EPL: Three Man United stars blamed for 2-2 draw against Aston Villa

ENGLAND – Former Tottenham midfielder, Jermaine Jenas, has blamed three Manchester United stars, Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial following the Red Devils’ 2-2 draw against Aston Villa in the Premier League on Sunday.


According to Jenas, Rashford, Lingard and Martial were ‘sloppy’ against Aston Villa and was nowhere near the ‘six-yard box’ of the visitors, adding that the trio lacked movement during the encounter.

Goals from Jack Grealish, Victor Lindelof, Tyrone Mings and Tom Heaton (OG) ensured both teams played a 2-2 draw at Old Trafford.

“What worried me today was the complete lack of movement in their team, everyone was just stale and stuck in their positions,” Jenas said on Match of the Day.

“They were really sloppy in that final third. They have to find a way to get themselves in that six-yard box because it is happening too often. Rashford was not even looking at the game until it is too late.

“You know what Dan James will do, get in that six-yard box. You have the three guys you want to score goals – Rashford, Lingard and Martial – nowhere near it, not even close.

“Manchester United have not even played well today and they have still created all these opportunities where people aren’t even getting close.

“It is a little bit embarrassing. You have a manager on the sidelines who would probably have scored a hat-trick today in what was probably one of the worst performances he has seen from United.

“It was just stale and there was no direction to what they were doing today.”

Man United will take on Tottenham Hotspur in their next Premier League fixture on Wednesday.
