Gary Neville has criticised Romelu Lukaku for having ‘no impact’ on the match against Liverpool.
Neville regularly criticised Lukaku during the 0-0 draw, calling him lazy and saying he should have been sent off.
Lukaku was left frustrated and isolated as Manchester United sat back and failed to attack, but Neville believes that Lukaku was to blame for that too.
“We expected more from United. Second half they sat back and there was no quality and I was disappointed with Romelu Lukaku. But it’s a tough place to come.
“Lukaku looked distracted and was frustrated in the first half. He had no impact on the game and had no influence and it’s the big matches that will define him.”
“With Rashford and Lingard on I would have expected one or two moments to win the match. That was disappointing, but Jose’s point of view will be ‘it’s a tough place to come and let’s fight out battles further down the line’.”
Get the feeling Neville isn’t a fan?
Don't know who should be more embarrassed. United for playing so badly, or Liverpool for not making the most of it. Mad that Lukaku didn't get a card for that first challenge, but no way he meant that Lovren thing. Weird reaction from Neville.
