Former Manchester United star Phil Neville was not pleased with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team selection against Chelsea in the FA Cup.

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists he doesn’t need a new centre-half after victory at Brighton.

United have conceded five goals in their first two Premier League games this season.

However, Solskjaer ruled out the possibility of adding a centre-back to his ranks during the transfer window while speaking at a media conference after United’s win at Brighton.

He said: “We’ve got many defenders here and I put Eric (Bailly) on to bolster the defence, following the runs of Trossard and Maupay.


“For me, we’ve got enough good centre-backs here at the moment.

“When you concede chances and concede goals, there are two different things you can look at – it’s either the team shape, or are there any individual mistakes.

“We’re not in our best shape of form, our shape isn’t there, we’re not sharp enough to stop crosses or follow the runs.

“We’re a little bit behind, that’s more structural mistakes than individual mistakes. I thought Victor (Lindelof) did well today.”
