Man United frustrated by the blow of the first four, says Luke Shaw
LONDON: Luke shaw Has revealed United Manchester The stars were greatly frustrated at not being able to close the gap Premier league The first four.
Fourth place Chelsea The 2-2 draw at Leicester on Saturday gave United the opportunity to reduce the six-point difference.
But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer The men fell to sixth place after a 0-0 draw against Wolves in Old trafford later in the day.
Even the presence of new firms Bruno Fernandes , who made his midfield debut, could not galvanize United.
When asked what the mood was in the locker room after the game, the United Shaw defender said: To be honest, really disappointed, especially with the way the games have been running recently.
We haven't been picking up too many points and today was massive for us, especially with Chelsea dropping points.
It seems to keep happening. The teams around us lose points and we don't end up closing the gap and we are suffering for that and we need to win today.
Now we do not have a game so soon and that is quite annoying, but we will have a little rest and, of course, we expect the big game when we return.
United have had a frantic winter fixture schedule and now do not have a match until traveling for a crucial clash at fourth-placed rivals Chelsea on February 17, with a warm-weather camp in Spain lined up in the meantime.
Maybe it's nice to have a break, but on the other hand, with how the game went today, I'd rather have a game around the corner so we can fix things because we need it, Shaw said.
" But that's not the case, there's the break. We'll regroup, have a little break but obviously focus because it's not the end of the season yet.
Look, Chelsea is a massive game and one we seem to love playing in.
We have probably played them a lot in the cups and stuff.
We will have a few days off and then we will train very hard to prepare for that game because we know it will be difficult.
We want to close the gap and we need to overcome them.
