Gary Neville has branded Manchester United’s performances in the Premier League this season as “unacceptable”.

The Red Devils have struggled to produce consistent form in the top flight this term and are currently outside the top four as the race for Champions League qualification reaches its conclusion.

Jose Mourinho watched his side slump to a disappointing 2-0 loss to Arsenal in the Premier League on Sunday night to leave their hopes of finishing in the top four severely damaged.

The Portuguese coach is now looking to steer Manchester United into the Champions League next season by winning the Europa League this term.

However, former Manchester United defender Neville has been less than impressed by what he has seen from the Red Devils in the league this season.

Speaking on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football, Neville said: “I thought they should challenge for the title this season so the performance in the league this season is unacceptable.

“Dropping all of those points at home… but it’s his [Mourinho’s] first season and he’s obviously found the squad to not be as good as he thought it was going to be. He deserves another 12 months to get it.”
