'We need to look in the mirror' - Man Utd's Shaw left 'embarrassed' by horrific loss to Spurs

Luke Shaw Manchester United 2020-21

Manchester United defender Luke Shaw admitted he was "embarrassed" by the club's performance in Sunday's lopsided loss to Tottenham.

Following an early Bruno Fernandes goal, the match completely shifted in Tottenham's favour, with Spurs firing off seven consecutive goals against a hapless Man Utd.

The first half saw Spurs find goals from Tanguy Ndombele and Harry Kane, while Son Heung-min took the lead with a brace within 37 minutes.

In the second half, Kane completed his double from the penalty spot while Serge Aurier got on the scoresheet as well.

Making matters worse was Anthony Martial's first-half dismissal, with the forward handed a red card for putting his hands on Eric Lamela's face.

The defeat will only add to the frustrations of club supporters, with Man Utd's lack of new signings this summer already proving a point of contention.

Following the match, Shaw said that the team was left both saddened and embarrassed by their own performance while also admitting that the club is nowhere near where it needs to be.

He told Sky Sports: "It was a lack of concentration and then a mistake, another mistake, another mistake. We switched off. It really hurts.

"Manchester United shouldn't lose in this manner. It really hurts, it's embarrassing and we've let a lot of people down. We've let ourselves down and the staff down.

"We need to look in the mirror, we are nowhere near it at the moment. Maybe it's lucky that we've got a break now.

"When we went down to 10 men maybe we gave up, there wasn't that character on the pitch. We were too quiet and naive. There was many mistakes, we need to do more.

"It's embarrassing. I was embarrassed on the pitch. We need a long hard look at ourselves."

Following Sunday's defeat, Manchester United will look to regroup against Newcastle following the international break.
