Gary Neville highlights big Man Utd weakness after sluggish West Ham win

Gary Neville has highlighted one of Manchester United's biggest weaknesses after a sluggish win against West Ham.

The Red Devils made it 13 matches unbeaten under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, going second in the Premier League as a result.

The title might be too far for United, nevertheless, there have been major improvements throughout the season.

Despite getting the win over the Hammers on Sunday night, the Old Trafford side were far from impressive.

And club legend Neville has pinpointed one of his biggest worries for his former side ahead of the rest of the campaign.

He said: "They do struggle to break down teams.

"If you think about how Man City dismantle teams that sit deep against them, Manchester United just aren't capable of that yet.

"It has been something that you can quite obviously see, when they play on the counter attack, even towards the end, they're a lot better.

"They have got to get better at playing against teams that are really sit back in those deep blocks, got 10 men behind the ball.

"That's where the next stage of development for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has got to come from.

"If they don't start doing that better, they won't win this Premier League."
