United suffered a chastening night in the Champions League as they were defeated 3-0 at the Nou Camp.

"The coaching staff will see there's a massive gulf between Europe's best teams and where Manchester United are at". Manchester United need to revamp their squad - there is no doubt about that.

"For me, today showed that they need a defensive midfield player in that position".

"I think it's important when you make a mistake of that nature, in your home country, he's now an experienced player".

Carragher asked Neville whether that crop were better than his former team-mates David Beckham and Ryan Giggs and while he stopped short of saying a definite yes, he revealed that he thinks they're more unsafe in terms of goal threat, saying: "They're the most devastating, when it comes to goalscoring".

Neville also hit out at midfielder Paul Pogba, who struggled under former manager Jose Mourinho before undergoing a transformation with the arrival of Solskjaer.

With a game in hand on Maurizio Sarri's side too, Neville revealed that with a busy schedule coming up in the next two weeks, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should consider resting players for the City game, so that they remain fresh for the crunch top-four clash against Chelsea just four days later.

" I thought he was really poor, rolling his foot over the ball all the time, playing for himself, not popping it off and moving, didn't look interested at times."

"I used to think when a wide player got a chance they wouldn't take it but these guys (Salah, Mane and Sterling) are finishers".
