Bastian Schweinsteiger treated like a dog by Santi Cazorla claims Gary Neville

Arsenal v Manchester United - Premier League

Bastian Schweinsteiger was treated like a dog by Santi Cazorla during Manchester United's 3-0 defeat at the hands of Arsenal earlier this month. 

Speaking on Monday Night Football, as per the Mirror, Neville claims that Cazorla was toying with the experienced United midfielder throughout proceedings in north London. 

Schweinsteiger failed to stamp his mark on the game, often being left isolated as the likes of Cazorla, Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez and Co. comfortably retained possession.

Neville certainly wasn't impressed with the United star's performance, as he stated: "Against Arsenal, for some reason, and I don't know why, it was like, has Schweinsteiger gone rogue?

"But the more you watch the clips back, you think it must have been a tactic.

"In this game they got concerned about Cazorla. And Cazorla, he had him on a lead. It was like a man with a ball saying to a dog "come to get it off me, come to get it off me", and as soon as he gets near him, he throws it off to Mertesacker.

"It's like 'Come on, Come on Doggie' He's toying with him, Cazorla."

Bouncing back 

Schweinsteiger and his teammates returned to form in style with an emphatic victory over Everton at Goodison Park this past weekend. 

The Red Devils secured a fine 3-0 win on Merseyside, with the trio of Morgan Schneiderlin, Ander Herrera and Wayne Rooney netting for Louis van Gaal's side. 

The duo of Schweinsteiger and Schneiderlin put in a far more disciplined performance against the Toffees while Herrera produced a wonderful display further up the pitch.

It's safe to say that Schweinsteiger's performance against the Gunners was a one off. The ex-Bayern Munich star, who has featured in every United game so far this term, has more often than not been a consistent figure in the middle of the park.
