Declan Rice £100m EXCLUSIVE, Cristiano Ronaldo LATEST, Julian Alvarez talks, Wolves DEFEAT


Luke Shaw questioned the desire and commitment of United’s players following their 1-0 home defeat to Wolves.

Wanderers hit a late but deserved winner through Joao Moutinho to shock the lacklustre Red Devils at Old Trafford.

United left-back Shaw told Sky Sports: “It maybe looked like an easy game for them, and it was a disappointing performance and result.

“You look at the players we have and we have unbelievable quality – but sometimes quality is not enough.

“We need to bring the intensity and more motivation. Inside the dressing room, we know what we want but out on the pitch we need to give 100 per cent.”

United will be without Shaw and Scott McTominay when they face Aston Villa in the Premier League on January 15, after both picked up their fifth bookings of the season against Wanderers.

A lot of the pre-match talk was about United’s Phil Jones getting a shock start in the absence of injured Harry Maguire.

But the injury-blighted defender proved any doubters wrong as the hosts’ best player on the night.

The other big call for United’s caretaker boss Ralf Rangnick was who to make skipper in the absence of Maguire – and he went for Cristiano Ronaldo.

Rangnick said: “The question was is it David [De Gea] or him, these are the players who’ve been playing for the longest period of time.

“And I wanted an outfield player as captain which is why I chose Cristiano.”
