Jose Mourinho is preparing to overhaul his Manchester United defence this summer with Phil Jones and Chris Smalling facing the axe at Old Trafford.

That defeat at St James' Park exposed their vulnerability at the back, even though Mourinho's side boast the best defensive record in the Premier League, conceding one goal fewer than runaway leaders Manchester City.

Souness believes United are now wobbling after defeat at Newcastle United on Sunday.

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 because of it.

Mourinho is not the only person skeptical over Smalling and Jones, with ex-United defender Phil Neville - the new England women's manager - having expressed his concerns over the partnership.

"We got control midway through the first half and should have scored".

Speaking on Match of The Day 2 (via Goal.com), Neville said: "They have got the best defensive record because they have the best goalkeeper in the world in David De Gea and Matic out in front who protects them really well".

'Against Dele Alli and Harry Kane, they got bullied.

Leicester City's Harry Maguire, who could be subject of a £50m move in the summer, and Real's Raphael Varane are noted as possible targets, the publication adds.

He added: "They were making decisions that were odd".

The same story says that Mourinho is keen to bring in a new centre-half in the summer transfer window as he looks to try and make the Red Devils more reliable at the back.

With Marcos Rojo and Victor Lindelof available, Mourinho could shuffle his pack in defence for the upcoming FA Cup and Champions League games.

United have been without the Ivory Coast global for the last three months as he recovers from ankle surgery.
