Luke Shaw expresses the mood in Manchester United’s dressing room following Arsenal’s defeat.

Man United were defeated 3-2 by Arsenal on Sunday, and Luke Shaw assessed on the performance after the game.

Manchester United’s loss to Arsenal, according to Luke Shaw, was a “reality check” for the club this season.

Despite the fact that Erik ten Hag is in his first season as manager at Old Trafford, which was expected to be a transitional season, there was speculation of a potential title challenge following the Manchester derby triumph.

However, speculation of a title challenge has swiftly faded down following a midweek draw against Crystal Palace and a 3-2 setback against Arsenal on Sunday afternoon, where Ten Hag’s side conceded a 90th-minute goal to leave London empty-handed.

Marcus Rashford and Lisandro Martinez got on the scoresheet for United but their goals were not enough for a draw.

Shaw believes the setback would provide United with a “reality check” after Eddie Nketiah scored a brace.

“You have to give them credit for what they’ve done this season, we’re only halfway but I think they deserve to be at the top from the way they play and how they play. But like I just said, we’re only halfway through the season,” Shaw told Sky Sports.

“There is a long, long way to go and we have to focus on our next game, as we’ve got a semi-final coming up. The quality of these games are improving, it was a tough game to be involved in, but these are the games every player wants to play in.

“It’s to themselves against the best and we’re all very gutted in the dressing room now. It’s a bit of a reality check.

“So we have to get back to work tomorrow with a big game this Wednesday.”
