Neville: Premier League the focus for Man Utd

Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville believes his old club have to concentrate on the Premier League and not the Champions League now, Sky Sports has reported.

United lost 2-0 to Olympiakos and although Neville feels United could overturn the score, with a league game against Liverpool on the horizon, the England coach and Sky Sports pundit believes that game is the priority.

“If you were say to me 'which game are they more likely to win 4-0 or 3-0?' it would be Olympiakos,” Neville said.

“That's the game. Even just to win the match, it would be the easiest of the four. West Ham on the Saturday will be tough and City and Liverpool go without saying.

“I disagree it's the game with the most pressure. Manchester United fans locally probably don't think they are going to go through. What Manchester United fans don't want on Sunday or a week on Tuesday is embarrassment.

“For me, the danger games for [David] Moyes and United are the two derby games against Liverpool and City. The Olympiakos game of course has a pressure to it, but I think they will win that match.”

United are currently sixth in the league table, level on points with Moyes’ old club Everton but the defending champions have played a game more than the Toffees. The sides meet at Goodison Park on April 20.
