Manchester United forward Jesse Lingard and goalkeeper David De Gea have been the subjects of criticisms after their poor performances in the derby defeat to Manchester City on Wednesday.

Second half goals from Bernardo Silva and Leroy Sane put Manchester City back at the top of Premier League table with three games remaining.

The defeat at Old Trafford means Manchester United have now lost seven games out of nine.

Lingard failed to score in the second half after being presented with what appeared to be United’s best chance in the game.

After conceding six goals in two matches, De Gea has come under criticism on his competence in manning the post.
