Carragher identifies ‘massive problem’ with Man Utd team

Jamie Carragher thinks Manchester United must start to score more than one goal in a game if they are to make the top six in the Premier League.

The Red Devils have made a poor start to the season, winning just two of their opening nine Premier League matches, leaving them 14th in the table.

United haven’t scored more than one goal in a game since they beat Chelsea 4-0 back at the beginning of August and Carragher thinks that needs to change if they are to make the Premier League’s top six.

“I think they’ll get better, of course they will,” Carragher told Sky Sports.

“The position they are in the table, they won’t end up there, they’ll get better, of course, but I don’t think they’ll get top four.

“There’s talk about Leicester getting top six and you’re not quite sure who’s going to miss out, but certainly United are one of the big candidates of the top six to miss out with Leicester going strong.

“Seeing Manchester United in the next couple of games against Norwich and Bournemouth, they’re tests for Manchester United, are they good enough to go and open those teams up?

“They have a massive problem, they cannot score more than one goal in a game, that is a massive problem for them going forward.”
