Chris Sutton has named ten Man United stars who should be “binned” following their defeat against Man City at the Etihad.

The Red Devils were beaten 4-1 by Pep Guardiola’s side on Sunday. United were 2-1 behind at the break as Kevin De Bruyne netted a brace.

Man City toyed with their rivals in the second half as they ran out convincing winners. Riyad Mahrez added to their advantage.

Where might all Man Utd’s players go and for how much?

United are now fifth in the Premier League. Arsenal are a point above them in fourth but they have three games in hand over Ralf Rangnick’s side.

Speaking post-match, Roy Keane suggested that “five or six players should never play for Man Utd again”.

Sutton has gone further with his criticism of United’s players. He thinks “Keane was kind” because as many as ten players should leave the club:

“I might be the first person to ever utter these words but here goes: Roy Keane was kind,” Sutton said (via Manchester Evening News).

“He said ‘five or six’ should never play for Manchester United again. I’d say that’s modest.

“United fans want to see their team competing for the Premier League and Champions League. If we’re basing our decisions on who’s good enough to make them an elite club again, then we could hit double figures in terms of who gets binned.

“Their performance at the Etihad was embarrassing. Manchester City are fantastic, but I can’t remember a side having 92 per cent possession as they did after the third goal in their 4-1 win.”

Sutton named Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Alex Telles, Fred, Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard, Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani as the players who should be “binned”.

On Maguire, Sutton added: “Instead of clearing the danger after Foden’s shot was saved, Maguire let the ball run through his legs, not realising Bernardo Silva was storming in for the rebound. I’m surprised that wasn’t highlighted more amid the analysis of De Bruyne’s second goal.

“Maguire’s £80m move to United hasn’t worked out. He’s not the Virgil van Dijk they hoped he was.”

On Ronaldo: “Extraordinary player with an extraordinary ego. I questioned United’s move for Ronaldo, fearing his presence would have a detrimental impact.

“I see this as more of a commercial signing than a smart one in terms of tactics. He’s 37 now and it’s time to move on.”
