‘Man United were dreadful, they were really poor,’ Shearer told Amazon Prime.
‘There was a lot of bad attitudes in the game. It didn’t look to me like a happy camp. He tried to change it at half-time and they got the goal, but their performance didn’t really improve.
‘I think this is a huge game for United because already the question marks are there for the manager. They’ve already got one manager sacked.
