The Red Devils were beaten 1-0 at home by bottom of the table West Brom on Sunday, a result that confirmed Manchester City as 2017-18 Premier League champions.

James McClean of West Bromwich Albion and Ashley Young of Manchester United during the Premier League match between Manchester United and West Bromwich Albion at Old Trafford on April 15, 2018 in Manchester, England.

He told Sky Sports: "Today they didn't show what we expected, the energy going forward, that burst or sprint".

Vidic played for eight-and-a-half years at United, winning five league titles and the Champions League during his time at Old Trafford under Sir Alex Ferguson. "It was too slow, which was disappointing", he said.

"I think there is a lack of communication, they are watching the ball and not reacting".

They have a good team, they have good players, but sometimes I think the players. you have to show desire, you have to show energy, you have to run more than other teams.

"That's the key if they want to challenge for the title because I think in the end, they will score 70 goals a season but they will concede 40".

"I don't think that will happen - maybe it's my Arsenal side coming out - but he rested some good players today and ended up losing the game".

[At Manchester United], it's not acceptable to draw or lose a match, you always have a high expectation - we won the Champions League, the Premier League title. we didn't celebrate, we won the Champions League and we didn't celebrate.

'United need a good spirit ahead of the Tottenham (FA Cup semi-final) match, an important match.

It seems like in this situation, it is definitely organisation, and I can't say a lack of desire because I saw them in the first 20 minutes and they were really attacking and aggressive. I think the Man United players know every game is important and they have to win. [You get] two hours to celebrate, go on holiday and the manager is thinking about the next season.
