Luke Shaw explains how Man United’s defeat vs Brentford helped players

Luke Shaw believes Manchester United’s players ‘learned’ from their shocking defeats against Brighton and Brentford. After unexpected defeats against Brighton and Brentford in August, the optimism of the new Premier League season quickly disappeared and it felt like nothing had changed at Old Trafford, despite the appointment of Erik ten Hag from Ajax. However, United responded to that poor start by winning four consecutive games, which included victories against Liverpool and Arsenal, and results have improved throughout the season, which has seen the club’s fortunes transformed.

Shaw, speaking at a pre-Barcelona press conference, was asked about that disappointing start to the season on Wednesday evening and the in-form England international explained the players were able to learn from those defeats. “I think not just myself but the team in the first two games was nowhere near where we should be,” Shaw said. “We’ve learned from that and grown as a team and I think it’s showing in our performances. The manager has been really good, he’s shown a lot of trust in me and I want to repay that with my displays.” Shaw was also asked about the impact of Casemiro and he lauded the difference the Brazilian has been able to make. “I think it’s obvious to see how important he is to the team,” he added. “For us as defenders, it gives us a feeling of security. He loves to win the ball back and tackle. We joke he likes to give the ball away so he can win it back. “I’m very happy to have him back tomorrow night because he’s been a big miss for us.” READ MORE: The latest Manchester United news Ferdinand describes how Rashford can improve Ten Hag sets three personal targets with United Ten Hag gives honest verdict about Barcelona Owen names missing ingredient in title charge Story SavedYou can find this story in  My Bookmarks.Or by navigating to the user icon in the top right.
