Following a helpless night at Old Trafford, Luke Shaw admitted that he had felt Manchester United’s hefty defeat against Liverpool forthcoming.

Luke Shaw has acknowledged that he had seen Manchester United’s huge defeat coming at the hands of Liverpool.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men now have four games without a win following a thrashing 5-0 defeat to Jurgen Klopp’s Reds at Old Trafford on Sunday. The goalscoring was initiated by Naby Keita and Diogo Jota for Liverpool, however, Mohamed Salah’s hattrick ended things for United.

After the game, Shaw was disappointed with his team’s overall performance and had no reasons to offer. 

The left-back told Stadium Astro: “I think it’s ourselves that we need to look at, first and foremost, in the mirror. Are we doing everything right and preparing right for the games in ourselves?”

“Of course we have the tactics and how the manager wants us to play. But I think at times we’re way too easy to play against. I think, for example, you look at the first goal, it can’t be possible that they can have sort of three running through in the first five minutes.”

“We need to be more compact, we need to be better and we know that. I think also maybe we can say this result was coming. I think in past games where we’ve won, we haven’t been at our best and we know that.”

“We felt that inside the dressing room. And today we need to reflect and we have to move on from this because it hurts.”
