Subsequently, the star players on the United roster were ‘nowhere to be found on the pitch. Their performances were dismal.

Bruno Fernandes was picked out for the part that he played in United’s sad performance. The young Portuguese international had rejuvenated the Old Trafford side. Furthermore, he was a focal point in pushing them to second place on the EPL points table.

However, Neville feels that Bruno was not at his best in the last few games that the Red Devils have played. In an interview, he said, “Fernandes was sloppy for the first few minutes of the Crystal Palace game. His performance over the last week has been abysmal.”

According to Neville, Fernandes was not the only player at fault in the draw against Crystal Palace. In an interview, he said,  “Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford was afforded many opportunities but did not capitalize on it. But, Gary Cahill stood his ground and dashed the hopes of Greenwood and Rashford.”

Manchester United will play Manchester City on March 7th, 2021. Following which they will face Milan in the Europa League first leg on March 11th, 2021. Therefore, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will face tough couple of days. They will have to work very hard to secure wins against these two sides.
