Manchester United left-back has apologised to the fans after their 3-1 defeat to West Ham on Saturday.

The Red Devils have suffered their worst ever start to a Premier League season with only 10 points in 7 matches. They are currently 10th in the table.

This defeat has led many to believe that Jose Mourinho will receive the sack soon. However, Shaw said that the players must also take their fair share of responsibility in the defeat.

Shaw said, “If you want the truth I think it was honestly horrendous. We didn’t look like a team today that was going to beat West Ham. I think individually and as a team we were awful. That’s not good enough.

It’s hard to take and we’re sorry to the fans for what they saw. It was not good enough from a Manchester United team with all the talent we have. It’s disappointing and a very, very bad day for us.

We have to look at ourselves as players. We’re the ones who go on the pitch. The manager isn’t on the pitch, is he? He’s there to put a team out and put a team out that he thinks can win the game.

You look at our team against West Ham and we had a very strong team. No excuses. As players we weren’t good enough.”

West Ham opened the scoring in the 5th minute thanks to Felipe Anderson before an own goal from Victor Lindelof doubled their lead at the interval.

Shaw said that Mourinho spoke some firm words in the dressing room. The left-back said, “From the first minute you could see we weren’t winning the second balls and our duels.

It’s hard to take. It just wasn’t good enough from us. That shouldn’t be happening. Games like this we should be dominating, creating chances, showing people why we deserve to play for Manchester United. It was very poor from us. Very, very poor. We didn’t speak too much but obviously at half-time there were a few words and I think it was needed.

It was, ‘Wake up!’ and words that he’s said before – we need to be moving, we need to concentrate more, we need to want the ball, we need to be playing. But that didn’t happen.”

Manchester United will try to get back to winning ways when they take on Valencia at home tomorrow. Valencia have endured a worse league start than United, having won only 1 out of their first seven matches.

Manchester United resume their Premier League campaign on Saturday against Newcastle United.
