Manchester United legend Gary Neville has ripped into the players, particularly Paul Pogba, after their failure to beat Wolves despite winning a penalty.
The sensational Frenchman was involved in a superb piece of play that saw him win the penalty in the first place but fans were quickly confused as to why Marcus Rashford wasn’t the one taking the shot.
After all, the young Englishman has a fantastic record from the penalty spot whereas Pogba’s has been rather mixed of late.
Against Chelsea Rashford took the penalty superbly well and United went on their way to thrash their opponents 4-0.
Had the penalty been converted against Wolves as well, perhaps Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men would’ve won comfortably once again.
G Neville: “There wasn't a leader out there. Something wasn't right. They couldn't make a decision between them. Initially, I was fuming with Pogba. But when I looked at last week's penalty with Chelsea, it was weird." #mufc [Sky]

Neville’s confusion over the inconsistency isn’t a surprise given how the penalty effectively costed Manchester United the match.
However, the fixture should be put into context with it being a difficult away match against a well organised defensive team.
Fans are more furious with the missed opportunities than the result itself which is why there’s a general feeling that United lost the match rather than drew it.
Up next is an uncertain, wounded Crystal Palace side which should see Solskjaer’s men pick up all three points.
