Man United suffered their first Premier League defeat of the season against Aston Villa at the weekend, with defender Kortney Hause scoring a header and Bruno Fernandes missing an injury time penalty in a last-gap chance to equalize.


That defeat came after their Carabao Cup exit to West Ham in midweek and a defeat to Young Boys in the Champions League a week before, with a league win over the Hammers sandwiched between them, which ccame thanks to an injury-time penalty save by David De Gea.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ‘s side managed 28 attempts on goal at Old Trafford at the weekend against Aston Vila, but had only four on target and Gary Neville told his podcast with Sky Sports says that a lack of a distinct playing style is a big reason why they are struggling.

“I said it even when we were winning and even when Ronaldo scored, that they don’t play well enough as a team to win this league in my view,” Gary Neville said.

“I think that you have to be a unit in possession and out of possession and when you are only delivering moments, those moments won’t go for you in certain games.

“You need patterns of play, a way of playing and in this moment of time I still see a group of individuals playing in moments – with some patterns and combinations at times – but still a team with some that are pretty new to each other.

“They need to start putting combinations together, patterns of play. I know what’s going to happen when I can see Manchester City building up from the back, I know what’s going to happen at Liverpool. When Manchester United are building up from the back or through midfield, I don’t know what’s coming next sometimes.”

Man United will look to bounce back against Spanish side Villarreal in the Champions League on Wednesday at Old Trafford. - Banner advertising service
