Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney says his former club are ‘frustrating’ and need to change one thing in order to gain consistency.

The Red Devils beat Luton 2-1 on Sunday to extend their Premier League winning run to four matches.

However, Luton enjoyed more possession and had 20 efforts during the match, while United could have scored four in the second half alone.

Rarely has a Premier League team possessed the ability to reach such high and low levels within the same match.

Paul Scholes described the team as ‘weird’ as they’re the ‘only’ team that could win 5-0 after getting ‘battered’.

And Rooney agrees that the team are ‘frustrating’ but says nothing will change until the mindset of the club changes first.

Asked on the Overlap, sponsored by SkyBet, for his thoughts on United, Rooney said: ‘Frustrating. I think there’s talent in there, but I just think there is a mindset that needs to change.

‘I watch some games and I think they’re good, but then all of a sudden there is a switch which flips, and they can go from being really good to really bad and there’s a lack of consistency.’

United’s victory against Luton takes them to within three points of Spurs in fifth.

The Red Devils host Fulham on Saturday, before a trip to Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup.

Mason Mount could return for the trip to the Forest Ground, but Aaron Wan-Bissaka remains sidelined.
