Paul Merson believes Manchester United have to be braver following the 3-1 defeat at Arsenal.
Merson told Sky Sports: “Manchester United go away to draw games. They try not to lose a match before they try to win it.
“I don’t understand. If teams are scoring goals then you’ve got to have a go.
“I think the manager’s got to be braver. He’s got the players to be braver. It’s too negative – counter-attacking football. I do worry for Man Utd.
“The Sir Alex Ferguson days are long gone. They’re as far away from winning the league as you’ll ever see. I know everyone’s a long way off Manchester City but they’re a million miles off.
“You forget they’re one of the biggest teams in the world. Man Utd can’t even stump up £7m for Marc Cucurella. They’re taking a player [Sergio Reguilon] that can’t even play for Tottenham.
“Rasmus Hojlund looked good – a right handful. But that was for 20 minutes. I saw Mykhailo Mudryk for 20 minutes at Liverpool in January and I haven’t seen him since.”
