Gary Neville criticised Manchester United for their lacklustre performance after they were held to a goalless draw by Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday.

The two local rivals played out a goalless draw for the second time in two seasons after the same fixture ended up 0-0 last season too.

Manchester United’s best chance of the game fell to Romelu Lukaku in the first half, when the Belgian striker’s effort was saved by Simon Mignolet.

However, Jose Mourinho’s men failed to really get going at Anfield and struggled to break Liverpool down on Merseyside.

And former Manchester United defender Neville was not particularly impressed by what he saw from the Red Devils at Anfield on Saturday lunchtime.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Neville said: “It’s a tough place to play, Anfield, but United’s quality on the ball was woeful.

“So many unforced errors and so many mistakes on the ball. They were fairly resolute, as you’d expect, but the quality was not very good.”

Manchester United will now look to return to winning ways when they get back to Champions League action on Wednesday night with a trip to Portugal to take on Benfica.

The Red Devils are currently in second place in the Premier League table and two points behind leaders Manchester City as the race for the title hots up.

Manchester United are back in Premier League action next weekend with a trip to Huddersfield on Saturday afternoon.
