Former Premier League star, Gabriel Agbolanhor slams two Manchester United players after their defeat at Old Trafford

Former Aston Villa captain, Gabriel Agbonlahor has slammed Manchester United midfielder Casemiro, saying the Brazilian looked like a 45-year-old in Red Devils’ midfield during their 3-1 defeat to Brighton.

Manchester United suffered their third loss in their opening five Premier League games.

Danny Welbeck, Pascal Gross and Joao Pedro scored for the visitors to  seal a deserved win for Brighton at Old Trafford.

Agbonlahor blasted Casemiro and also hit out at Lisandro Martinez.

“Where do I start? Brighton had 659 passes at Old Trafford. More shots on target, more possession – 57 per cent. It was a stroll in the park for Brighton,” Agbonlahor told talkSPORT.

“I am watching the game, at no time did Brighton ever feel like they couldn’t pass it out from the back.

“No matter who was pressing, they found it so easy to get through and create chances. That was like a training ground game, especially the second half.

“Casemiro… Casemiro looked like he was 45 running around that midfield. He had to bring him off on the 65th minute for Hannibal, a young lad, because he was that bad.

“You know what else wound me up today? Let’s see the same energy for Lisandro Martinez and Victor Lindelof.

“Martinez for the Gross goal, he tried to make a block, he got a fake-shot by Gross and scored in the back of the net.

“If that was Harry Maguire, you would not hear the end of it, ‘he’s terrible get him out the side.’

“Harry Maguire must be looking around that changing room now thinking, ‘how am I not getting a chance in this team?’

“Harry Maguire deserves to be in that team.”
