Phil Neville: Manchester United has failed this season

The Red Devils take on Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday sitting seventh in the Premier League, contemplating a first season without Champions League soccer in 18 years.

Phil Neville says Manchester United has failed to meet "any levels of expectations" in David Moyes' first season in charge at Old Trafford.

United takes on Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday sitting seventh in the Premier League, and is preparing for its first season without Champions League soccer for 18 years.

And Neville, a prominent member of Moyes' backroom team, concedes that no one at the club has any excuse for falling drastically short in the first season since Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement.

"We have not fulfilled any levels of expectations this season," Neville told BBC's "Football Focus." "We have failed on the football pitch and that doesn't sit kindly with anyone. We are not hiding away from the fact that we have underperformed.

"It's been difficult watching other teams above us do well and to even look at a league table. I find it difficult to watch Match of the Day on Saturday night. I find it almost impossible because we've suffered this season."
