Manchester United legend Gary Neville tore into Marouane Fellaini after the midfielder's mistake cost Jose Mourinho's side victory at Goodison Park on Sunday.

United led 1-0 until the dying stages of the game thanks to Zlatan Ibrahimovic's first-half lob.

But the team paid for their inability to kill the game off when Fellaini, who came on as a substitute, clumsily brought down Everton midfielder Idrissa Gueye to concede an 89th-minute penalty scored by Leighton Baines.

"It's just rubbish from Fellaini. It's obvious — as soon as you commit yourself in the box, you're in danger of giving a penalty away. It's garbage from him," Neville told Sky Sports.

"It's nothing to do with the manager. He's made the substitution for the right reason and the player has let him down.

"It is really pathetic from such an experienced player. He's come on to actually see a game out. No composure, and it was obvious what was coming — you could see it a mile off."

United are now nine points off Manchester City, who occupy the fourth and final UEFA Champions League place, and 13 off Chelsea, who currently lead the English Premier League after 14 games.
