Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford claimed he knows what’s going wrong at Old Trafford after the 2-0 home defeat to Manchester City.
Second-half goals from Bernardo Silva and substitute Leroy Sane killed off a fired-up United side and took City back above Liverpool at the top of the table.
City, who have won their last 11 league matches, now lead the Merseysiders by a point with three games remaining for both sides.
But United have now lost seven of their last nine games and Rashford was asked to explain what was going wrong.
Rashford told Sky Sports: “Today we didn’t play like Manchester United. It’s not right. The bare minimum is to work hard and give all for the badge, the supporters, the club and yourself.
“It has been a tough road to get to where we are, to get there and not be putting up the same performances as we were in January is disappointing. We know what’s been going wrong, it’s mentality and willingness to run for your team.
“Forget the league and top four, you don’t lose this game. It’s that simple as a Manchester United fan. We never call each other out but we have to be real with each other. It’s a matter of trying to improve each other.
“It’s more getting back used to doing it on the pitch. They [the supporters] know we can do it. Forget the top four and the Champions League. We have to get to the bottom of it and start playing like Manchester United for ourselves.”
