Luke Shaw slams Man Utd's lack of effort and commitment in shock defeat against Wolves at Old Trafford

LUKE SHAW blasted Manchester United's lack of commitment following their shock defeat at home to Wolves.

United were beaten for the first time under Ralf Rangnick – who in November took over from sacked Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

But the same existing problems which led to Solskjaer's dismissal were on full display at the Theatre of Dreams.

Joao Moutinho's late 82nd-minute volley secured the upset win for Wolves, who are now three points behind seventh-placed United.

And left-back Shaw admitted the effort of his side was not good enough, with Rangnick's men losing further ground on the top four race.

He told Sky Sports: "Obviously not good enough. We really struggled, we couldn't get hold of the ball.

"When we didn't have the ball we weren't aggressive enough. We weren't on the front foot. We didn't put them under any pressure.

"It maybe looked like an easy game for them. A very disappointing performance and result.

"At times it was clear to see. We didn't have many options on the ball and we weren't on the front foot.

"We're at home with our crowd behind us, we have to put more pressure on them, we have to bring the intensity.

"Us players, we have been here a long time, maybe tonight we struggled, I didn't think we were all there together.

"We felt like we were struggling, it was tough.

"We know we need to be better.

"You look our squad, at the players we have, we have unbelievable quality but sometimes quality isn't enough.

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

"To win these types of games we all need to be 100 per cent committed. It is tough and disappointing.

"We have time now to refocus back, we've got a long training week and maybe the manager can bring some more ideas to what he wants on the pitch."
