Man Utd fullback Shaw: We're not out of our rut - we cannot relax

Manchester United fullback Luke Shaw says the players know they're not out of their slump.

After their thrashing by Liverpool, United rallied to win 3-0 at Tottenham in the Premier League at the weekend before Cristiano Ronaldo's late goal rescued a 2-2 draw in the Champions League against Atalanta on Tuesday, but Shaw knows they cannot get comfortable despite the upturn in results.

He told beIN Sports: "We have to keep this attitude. Just because we beat Spurs 3-0 and we picked up a point here, we can't put our heads down, we can't get comfortable.

"We can't think, 'Ah, look, we've done it now, we've got out of our rut and everything's perfect, everything's fine'. It's not. We know we need to dig deep. We know we're not in a good situation, we know what we've been doing hasn't been good enough.

"As a team we've talked about that inside the dressing room, so the games didn't come any easier, so we need to be ready for this one because it's at home and it's a big game."
