The Red Devils were beaten 1-0 by Aston Villa at Old Trafford on Saturday to continue a disappointing series of results, having also exited the Carabao Cup at home against West Ham and lost to Young Boys in the Champions League.

Neville appeared to be particularly concerned by the nature of the defeat to Villa, describing United as an ‘odd bunch’ who rely on individual moments over a cohesive, ingrained style of play – unlike their title rivals.

They don’t play well enough as a team to win this league,’ he said on his Sky Sports podcast.

‘You need patterns of play, you need a way of playing, and at this moment in time I still see a group of individuals playing in moments.’

But Solskjaer insists he does have a gameplan and style of play that is capable of winning silverware, though he did concede that his players were guilty of trying to play too quickly against Villa.

Neville also stated that United’s significant spending this summer means Solskjaer is under pressure to deliver a trophy.

‘He’s always got loads to say, Gary. I’m used to Gary. He’s always said a lot when I sat next to him in dressing room.

Manchester United will be looking to avenge the Europa lost when they host Villarreal at Old Trafford on Wednesday.
