Gary Neville says Manchester United need to be more clinical and ruthless under Jose Mourinho next season.

The Red Devils played out a 1-1 draw with Premier League relegation candidates Swansea City at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

Marcus Rashford won a first-half penalty and Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney dispatched his effort from the spot.

However, Iceland international Gylfi Sigurdsson levelled in the second half with a superb free-kick at Old Trafford.

Manchester United are in fifth place in the Premier League table and four points behind Liverpool, who occupy the final Champions League spot.

The Red Devils have drawn 10 of their 18 games at Old Trafford this season, despite going on an impressive 26-game unbeaten run in the Premier League.

Speaking about Manchester United’s big problem under Mourinho, former Red Devils defender Neville told Sky Sports: “When you think of the level they reached against Chelsea a few weeks ago but they struggle against the lesser teams.

“Manchester United need to be more ruthless and clinical. It comes down to that. They need more quality in the final third.”
