Former England midfielder Jamie Redknapp has concerns about Manchester United winger Jadon Sancho.

The pundit believes the winger is low on confidence and has a massive challenge to get back into the United team.

After United's 2-2 draw at Aston Villa, Redknapp said: "Sancho has a massive challenge on.

"He made an impact today when he came onto the pitch. When you come on, you hope to make a bit of magic but in this case, he's come on and the team has drawn 2-2 when he's supposed to be the player to help the team.

"He's low on confidence. I'm watching him play and he's a shadow of the player we saw in the Bundesliga. He's good in close areas but my biggest worry is that he doesn't have the pace to run past people.

"That's why Elanga played today. In the first few minutes, United played a ball down the line and he chased it. Sancho doesn't do that. That's a real worry for him.

"It's a big challenge for him. He's got to say he's up for the challenge and play, train and live right and maybe he can get back in the team.

"It's a huge challenge for him and Marcus Rashford."
