Newcastle stormed into a 2-0 lead against Manchester United in the first half

Gary Neville criticised Man United players for their roles in both of the goals

Listen to the latest episode of Mail Sport’s podcast ‘It’s All Kicking Off!’ 

Gary Neville has criticised Manchester United for losing their discipline as the hosts conceded twice in eight minutes to trail Newcastle in the Carabao Cup.

Miguel Almiron gave Newcastle the lead in the 28th minute at Old Trafford to deepen Man United‘s woes.

The midfield turned in at back post following a shift Newcastle counter attack led by full back Tino Livramento.

‘You cant say it hasn’t been coming. Man United have lost their discipline in the last 10 minutes, they have looked anxious and the crowd have been quiet,’ Neville said on Sky Sports.

‘Garnacho gets muscled off it. Livramento goes around Mount like he is not there. Dalot is sleeping, Almiron is not. Can he finish, by goodness he can.’

Lewis Hall doubled Newcastle’s advantage with a fine effort from the edge of the box

Lewis Hall doubled Newcastle’s advantage with the full back producing a superb left footed strike from the edge of the box in the 36th minute.

Neville highlighted the reaction of five Manchester United players who complained to the referee, while Newcastle restarted the match in the build-up to the goal.

The former Man United defender claimed the response had been ‘schoolboy stuff’.

‘It is a beautiful strike by Lewis Hall but look at those five Man United players when they give it away, they are just sleeping, complaining to the referee, whinging.

‘While they are whinging, Newcastle are winning.

‘Dalot gets back to Willock, but it comes back across. Maguire can’t get enough distance on the header and that is a wonderful strike. Such a controlled, smooth volley.

‘As soon as the free kick was given away, the five of them turning around to have a go at the referee while Newcastle were playing, it was like schoolboy stuff, under nines.’

Neville’s criticism was shared by pundits Shay Given and Izzy Christiansen, with the former claiming the response of Man United’s players reflected the negative mood at the club.

‘It feels like the mood in the camp at Man United is one of so much negativity,’ Given said.

‘They are too worried about complaining to the referee about a free kick. Longstaff runs up to it, takes the free kick and before you know it Newcastle are in the final third.

‘Dalot’s defending was questionable but Lewis Hall’s first career goal is a brilliant finish.’

‘Dalot had probably the poorest half I have seen in a long time,’ added Christiansen, after the defending was replaced at half-time by Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
