Luke Shaw has defended Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, insisting that he and his Manchester United teammates are to blame for the club’s present woes.
After a Mohamed Salah hat-trick inspired Liverpool to a 5-0 triumph at Old Trafford, the Red Devils suffered their third Premier League defeat of the season.
The humiliating setback, which puts United in seventh place in the table and without a league win since September 19, added to the strain on Solskjaer, who saw his side ripped apart at whim by Jurgen Klopp’s side after scoring four goals in the first half.
Naby Keita’s opener saw Shaw exposed to a three-on-one situation, before a mix-up with centre-back Harry Maguire led to Diogo Jota’s tap-in eight minutes later. And England left-back Shaw insists it is for those reasons the criticism should be levelled at his performance and that of his team-mates, insisting they were ‘too easy to play through’.
Asked about his thoughts on the game, Shaw told Stadium Astro: ‘Not good enough. I know of course this is a team sport but as individuals we need to be accountable for some of the performances. ‘That’s why I’m out here now, I’m not hiding in there and not speaking, I’ve come out and I will say I was not good enough. I speak on behalf of myself, not the team.
