Danny Murphy has pinpointed who he thinks Manchester United problem is and also the cause for their recent top-4 fall-offs.
Manchester United left their fans in fear of another poor league finish after they failed to hold on to Daniel James’ late equaliser against Crystal Palace last weekend.
A shaky mistake from David De’ Gea handed Palace the lead in less than 10 minutes of United’s late comeback.
This has led former Liverpool player, Danny Murphy disclosing that Manchester United still have a lot of work to do on their squad before they can return to the top 4.
According to the 42-year-old, David De’ Gea is, of course, a good goalkeeper but seems something is wrong in the house.
The Spanish goal is yet to extend his contract with the Red Devils as he has been considered the most consistent in the United squad despite his late flaws.
“The worrying thing for United, a couple of worrying things, De Gea again,” Danny told talkSPORT.
“He should have saved the winner comfortably, another mistake. It’s happening too often. We know how good he can be but there’s something not right and that is a problem for United.”
Murphy went on to share that De Gea isn’t the only problem at Man United, “And then of course in the middle of the park I’m still not sure that it’s the right balance,” Liverpool legend added.
“I think they need another, and I keep saying it, Michael Carrick, but where do you find a Michael Carrick?

“But that type, someone who can sit in there, Pogba likes to go forward and do his bit, someone who can sit in there.
“McTominay’s a good player but he’s not someone that can dictate the tempo as Carrick did. They’ve never replaced him as far as I’m concerned.”
