Newcastle United captain Jamaal Lascelles has criticised the performances of Phil Jones and Chris Smalling by claiming that the two Manchester United defenders ‘didn’t know what to do with the ball’.
Jose Mourinho‘s side are now 16 points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City after suffering a 1-0 defeat at St James Park on Sunday. United failed to take their chances with Anthony Martial missing three excellent opportunities, but Lascelles believes the visitors’ problems stemmed from defence.
‘First-half, they were making a lot of mistakes, giving the ball away,’ said Lascelles.
