Neville pointed out that with the experience in the Everton back four there should have been more cohesion against Leicester.
“Those experienced players at the back disappoint me,” he said on Monday Night Football.
“I think they should take responsibility. They don’t. They shy away from responsibility.
“It’s easy to point at the coach of the manager but you’re not telling me that David Unsworth, in the ten days he’s had with them, ‘by the way I want you to leave big gaps between the full back and the centre backs.’
“They should know that, they’ve played the game. How many games have they played now? Baines? Jagielka? Williams? They’ve played thousands of games.
“Close your spaces! It’s ridiculous.
“And we sit here and he’s getting killed here David Unsworth. He’s a young manager who’s been in the job ten days, doing the club a favour with respect. He’s come up, he’s in a good job bringing young players up through the reserve team, and we’re killing him because he’s lost a couple of games.
“Those players there, they want shooting for that.
“But we sit here and we criticise managers, and he’s inexperienced in Premier League terms but is he at fault for that? No he’s not.”
