Manchester United legend Gary Neville has dismissed suggestions that Cristiano Ronaldo should be left out for some matches.

According to Neville, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s switch to 3-4-1-2 suits Ronaldo who ‘looked like a little boy against Liverpool’ last weekend.

Neville said on Sky Sports: “If you have someone like Ronaldo in the dressing room you have to get him in the team.

“Leaving Sancho, Greenwood and Rashford on the bench is not the plan. He’s played 4-2-3-1 the last seven matches, but the change in system did suit Ronaldo. Seeing him on his own up front against Liverpool, he looked like a little boy.”
