Joey Barton: Current Man United crop are their worst in Premier League
QPR midfielder Joey Barton believes the current Manchester United side in their weakest in Premier League history
Joey Barton believes the current Manchester United side are the club’s weakest collection of players since the Premier League started.
Cardiff City substitute Kim Bo-Kyung scored a last-gasp equaliser to deny the Red Devils three points in Wales after Wayne Rooney and Patrice Evra had put the visitors ahead.
Defending champions United, who are currently sixth, trail Premier League leaders Arsenal by seven points under David Moyes, who replaced Sir Alex Ferguson in the summer.
And former Manchester City midfielder Barton feels United are particularly weak in midfield, with first-team regulars Michael Carrick and Darren Fletcher currently sidelined.
Easily the worst Man United side in Premiership history this. Don't think they have ever been this weak in middle of the park.

Barton was backed up by Doncaster Rovers striker David Cotterrill, who was left unimpressed by United’s failure to secure three points at Cardiff City Stadium.
Worst man united team I've ever seen. Still haven't replaced scholes. Carrick massive miss to united
