Gary Neville has stated that Manchester United have more problems than solutions at the moment - and was not happy with one transfer decision.

It comes in the wake of the club's shoddy defeat to Arsenal at Old Trafford after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang netted from the penalty spot.

That was the only goal of the game but in truth, United never looked too threatening.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer fielded a diamond in midfield, which worked against RB Leipzig after beating them 5-0.

But it seemed to work in Arsenal's favour on Sunday, who were more than happy to deal with the Red Devils in the middle of the park.

The result was a lack of width and Neville insisted United messed up by not signing Jadon Sancho in the transfer window.

"There are more problems than solutions," Neville told Sky Sports.

"You have six midfield players at the club - Nemanja Matic, Fred, Scott McTominay, Bruno Fernandes, Donny van de Beek and Paul Pogba.

"And you've somehow got to get them into a system, which is forcing Ole to play a diamond.

"I think there was an element today of him thinking he could just put four players in that diamond and it would work after what happened in midweek.

"But McTominay on the right-hand side wasn't working after five minutes.

"You have to be comfortable moving out into that wide area; [Aaron] Wan-Bissaka's already a bit awkward on the ball at right-back.

"So you need someone to balance it and the balance on the right is a real problem for United.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has come under pressure

"When [Mason] Greenwood went off it was even worse.

"They wanted Jadon Sancho obviously to play on that side and it looks like a real bad error in not getting that position recruited."

United sit 15th in the Premier League after six games following a run of form that has left them with seven points.
