Gary Neville slams Manchester United duo after Sheffield draw

Gary Neville has slammed Manchester United players Andreas Pereira and Fred after the club's 3 - 3 draw with Sheffield United. The Brazilian duo started for United's Premier League clash at Bramall Lane as the Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was forced to change the formation of the players in the absence of injured Scott McTominay and Paul Pogba. The central midfield failed to have a huge importance for the game, which wasn't a surprise for Neville. He believes the duo would be more fortunate if played for a mid-table club. The former Manchester United defender told Sky Sports: "I’m disappointed generally with their away performances this season, their approach to the games. I think that defensively the system didn’t work in terms of a back five in the first half, one team knew how to play it and the other team didn’t. The midfield I’m not going to go into because I said yesterday that’s not a midfield, Fred and Pereira is not a midfield for a mid-table club, let alone one of the top-spending clubs in Europe, they have got injury problems in midfield to be fair." When focusing on United's midfield present state, Neville added: "Mata is on the bench, Pogba is injured, Matic is looking to get away, Young is on the bench yesterday. The experienced players at the club at this moment in time are in turmoil a little bit. Essentially, the young lads are all out there on the pitch together. There is one more big thing, they don’t know how to approach a Premier League away game, they don’t understand that it’s different playing at Old Trafford than it is away from home and they haven’t got the experience or maturity."
