Gary Neville believes Manchester United are ‘sleepwalking’ into a top-four race after the Red Devils stumbled to a third consecutive goalless draw at Crystal Palace.
Liverpool host Chelsea on Thursday night and the two clubs will want to close the gap on their out of form rivals.
Neville said on Sky Sports: “They (United) looked lethargic and well off it, their body language looked really drained.
“I thought they would cement second place by picking up points at places like Crystal Palace. Now Liverpool and Chelsea will think they are in with a right chance.
“It wasn’t a good night for United. It doesn’t matter who’s in charge, you can’t be boring and that was boring tonight.
“They are sleepwalking in games. They are going to end up in a top-four race if they are not careful.”
Solskjaer couldn’t hide his disappointment after his side failed to capitalise on their opportunity to cement their spot in second in the top-flight standings.
He told Sky Sports: “It’s disappointing. We were just a little bit off. If you’re not spot on you’re not going to win games.
“Sometimes it’s human nature, sometimes you don’t work at your best. Today we didn’t. It’s been a long season but everyone has the same season.
“We kept giving the ball away. There were times in the first half we built some pressure, had some half-decent chances but we kept giving it away. Then you don’t build momentum and that’s the game you get.”
