David Seaman has been puzzled by Manchester United after slipping to a draw at home to Southampton on Saturday.
United had taken the lead through Jadon Sancho in the first half, but a Che Adams strike after the break tied the points.
It was a familiar sinking feeling for the Red Devils who were pushed back shortly after the break at Burnley in midweek, leading to a draw.
Former Arsenal goalkeeper Seaman was unimpressed with Ralf Rangnick’s side as he looked back on Sunday morning’s result.
He told Sky Sports News: “I think they were a bit lacking in confidence.
“First of all you see the squad sheet and you think it’s a strong Man United team and when they start you think, ‘Yeah, that’s going to go Man United way’.
“But there’s just a lack of confidence because it’s not like they’re creating a lack of chances.
“You have to think someone is going to get hit by United soon because they’re creating chances.”
A common thread in recent matches has been United’s inability to hold on to a lead.
In their last three matches, Rangnick’s men have been unable to stay ahead.
“What happens here is players are taken out of position,” Seaman said while explaining United’s reluctance to hold on to a win.
“They know that once they score it’s not the end of the game when we (his Arsenal team) knew there was a 90 per cent chance it would be the end of the game. We could defend a lead.
“At the moment it looks like United can’t.
“I find it hard to understand why because they have the players but they’re not firing on all cylinders.”
Many questions have been asked about whether the team listens to Rangnick during practices.
MEN Sports revealed that the players would like Mauricio Pochettino to take over the club at the end of the season.
Seaman said that despite this, he hopes the team still listens to the German coach.
“Well, I hope the players are still listening to Rangnick,” he explained.
“When you get to that situation where you don’t do it for the manager, there’s only one way (you go).
“There’s an air of uncertainty because they don’t know if he’s going to be the manager or not because you would imagine someone else coming in.
“So you can imagine it bothers the players a bit.
“If you compare them to Manchester City, the attitude of United players is totally different.”
Manchester United will return to action on Tuesday night against Brighton and Hove Albion in the Premier League at Old Trafford.
