Gary Neville slammed Mykhailo Mudryk’s performance in Chelsea’s 4-1 defeat to Manchester United and claimed the winger looked ‘rigid and stiff’ at Old Trafford.

Mudryk has struggled to make an impact for Chelsea since his £88.5 million from Shakhtar Donetsk in the January transfer window.

“Oh my goodness, how many times have we seen that in the first half? So rigid and stiff on the ball,” Neville said of Mudryk during his commentary for Sky Sports.

“It’s so heavy that touch its unbelievable. That is just confidence, or a lack of it.

“It’s like he hasn’t got a picture of what he’s going to do with it before he receives it. It’s all a bit fast in his head.”
