Luke Shaw has admitted that it is becoming hard to stay positive at Manchester United after the club failed to score for their fourth straight game.

Manchester United have come away from London with their stockings empty after their last fixture before Christmas ended in a 2-0 loss against West Ham in the Premier League.

Erik ten Hag‘s man have now failed to score in their last 381 minutes of football, with Scott McTominay the last to find the back of the net against Chelsea on 6 December.

Speaking after the loss, Luke Shaw explained that he feels United may just not be creating enough chances and also not doing enough with those they do create.

“It’s tough to think what’s going on,” Shaw told TNT Sports. “I think maybe we’re just not creating enough, and when we do, on the other hand, we’re not clinical.

“Maybe it could be a lack of confidence at the moment, sometimes that’s normal in football, it happens. Like I said, we have to try and keep staying positive.

“We’ve got another big game coming up against Aston Villa, so we can’t feel sorry for ourselves, we have to pick ourselves up and go again. It’s a home game, and we can’t keep dropping points, we have to win games.”

Speaking further, Shaw was asked if it is becoming difficult to stay positive, and he, rather worryingly, admitted that this is the case.

“Yeah, it is (hard to stay positive), but it’s our job. We have to stay positive. This is Manchester United, one of the biggest clubs in the world, and like I said before, it’s not good enough. We know that, and we have to dig deep, look ourselves in the mirror, and question ourselves and go from there.”

United will next play on Boxing Day when they welcome Aston Villa to Old Trafford in the Premier League.
