Neville sends essential warning to Man Utd over testing interval

Gary Neville thinks Manchester United have to make sure they don’t end up “falling in between everything” during the “testing period” of their season.

The Red Devils have reached the quarter-finals of both the FA Cup and Champions League under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, while they have drastically improved their points total in the Premier League to give them a good chance of a top-four finish.

However, Neville has warned United that they seriously need to concentrate ahead of a run of fixtures that includes league fixtures against Chelsea and Manchester City as well as two Champions League quarter-final legs.

“If you start to look at the period from April 9-28 it’s a real testing period,” Neville said on Sky Sports.

“With the squad that is creaking a little bit. There is a long way to go for this to be a successful season for United.

“They have to be careful not to end up falling in between everything and doing well but not really concentrating on one competition more than the other.

“That’s something which Ole has to concentrate on in this next five or six weeks.”
