Former Manchester United star Michael Owen believes that the Red Devils players are getting worse following the defeat suffered at the hands of Newcastle United last weekend.

The ex-Liverpool, Stoke City and Newcastle United striker spoke about his former club to Premier League productions as he said that the Manchester United players are getting worse and that they lack the needed quality to thrive at the top.

According to Michael Owen, Manchester United lack the quality players like the team he played in at the Theatre of Dreams.

The former Three Lions of England striker said that the Manchester United players are not good enough.

As a matter of fact, only three of four players are good enough to play for Manchester United.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under serious pressure after the league loss to Newcastle United at the weekend.

Manchester United lost by a lone goal scored by Premier League debutant Matty Longstaff.

The defeat ensured that Manchester United are in 12th position on the log after recording nine points from the first eight games in the Premier League.

Manchester United are five points adrift of Leicester City who occupy the last position as far as the Champions League places are concerned.
