Gary Neville: The good thing about Man United’s biggest problem
Gary Neville believes Manchester United's problem at Old Trafford is easily identifiable
Gary Neville believes it is good that Manchester United’s poor form at Old Trafford is easily identifiable ahead of their second season under Jose Mourinho.
The Red Devils dropped yet more points in front of their home supporters at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon after Manchester United were held to a 1-1 draw with relegation candidate Swansea City.
Manchester United’s record goal-scorer Wayne Rooney broke the deadlock from the penalty spot after Marcus Rashford won a fortuitous spot-kick in the first half at the Theatre of Dreams.
The 20-time English champions have drawn 14 of their 34 games in the Premier League this season to leave Manchester United facing an uphill battle to secure a top-four finish.
Remarkably, 10 of their 14 stalemates have come at Old Trafford as Manchester United dropped points against teams such as Bournemouth, Swansea, Burnley and West Ham United.
Speaking to Sky Sports about Manchester United’s big problem against the smaller clubs at home this season, Neville said:
“It’s an easily identifiable problem. You look at all the points they’ve dropped at home and add them in the games they should have won, you’re easily adding 10-14 points.
“They’d be in a strong position.”
Manchester United are in fifth place and four points behind Liverpool.
