Former Red Devils defender warns Solskjaer about his team’s lack of creativity.

Manchester United

were held to a goalless draw in their Wednesday Premier League match against

Crystal Palace

.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

’s team have finished their last three games with 0-0 results as their gap with

Manchester City

at the top of the league table has increased to 14 points. In a post-match interview after their draw against the Eagles, Gary Neville has criticized the Red Devils' performance.

Neville told

Sky Sports

:

“Manchester United have got to find something from somewhere.

“There was no urgency at the end of the game. You expected United to be throwing everything at it. You expected maybe some of the young lads to come on and do something to try and win the game, take a chance, take a risk, but there was almost a fear that maybe Crystal Palace would go and counter-attack.

“It wasn't a good night for United. You can't have too many performances like that.

“I always said in the past when Louis van Gaal or Jose Mourinho were the manager, you can win, you can lose, you can draw, but you can't be boring and that was boring, watching that.

“They let games drift for large periods. That's happened in the big games where there's been that lack of urgency and belief but now it's starting to come against the teams at the bottom of the league.

“They are sleepwalking in games. They are thinking that they are okay, they will get a goal, because many times this season they have played badly in first halves of matches and then gone and won the second half. But now it's not happening for them.

“You've got to have performances. You will get results sometimes when you play badly, but eventually it will catch you out. You need performances.”

Manchester United will play against Manchester City in their next Premier League match on Sunday before facing

Milan

in the Europa League three days later.
