Gary Neville says Jose Mourinho needs players with a killer instinct to lead the Manchester United attack.

The Red Devils were unable to make the breakthrough against a resilient West Bromwich Albion side at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.

Mourinho started with Marcus Rashford up front in the absence of suspended Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic but the England teenager couldn’t find a way past the Baggies.

Manchester United drawn back-to-back Premier League games to lose ground on Liverpool and Manchester City in the race to secure a spot in the top four.

Indeed, the Red Devils have now drawn eight home games in the 2016-17 season in the Premier League and are on course to finish with their worst home record since 1992.

Speaking to Sky Sports News HQ about Manchester United’s struggles under Mourinho at Old Trafford, Neville said:

“They need more quality, more subtlety, more killer instinct in the final third. A positive is that it’s easy to identify what he needs to improve. He needs players who can win matches for him and they’re not doing that.”
