Shearer: Man Utd full of eggs

Newcastle legend Alan Shearer slammed Manchester United after their defeat at St James' Park.

United were beaten 1-0 at Newcastle on Saturday.

On Match of the Day, Shearer said: “They [Newcastle] absolutely battered Man United in wide areas.

“[Kieran] Trippier and [Tino] Livramento were sensational against [Aaron] Wan-Bissaka and [Diogo] Dalot.

“In their defence, they got no help whatsoever from [Alejandro] Garnacho and [Marcus] Rashford. Rashford didn't look at it at all - didn't look interested.

“It happened so many times. Newcastle created so many chances and they should have had many goals."

Shearer also said: “For me, there are too many bad eggs in that Man United team. Too many bad attitudes.

“It's alright when things are going well for you, you can get your feet on the ball, play and pick your head up when things are nice and rosy.

“When it's not going for you, when you're a bit tired and you've got to roll your sleeves up, there's not enough characters in that team."
