Marcus Rashford said he stayed away from social media over the past few days because he was embarrassed by Manchester United’s 5-0 defeat to Liverpool but the forward promised fans the team were working hard to turn things around.

Mohamed Salah scored a hat-trick as Liverpool romped to a stunning victory at Old Trafford, with United slipping to seventh after a fourth straight Premier League match without a win.

“I can’t lie, you haven’t heard from me on here because as a United fan I didn’t really know what to say after Sunday,” Rashford tweeted. “I was embarrassed. I am embarrassed. Our fans are everything and you didn’t deserve that. We’re working hard to try and fix this. We have to redeem ourselves.”

United travel to Tottenham on Saturday in the league before a midweek trip to Italy to face Atalanta in the Champions League. They then host Manchester City the following Saturday.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær has been allowed to continue as manager after discussions at the club over whether to sack him and despite several players questioning whether he can take the team any further. - Guardian
