Newly appointed England Women's manager and former Manchester United defender Phil Neville has branded centre-back pairing Phil Jones and Chris Smalling 'a disaster' after Sunday's 1-0 defeat to Newcastle.
The Reds still sit second in the league and admittedly have a strong defensive record this season but this is not the first time the two England men have cone under criticism.
A Matt Ritchie goal was enough to secure Newcastle an important victory and Neville was quick to point out that Smalling and Jones lack decisiveness and are both liabilities becau
''The last two away games. Smalling and Jones have been a disaster.
Neville is not the only one to criticise the pair, with Smalling coming under particular scrutiny by fans on social media.
