Luke Shaw issues apology to Manchester United fans following 7-0 drubbing from Liverpool

Luke Shaw apologised to the supporters after Manchester United suffered a humiliating 7-0 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday.

It was a night to forget for the Red Devils as Liverpool ran riot at Anfield.

Many United players were abysmal, and one of the chief culprits was Shaw.

Speaking after the game, the left-back admitted that it was an embarrassing performance from his team.

He said (via Manchester Evening News): “It’s hard to explain this. I think the standards where we have been, it was nowhere near it.

“I feel embarrassed for the fans and the people who were watching for us. I can only apologise.

“It’s not going to be easy watching this back. But he [Ten Hag] is going to make us watch it back, and show us what we need to learn from this embarrassment.”

Man United have shown their character and resilient nature this season by bouncing back after heavy defeats.

However, the Liverpool result came just one week after the Carabao Cup triumph which is very surprising.

The Red Devils were dark horses in the Premier League title race, courtesy of their spectacular form post the World Cup.

But those expectations ended with Sunday’s thrashing.

Erik ten Hag has been stern with his players after their defeats and will likely hammer them on this occasion.

The way his players put their heads down and accepted the result was the most surprising part.

Man United host Real Betis in the Europa League on Thursday. It is a quick around for Ten Hag and he needs to get his squad back to their best.

After doing all the hard work against Barcelona in the previous round, United are the favourites to win the Europa League.

They cannot let Sunday’s shocking defeat affect their next performance.
