Manchester United legend Gary Neville thinks his former club are still five players away from being able to challenge for the Premier League title next season. 

United blew the chance of moving to third on the log following a 2-2 draw against Southampton on Monday evening.

Stuart Armstrong opened the scoring for the Soton in the 12th minute but Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial grabbed two quick goals to hand the hosts the lead.

However, in the stoppage time, Michael Obafemi netted the leveler to deny Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men three points.

“Mason Greenwood is playing right-wing, but I think they need a winger,” said the former United captain.

“I think they need a center-forward, I think they need a center-back, they need a proper challenge for David de Gea and then at left-back, they maybe need something if Luke Shaw gets injured.”

Title challenge

“For me, they need four or five players still to challenge, whereby they can get into a position where they can challenge for a title and win in Europe – that’s where the club needs to get to.”
