(Video) Luke Shaw admits Manchester United players are already back in the gym after winning the Carabao Cup.

Manchester United ended a six-year trophy drought last weekend, with Erik ten Hag directing his team to a 2-0 victory over Newcastle in the Carabao Cup final.

Prior to the final, United was the only team in Europe’s top five leagues still competing in four tournaments, and they now hope to go the distance in the remaining three after winning at Wembley.

Despite United’s congested fixture schedule, which will see them play every three or four days for the next two months, defender Luke Shaw has dismissed any notion that players will be given days off after winning a championship.

Speaking earlier on Monday at Carrington, the defender claimed that players are back in training less than 24 hours after celebrating their victory and are already preparing for Wednesday’s FA Cup encounter against West Ham.

“Obviously, we don’t want to look too far,” Shaw told Football Daily on the prospect of welcoming West Ham to Old Trafford.

“Of course, the game is a really big game on Wednesday. It’s a competition that, of course, we want to look to win. That’s why we’re in today. There’s no days off, there were not really many celebrations last night.

“So I think full focus after that was to make sure we come in today and prepare for that game because like I said, it’s a competition we want to stay involved in and we know it’s going to be a tough test against West Ham.”

Success over David Moyes’ side would propel United into the FA Cup quarter-finals, and another trip to Wembley would be on the cards.

That Carabao Cup victory was many of United’s first-team players’ first taste of trophy, and it will undoubtedly motivate them in the future.

Realistically, United are still in contention to win two more titles this season, having previously knocked out favourites Barcelona in the Europa League.
