Mason Mount has candidly acknowledged the predicament faced by Manchester United amidst their ongoing challenges.
The Red Devils have encountered a rather vexing commencement to the current season, suffering defeat in four out of their seven opening fixtures.
Their most recent setback unfolded at Old Trafford this past Saturday when they succumbed to a 1-0 loss against Crystal Palace.
As reported by Goal, Joachim Andersen’s deflected goal in the first half of the match proved to be the decisive factor, consigning United to the defeat.
This outcome has resulted in Erik ten Hag’s team finding themselves in the 10th position on the Premier League table, having amassed a mere nine points.
In light of these developments, it is apparent that Manchester United is grappling with a series of challenges that need to be addressed promptly to regain their competitive edge in the Premier League.
The recent defeat against Crystal Palace has only underscored the urgency of the situation.
To turn the tide, United must focus on shoring up their defensive vulnerabilities, rekindling their attacking prowess, and fostering a sense of cohesion within the squad.
Furthermore, fans and management alike will be eagerly anticipating a resurgence in form, which would enable the club to climb the Premier League standings and reclaim their status as a formidable force in English football.
Mount comments on Man United’s struggles
Mount has now voiced his frustrations with United’s ongoing struggles, insisting the club must pick up the pieces and improve quickly.
According to the midfielder, who joined United from Chelsea this summer, the Red Devils need to bounce back real soon.
“We want to win these games and we know we need to win these games. It’s been a difficult start. When you go 1-0 down, it’s always going to be hard to get back in the game. We had a few chances, but it wasn’t enough,” he said via The Mirror.
“We know we need to go back and look at the areas we need to improve on. We need to improve because we want to win games,” he added.
