Gary Neville has given a damning verdict on the situation at Manchester United, ahead of the club's clash with Liverpool on Sunday.

United fell to a 4-2 defeat against Leicester at the weekend to leave Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side sitting sixth in the Premier League, having not won in each of their last three league games.

The Old Trafford outfit brought in Raphael Varane, Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo this summer, spending more than £100m, which has increased the expectations on Liverpool 's arch rivals.

However, Neville gave an honest assessment of his former side’s failings, as United prepare to host t he Reds later this week.

And he admitted the arrival of Ronaldo and United's summer business can already be questioned.

Nevile said: “I thought that last season there was something building. I think if you asked him privately ‘would you like last season’s squad back?’ I think he probably would go back.

“He has Cristiano Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandes, Edinson Cavani, Paul Pogba and Harry Maguire. Massive characters in the dressing room, Maguire will look at Varane in the dressing room and think 'am I the top dog anymore?'

“You have the dynamic of Cavani sat on the bench who was begged to stay but now has Ronaldo, Rashford and Greenwood in front of him. Sancho has come in for £75m and now he is looking like he is in and out.

“The aura of Ronaldo, Fernandes is walking around with his arms out all the time, Pogba doesn’t know if he is staying or leaving, the emerging captain Maguire thinking how he controls this lot."

Speaking on Monday Night Football, Neville added: “Ole has to solve it this week.

"On Sunday, this lot are an odd bunch, they could out and do Liverpool. They have to get that spirit and dynamic right.”

Having been criticised on social media for not addressing the growing discontent surrounding Solskjaer, Neville admitted that the manager is “100 percent” under pressure.

A last-minute Ronaldo goal against Villarreal has provided Manchester United with their only win in their last five games across all competitions.

Neville argued that changing Solskjaer would do little to change the fact that their title rivals are “three of the best teams in the world”, but said that expectations were growing.

“He should be under massive pressure because he’s been there for two years, 100 per cent,” he said.

“I have Manchester United fans on my social media saying ‘you won’t call him out because he’s your mate’.

“No I won’t. I won’t call out any manager and ask for them to be sacked. He’s my former team-mate and I actually like him a lot, Manchester United have failed with two managers who are perceived as world class.

“I think you give him until the end of the season.

“The pressure is building though, what a collection of players, he has to get them to perform.”
