Manchester United put in quite a good show in the first half of the Manchester derby at the Etihad Stadium.
Manchester United were quite unlucky to be 2-1 down at half-time, and four minutes after the hour mark, Ralf Rangnick wanted to add energy to the team and he also changed tactics as he brought on Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford in place of Anthony Elanga and Paul Pogba. However, the change backfired as United collapsed shortly after, with City scoring the third goal four minutes after the substitution.
Gary Neville slammed Lingard and Rashford, and claimed that the duo killed the game for Manchester United.
“I thought they were better with Pogba and Fernandes up front than they were when Rashford came on,” Neville told Sky Sports.
“I thought they were even worse when Rashford and Lingard came on. I thought they were terrible.”
Neville went on: “What I would say is when he changed it to a more traditional system and brought Rashford on put Lingard out on the right and Sancho to the left, that was worse.”
Gary Neville believes Rashford’s career has hit an all time low, as he can’t get into the team despite Anthony Martial being out on loan at Sevilla and Mason Greenwood suspended, with Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani out injured.
“That’s got to be the ultimate put down for Marcus Rashford today,” Neville said.
“With four other centre forwards he started the season with not here and he still can’t get into the side.
“It tells you where Rashford is at, where Rangnick thinks he is at.”
