Alan Shearer takes aim at Man Utd stars as he notices same issue as Gary Neville
Alan Shearer agrees with Gary Neville about the poor body language of Manchester United players after their 1-0 win over Aston Villa in the FA Cup.
Prevailing through Scott McTominay's eighth-minute header, the Red Devils were second-best for most of the contest and can count themselves lucky to have progressed to the fourth round of the competition.
Twice Ralf Rangnick's side were reliant on offside decisions to keep their clean sheet intact with Danny Ings' equaliser cruelly denied due to an alleged foul by Jacob Ramsey.
And despite losing just one match since the German's appointment, the Red Devils have flattered to deceive in his short stint as interim boss.
Ex-captain Neville has openly criticised his former side for their poor body language, describing the current crop of Man Utd players as "a bunch of whinge-bags" in his scathing analysis on Sky Sports.
"Watch them on that pitch. I’ll not go into names, but they’re whinging at each other, arms up in the air complaining about everything,” Neville said as Man United trailed 1-0 to relegation-threatened Newcastle.
“Honestly, they were absolutely shocking in that first half. They got the last manager the sack. Ralf Rangnick is not going to get the sack.”

All-time Premier League top scorer Alan Shearer is now in agreement with Neville after watching the Red Devils underwhelm on Monday evening.
The former Blackburn and Newcastle forward took particular issue with Marcus Rashford who "looks very flat".
He said: “When you look at the body language of some of those players. I don’t want to single out Marcus Rashford because he’s low on confidence.
“But I just think everything looks a huge effort for him at this moment in time there’s no spark there, he looks very flat.

“He started off the first five or 10 minutes and I thought here we go he’s back to his best by giving Man United a little bit of width and had a little bit of spark about him.
“But there was once in the first half and again in the second half when [Mason] Greenwood cuts in from the right-hand side and he just stands still.
“Man United all I can say is they’re through. It wasn’t a good performance, poor again, second-best for large parts of that second half.”
