Alan Shearer has focused his blame for Manchester United’s loss against Newcastle on two of Erik ten Hag’s players.

Manchester United‘s 1-0 loss against Newcastle on Saturday evening has dropped them to seventh in the Premier League table, now sitting five points off the top four spots.

It was a fixture that put a dent in Erik ten Hag‘s good run in the competition, with many blaming Marcus Rashford for parts of the poor display due to an apparent lack of effort.

Former Premier League striker and Newcastle legend Alan Shearer has also focused his blame on both Rashford and another, looking towards Alejandro Garnacho as another man whose effort was sub-par on the night.

“They [Newcastle] absolutely battered Man United in wide areas,” Shearer told BBC Match of the Day. “Trippier and Livramento were sensational against Wan-Bissaka and Dalot.

“In their defence, they got no help whatsoever from Garnacho and 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 (more) goals.

“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.”
