Legendary former ​Manchester United right-back Gary Neville has suggested that the Red Devils should use the January transfer window in order to strengthen the side while also calling for them to be consistent with their performances.

United have turned the tide in their favour with two wins on the trot, putting them at fifth in the table with 24 points from 16 matches, just five points away from the top four spots.

They have six wins and six draws, and four losses to their name, which suggests that the Red Devils haven’t been the most consistent side. Neville highlighted the same while also hoping that his former club do the needful in the January transfer window.

“There's been many times when it's been painful. The players have taken a lot of criticism and rightly so,' Neville said, as per Daily Mail.

“But that's a different level today. I still think there's inconsistency but what it does give you is some hope. It will give them massive confidence but it doesn't change what they need to do in January,” he said.

“McTominay and Fred have done brilliantly but they can't do it week in, week out. Today we have to take our hats off to Man United.

“Today they were outstanding. It was a Man United performance. They showed personality. The big question mark now is they have to be consistent, they can't just do it once every three weeks,” he concluded.
