Manchester United dropped points yet again as they played out a goalless draw with Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.

United are second in the league, but their position have become shaky following a decline in results, as Chelsea and Liverpool chase them from behind.

United have drawn 4 out of their last 5 league games, as the gap behind second place continues to reduce.

Manchester United legend Gary Neville was frustrated after their game on Wednesday night, and he believes Chelsea and Liverpool will be thinking that they have a chance to usurp United.

Neville told Sky Sports after the match: “They’re now making it really hard for themselves.

“If you were Liverpool and Chelsea watching this at home, you’d be thinking ‘right we’re in with a right chance’. They look leggy. Manchester United have got to find something from somewhere.

“There was no sort or urgency at the end of the game. You expected United to throw everything at it. Off the bench you expected some of the young lads to come on and do something, take a chance or a risk. But almost a fear that Palace could counter attack.

“They look worn. We know the fans aren’t in the stadium and we know there’s not been a lot of football. But they really did look lethargic tonight and well off it. The body language, they looked really drained.

“I thought progress in the last few weeks had been made in the sense that they would cement that second place by picking three points at places like Crystal Palace.”
