Ex-Arsenal defender, Martin Keown, has criticised Manchester United midfielder, Fred following the Red Devils’ 1-0 defeat to Newcastle United in the Premier League on Sunday.

Keown said that Fred is ‘becoming a joke’ at the club, adding that the Brazilian international lacked creativity in the midfield against Newcastle.

Matty Longstaff scored the only goal of the encounter in the second-half to give Newcastle all three points against Solskjaer’s men at St James’ Park.

“They’re so inept in possession. Fred, it’s almost becoming a joke when he gets the ball. I know it’s good closing down but you’ve got to be able to control it and pass,” said Keown on Match of the Day.

“If that’s the central midfield then there’s not going to be anything created.

“They started playing balls long into [Marcus] Rashford and I feel sorry for him because he’s surviving on scraps. But he should do better.

“Look at his body language… I think he’s starting to despair with what’s around him.”

Keown added: “You start to look at where the system is… where’s the intensity? I think the belief is ebbing away and this could be the beginning of the end for this manager.
