With the score line still at 0-0, Carragher pointed out FOUR mistakes that Man Utd had made at the beginning of the second half.

In the clip he points out how the Utd defenders had their back to the ball as goalkeeper Andre Onana was looking for a pass.

Onana then decides to hit a long ball to the edge of the opposition box where Diogo Dalot – who was playing left-back – was Utd’s furthest attacker.

As the long ball went forward, both Christian Eriksen and Kobbie Mainoo both left Lyle Foster in acres of space.

And this is all while Erik ten Hag and assistant coach Steve McClaren are still walking towards their bench, following half-time.

Carragher said: “This is an unbelievable clip. This is the start of the second half.

“Now again, before he does anything, you just stop it there.

“Normally a top team… you have just called Manchester United – and I get that – the biggest club in the world.


“Could you imagine Real Madrid, Bayern Munich,  Barcelona, getting the ball at the start of the second half.

“And these players not showing for it, to actually try and play.

“The idea is to go long. It’s not just the goalkeeper doing it.

“So he brings it forward, he goes to go long, and who’s making the run?

“It’s Dalot, your left back, he’s making the run to try to get on the end of a long ball straight from the kick off.

“So what’s the thought process of Eriksen here? Mainoo?

“Who do they think is going to pick up Lyle Foster in this position?

“And if they do go, Harry Maguire has got to go in there and fill the space.

“Ten seconds into the second half and someone is running at your back four again.

“And we just top it there because the Manchester United manager and Steve McClaren.

“Can you imagine just walking out for the start of that second half and the first thing you see is that?

“I mean, he’s seen it all season. But you come out and you think ‘Give us a break lads’.

“But it comes again from just going long, losing the ball, the positions of the players, and then getting counter-attacked on.”

The home side did manage to go 1-0 up with Antony getting on the scoresheet but this was cancelled out after Amdouni put away his penalty to make it 1-1 in the 87th minute.

The result was Man Utd’s sixth draw of the Premier League campaign.

It was also the fifth penalty they had conceded in the last six games.

Following the 4-0 thrashing they faced at Selhurst Park, ten Hag’s men fell further down the table and now sit in eighth.

Carragher continued to criticise the Red Devils and questioned their ability to play at the highest level.

Speaking about Casemiro, the former Liverpool defender said: “I think Casemiro should know himself that he should only have another three games left at the top level.

MLS or Saudi. I’m deadly serious”.

On the other hand, ten Hag continued to support the serial Champions League winner, arguing that: “You can’t put this to one player.

“We should’ve kept fighting like the fans did.

“It’s clear, we underperformed”.

Ten Hag’s men have got Arsenal to play next and if they repeat the same mistakes, they will be punished by a side gunning for the title.

Pundits’ verdict on Ten Hag’s future

Where do the pundits stand on Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United future?

Michael Owen – He has to go

“He cannot, simply cannot, manage this team next season. He’s not good enough.”

Teddy Sheringham – Might stay if he wins Cup but should go

“If United win the FA Cup, he could stay. But, for me, changes are needed and United need to get it done sooner than later.”

Jamie Carragher – Sacked

“I don’t see how Erik ten Hag stays. It’s just performance after performance.”

Gary Neville – Stay if he wins the FA Cup

“To sack a manager who’s won two trophies in his first two seasons at the club I think would be extreme.”

Louis Saha – On the fence

“I don’t see it as clearly but they need changes from the players but they need changes from him as well.”

Alan Shearer – Sacked

“I believe the future of the Man Utd manager is already determined. Even if they win the FA Cup I think he’s gone.”
