Manchester United legend Gary Neville says his former club do not have the depth required to challenge Liverpool and Manchester City for the Premier League title next season.

United have enjoyed a successful restart to the Premier League campaign with their top-four fate now very much in their own hands.

But they have stuttered in their last two games, losing against Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley and only drawing against West Ham at Old Trafford on Wednesday evening.

“I don’t think this Manchester United team at this moment can challenge for the title next season,” Neville said on Sky Sports. “It needs more additions and more of the right additions.

“To be fair to Ole, in the time he has been at the club, I think the players he has brought in have improved his team enormously.

“I think that he needs three or four more of those as a minimum before he can even think about getting up into third or second place.

“When I say that Manchester United need a centre-forward, that’s not me saying they should sell Anthony Martial.

“They need a centre-forward because Manchester United should have two or three great centre-forwards.

“They should have two or three great wingers. Not just one in each position.”
