Manchester United legend Gary Neville has urged the club to strengthen a key position in the team on the back of the humiliating defeat suffered at the hands of Crystal Palace.

Gary Neville talked about Manchester United and what they need to do in the transfer window on Sky Sports at the weekend.

The former Red Devils skipper was hugely disappointed as Crystal Palace claimed a second successive away victory at Old Trafford in the Premier League.

He said that Manchester United need to sign a new centre back during this transfer window if they are to achieve their targets for this season.

Gary Neville urged the club to sign a new centre back to partner skipper Harry Maguire at the heart of the Manchester United defence.

His defensive partner Victor Lindelof was culpable for the three goals scored by Crystal Palace in what was the opening game of the season for Manchester United.

Crystal Palace had beaten Manchester United 2-1 at the same venue and they repeated the same outcome of an away win in week two of this season’s Premier League campaign.

Former Manchester United winger Wilfried Zaha was the star of the game as he netted two second-half goals to give Palace a 3-1 win over their hosts.

Fellow winger Andros Townsend had given Palace an early lead before Zaha added a second goal from the penalty spot in the second half.

New Manchester United signing Donny Van De Beek pulled one back to give his team a lifeline before Zaha sealed the points some minutes later.
