Manchester United Play-maker, Luke Shaw said his side’s dressing room was in turmoil at half-time against Liverpool as they has to send three players out due to injury.
Ander Herrera, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard were all out of the game leaving united in a state of reconstructing their resilience to maintain their Premier league unbeaten run.
The contest became a scrappy, stop-start affair as a result of the changes, with Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino also hobbling off for the visitors in the 31st minute.
According to him, the ‘crazy’ mood of the squad during a scores lock of 0-0 was luck as Liverpool took over ball possession for extended time.
“We were all very disappointed with how the first half went,” the England international said post-match, as per the Evening Standard. “We didn’t play well at all.
“We gave too many balls away too cheaply and luckily that didn’t cost us. But we had a change of formation, we had a good chat at half-time. Everyone was going crazy.
“We said ‘relax and we just need to play our game’ and I think the second half was better.
“We still weren’t at our best but overall I think we created the best chances and I feel we should have won.”
But amidst all the injuries united suffered, Shaw exhibited extra watch-ins against Mohamed Salah.
”We all know how unbelievable Liverpool’s attack is and I don’t even think David (de Gea) had a save,” Shaw continued.
“So, that’s credit, not just to the back five, but the whole team for doing their job.
“These are the games that you want to try to step up in – you want to try and prove why you’re here.
“You want to play against the best, you want to test yourself against the best and I want to keep doing that in my career.
“I think I’ve still got another level to come. I don’t think I am really at my best and I know what I can do when I’m at my best.”
Meanwhile as United looks forward to tackle Crystal Palace on Wednesday, United manager, Ole Gunnar has said some of the club’s youngsters could make the midweek squad following a string of injuries.
