Gary Neville pinpoints Man United weak link under Jose Mourinho
The Manchester United legend believes Jose Mourinho has a problem to solve at left-back
Gary Neville believes Manchester United’s weak link is left-back following a 4-0 win against Everton at Old Trafford on Sunday.
The Red Devils scored an early opener at Old Trafford thanks to Antonio Valencia’s fourth-minute goal against the Toffees.
Manchester United finished off Everton in the final 10 minutes of the Premier League clash thanks to goals from Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Romelu Lukaku and Anthony Martial.
The 20-time English champions are unbeaten in the Premier League season so far thanks to victories over West Ham, Swansea City, Leicester City and Everton.
Only Stoke City have managed to stop Manchester United in the English top flight after a 2-2 draw at the bet365 Stadium earlier this month.
The Red Devils have kept four clean sheets in five Premier League games so far.
Former Manchester United defender Neville believes Jose Mourinho still has a problem to solve at left-back.
“I think the problem is at left-back, where Ashley Young was put under a lot of pressure by [Tom] Davies and [Cuco] Martina [against Everton],” Neville told the Daily Mail.
“Blind’s played there, Rojo’s played there, Shaw’s played there, Darmian’s played there, they can’t button that one down.”
Luke Shaw was signed in a £27m deal from Southampton in the 2014 summer transfer window.
Manchester United have used Daley Blind, Matteo Darmian, Marcos Rojo and Ashley Young at left-back in recent seasons.
The Red Devils signed Benfica defender Victor Lindelof, Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic and Everton striker Romelu Lukaku in the summer transfer window.
