Gary Neville doesn't blame new signings after Brighton defeat

Manchester United lost 2-1 in their opening game of the season.

The Red Devils kicked off their new campaign with a 2-1 defeat against Brighton at the Old Trafford.

Ten Hag’s new signings Lisandro Martinez and Christian Eriksen started the game.

Martinez paired up with captain Harry Maguire in the defence whereas Eriksen played in a false nine instead of a deeper role.

Club legend Gary Neville believes the new players are not be blamed for the defeat.

He told Daily Mail: “It’s too early to judge new signings. Coming into a very difficult game and a very difficult situation.

“I thought Lisandro Martinez did some really good things but could have done better with the goal. He should have seen the run-off and it’s his goal that one.

“That’s his run but the reality is it’s his first game at Old Trafford in a new team, a struggling team so there’s no reflection on him.

“I don’t look at the manager or the new players here Christian Eriksen or Martinez and think they are the problem at all. They are brand new to it.”
