Manchester United legend Gary Neville has claimed that Jose Mourinho side are currently in conflict with inconsistency at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils flopped to a 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon at Old Trafford and fans reacted by booing the coach and players after the last whistle.
Before the game, former Chelsea boss Mourinho had claimed that his side would finish in top four.
But former United captain Neville thinks they’re not near that level at this moment. And the Sky Sports pundit insists Mourinho doesn’t know which players to pick to solve the problems of the club.
“I didn’t go to Old Trafford but I spoke to people who did,” Neville said.
“There’s a lethargy, in terms of the fans going into the ground, watching the game, players on the pitch.”
“I think Jose gave the right message before the game saying they will end up in the top four.”
“I don’t think it would have been acceptable at the start of the season, and certainly the start of last season, to say the top four is achievable, because he will have wanted to challenge for the title with the money that has been spent. That’s where United need to be.”
“But they’re not near that level at this moment in time, and it typifies really what they are at the moment, which is inconsistent.”
“You can see them go away to Chelsea and nearly win, go away to Watford and Young Boys, and sometimes you can watch them at home against Wolves or Crystal Palace or Valencia, and they’re nowhere near.”
“They’re inconsistent, not just in games, but from half to half within games.”
“It’s not right obviously at this moment in time, the players are not performing anywhere near their level.”
“You’d argue Jose at this moment in time will be scratching his head about which players to put out on the pitch.”
“But he’s made changes before and it hasn’t really made any difference so it’s just about battling and fighting away at it, because it is a struggle. I think that’s the word to describe it.”
The North West side are now seventh in the Premier league table with 14 points behind leaders Man City and seven away from fourth-placed Chelsea.
Mourinho’s men are back into action on Tuesday night where they will host Young Boys in their Champions League clash.
