Manchester United's recent form went from bad to worse on Sunday as they drew 1-1 away to Huddersfield - who have already been relegated from the Premier League.

Scott McTominay opened the scoring for the Red Devils, but a mistake from Luke Shaw allowed Isaac Mbenza to finish under David de Gea in the 60th minute.

It was a pretty embarrassing performance from United considering how important victory was for their chances of qualifying for the Champions League.

Drawing to Huddersfield in their second-to-last game meant they can longer catch the top four and will be playing in the Europa League next season.

Not exactly what United chiefs had hoped for when they decided to make Ole Gunnar Solskjaer permanent manager back in March.

A huge summer awaits the 20-time league champions, who need a complete overhaul of their struggling squad.

Even Solskjaer has reportedly come to terms with the fact most of his players simply aren't good enough to play for United.

One man who's desperate to see change is former right-back Gary Neville, who described United's players as a "despondent group of people" on commentary after Huddersfield made it 1-1.

He ranted: "Watch this Huddersfield team, they haven't got the quality. I actually like them a lot more than the ones in the Red shirts. At least you can identify with them.

"There's nothing about this United team I like at all. Just awful. Look at them. They're a despondent group of people."

And when the camera panned to Solskjaer on the bench, Neville added: "He's smiling. He's smiling at them (the players), they're that bad.

"The away supporters will never stop singing, but this group of players have drained the energy out of them."

No beating around the bush from Neville, whose feelings towards United's current group of players probably resonates with every single one of the club's fans.
