Gary Neville: Why Manchester United can’t win the Premier League

Manchester United legend Gary Neville believes the clubs lacks the consistency needed to mount a serious title challenge following our victory over Everton on Saturday.

We secured a morale-boosting with a 3-1 win at Goodison Park at the weekend after consecutive defeats against Arsenal and Istanbul Basaksehir

The win over Carlo Ancelotti’s side means we have collected just 10 points from our opening seven Premier League games, and former United defender Neville feels we can not win the Premier League without consistency in our game.

“I was glued to the telly in the morning just thinking about the game, thinking what had happened the previous week, you see the reports leading up to the game and you’re just thinking you need a performance here, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the club needs a performance, those players needed a performance, they went one behind and you’re thinking, ‘here we go’, but actually [Anthony] Martial had a chance before 1-0 and United deservedly came out on top in the end,” Neville told Sky Sports.

“They’re just so inconsistent, if you think about over the last couple of weeks, the performance against RB Leipzig, the performance against Paris Saint-Germain, the performance at Goodison Park, then in between that the performance in Turkey and against Arsenal.

“Just up and down, they’ve got to get rid of that because it’s a thing that will always put them under pressure as players and it will always put the manager under pressure.

“You need consistency. That’s what, ultimately champions need to be and at this moment they are inconsistent.”
