Gary Neville makes honest admission about Man United after Liverpool draw

Gary Neville admits that Manchester United did not play very well after their 1-1 draw with Liverpool

Gary Neville has admitted that Manchester United struggled to click into gear in the first half of their 1-1 draw with Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

The Merseyside outfit were the better team before the break at Old Trafford as Jose Mourinho’s men were largely outplayed by Jurgen Klopp’s side in the first half.

Liverpool took the lead in the 27th minute when James Milner scored his penalty after Paul Pogba was penalised for handball in the box.

However, Manchester United regrouped after half-time and improved in the second half as Zlatan Ibrahimovic ended up scoring the equaliser for the home side late on.

Neville admitted that Manchester United struggled to have much of an impact in the game in the first half as the two sides ended up settling for a draw at Old Trafford.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Neville said: “I think in the first half, Manchester United were disrupted. The front six were the disappointing players in the first half.

“As reliable and fantastic as Michael Carrick has been in the past two months, the game seemed to pass him by. They were out-thought. I didn’t see anything from Martial, Mkhitaryan, Ibrahimovic in the first half.

“Liverpool disrupted them and did their job. I think Jose Mourinho summed it up. Manchester United didn’t play well.”
