Manchester United players will hold a meeting with their manager to discuss their defeat by Manchester City on Monday, according to a statement made by Christian Eriksen.
Eriksen, while sharing his views on the result at the Etihad and giving a candid evaluation of his side’s awful performance which resulted in a 6-3 loss in the Manchester derby, said every United player will be looking at themselves to determine what went wrong.
Manchester City scored 6 goals against their local rivals. Erling Haaland and Phil Foden shared the goals equally among themselves. United, on the other hand, scored three times as Anthony Martial netted twice and Antony also scored a stunning goal.
“As a group, everyone will be looking at themselves, we will have a meeting with the manager tomorrow to go through everything that went wrong today,” Eriksen told Sky Sports. “We have to take this as a tough defeat and it is about getting back up and showing character. We need to do that.
“It came very heavy, everyone feels it as a very bad day at the office,” the Dane added. “We started on the wrong foot and they had a lot of chances from kick-off. We have to blame ourselves.
“The main focus from this game should be on ourselves and there are many things we have to change. It was far from acceptable. You always want to beat the rivals and win the derbies. It is something we need to do better next time.”q
