Ex-Man City winger Sinclair calls on points deduction for Man Utd

Former Manchester City winger Trevor Sinclair has called on Manchester United to be deducted points for their line-up last night.

Against Leicester City, United were beaten 2-1 with the likes of Amad Diallo, Anthony Elanga and Brandon Williams starting and victory for the Foxes has seen them take control in the top four race - to the annoyance of West Ham and Liverpool.

"Without being disrespectful to the players that played tonight, they made ten changes, this is their 'B' team," Sinclair told talkSPORT.

"I think that's disrespectful and it takes away from the top four race.

"The teams that are going to suffer from Man United's lack of due diligence, the ones who could miss out on the top four, are Chelsea possibly, Liverpool, West Ham and Tottenham.

"I think there needs to be a punishment for Man United. Three points isn't enough because that doesn't affect anything.

"I honestly feel the way they put out this team, the way they didn't safeguard their stadium, I think a six-point deduction should be given to Manchester United."
