Cape Town - Former Manchester United captain Gary Neville has lashed out at the display of his former side after their crushing 3-0 loss at Goodison Park.

Gary Neville labelled the Red Devils "toothless" in defeat, according toteamtalk.com.

"It was a strange game, and you would have thought that both teams had nothing to play for in some ways," Neville said.

"The atmosphere was strange all day long. Usually when Everton are beating Manchester United the place would be bouncing.

"United were toothless, and that is being kind.

"I didn't really see them try and dribble past a player, make any forward runs.

"At times they were not getting enough men in the box and the final pass was poor.

"It is the worst I have seen United play for five or six weeks."

Defeat leaves Louis van Gaal's side in fourth place - two points behind second place Manchester City and seven points ahead of Liverpool, who have a game in hand over their arch-rivals.

Manchester United have four league fixtures left to secure a return to the Champions League.

Manchester United's remaining fixtures:

West Bromwich Albion (home)

Crystal Palace (away)

Arsenal (home)

Hull City (away)
