

by Leo Nieboer

Gary Neville has expressed his disbelief at Manchester United’s failure to seal a win over Leicester City on Saturday night.

Jose Mourinho’s men went 2-1 up through Juan Mata in the second half and received a litany of chances to kill the game after Daniel Amartey was sent off.

But Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard and Henrikh Mkhitaryan all somehow conspired to spurn golden opportunities and Man United paid the price with a Harry Maguire equaliser seconds from time.

And Neville has taken to social media to express pretty much exactly how we’re all feeling.


This was nothing short of criminal.

United had all the space and time in the world to get just one attack right and claim a crucial three points ahead of a busy fortnight of matches, and they blew it. Completely and utterly blew it.

The decision making on an individual and collective level was shambolic. No player, aside from Juan Mata, looked contained within themselves, assured of what they were going to do in the box. And while Romelu Lukaku, who played well, could have claimed three assists, Rashford and Lingard revealed that they still have some way to go as professionals.

If Bristol City wasn’t a kick up the arse, this needs to have the effect of a rocket.
