Manchester United duo criticised for Nottingham Forest display

Two Manchester United have been slammed after their showing over the weekend.

Manchester United picked up three points when they faced off with Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

However, Man United were far from their best on the day and went 2-0 down inside the opening 10 minutes.

Whilst United were able to come back and win, they could have easily let the game slip away thanks to poor defending.

Following the match, Danny Murphy has hit out at Casemiro and Lisandro Martinez for their displays:

“It’s poor set-up and they find themselves one-nil down,” Murphy said. “This one is lucky how it comes off Boly but Wan-Bissaka is the wrong way, Casemiro doesn’t jump and Dalot loses his man at the back too.

“They had to chase the game but they didn’t defend and they weren’t disciplined. Gibbs-White runs past Martinez and Casemiro, their reactions are really poor and if they were more calm it could be 3-1. They get away with it.

“Eriksen, it’s too easy to beat him and he’s in-behind. Nobody spots the danger and they could be 3-1 down to Forest at home. The only reasons they’re not is because the shot hits his man.

“They’re now winning the game and Casemiro isn’t disciplined, he dives in. Martinez gets the wrong side and the goalkeeper saves him.

“Although there were some positives, they are too easy to play against and some of it is so easy to fix.”
