‘Garbage defending’

Former Manchester United full-backs Gary and Phil Neville have slammed the club’s “garbage” defending after Monday’s crushing 4-0 defeat to Chelsea in the Premier League.

They also ripped into United’s high-priced midfield, which included 89 million pounds ($108.89 million) signing Paul Pogba, after N’Golo Kante was able to waltz through them for Chelsea’s fourth goal.

United manager Jose Mourinho blamed “incredible defensive mistakes” for the humiliating defeat on his return to Stamford Bridge, where he won three Premier League titles in two stints in charge.

“For the fourth goal, (Ander) Herrera and Paul Pogba there, I think it’s absolutely scandalous,” Phil Neville was quoted as saying by dailymail.co.uk.
