‘He’s got to be brave’ – Redknapp and Neville blame Manchester United player for draw against Everton

Manchester United failed to get all three points as we conceded a late goal in the 3-3 draw against Everton on Saturday night.

United had gone two goals up at the break but Everton equalised through two quick goals from Abdoulaye Doucoure and James Rodriguez.

Scott McTominay put United back in front, before Calvert-Lewin pounced on a late free-kick to clinch a point for Carlo Ancelotti’s side.

Jamie Redknapp and Gary Neville have blamed Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea for two of Everton’s three goals.

De Gea has been blamed for failing to be brave for Everton’s third goal.

Redknapp told Sky Sports: “De Gea as a keeper has got to take everything.

“He’s got to be brave and assess the situation. If he comes out with authority I have no doubt he wins this.

“He was at fault for the first goal and certainly at fault there. But it’s a great bit of forward play by Dominic Calvert-Lewin.”

Neville added: “(United were) defensively poor in moments, like the reverse of what we’ve seen (in previous weeks). They played well but lost through defensive moments.

“De Gea doesn’t come out in line with the ball. You want him to come out and eat the striker, it wasn’t a great night for the keeper or the centre backs either, we’ve known they need a strong centre back pairing.”

The draw meant United failed to take the opportunity to move level on points with Pep Guardiola’s City at the top of the Premier League table.
