‘I still think Manchester United are way off it’ – Dublin

Former Aston Villa and England striker Dion Dublin believes Manchester United are “still playing too slow”, despite their win at Villa Park on Sunday.

Scott McTominay’s late header was enough to secure all three points for the Red Devils, who relied on several fine saves by goalkeeper Andre Onana to preserve their victory.

“I still think United are way off it,” Dublin told BBC Radio 5 Live Breakfast.

“I’d agree with Gary Neville’s assessment that they play in moments. It makes sense if you watch them because you think ‘Oh, here we go United are back, here’s the United you want’ but then five minutes later they are back to playing slow football.

“They are still playing too slowly for me. They have quick players up front and they should be getting the ball to them quicker.

“I think they need to play the United way, getting down the flanks and getting balls into the box for Rasmus Hojlund to get on the end of to score goals.

“Hojlund has been brilliant recently. He has six goals in his last seven games in all competitions now. He works so hard, even when he was having a nightmare and couldn’t score for love nor money. That hard work will always get rewarded.”
