    NO EXCUSE

    Manchester United star Luke Shaw admitted the team 'gave up' after just 28 minutes against Tottenham, once Anthony Martial was sent off.

    And speaking after the humiliation, left-back Shaw said he was 'embarrassed' to be on the pitch and said the team had 'no character'.

    The 25-year-old told Sky Sports: “It was a lack of concentration and then a mistake, another mistake, another mistake.

    “We switched off. It really hurts.

    “Manchester United shouldn't lose in this manner. It really hurts, it's embarrassing and we've let a lot of people down.

    “We've let ourselves down and the staff down.

    “We need to look in the mirror, we are nowhere near it at the moment. Maybe it's lucky that we've got a break now.

    “When we went down to 10 men maybe we gave up, there wasn't that character on the pitch. We were too quiet and naive. There was many mistakes, we need to do more.

    “It's embarrassing. I was embarrassed on the pitch. We need a long hard look at ourselves.”

    PAT ON THE HEAD

    Patrice Evra launched a passionate tirade after Manchester United went into half-time 4-1 down in their humiliation against Spurs.

    The Red Devils legend told fans to 'go on the Playstation and buy Jadon Sancho and Lionel Messi' following the Old Trafford disaster.

    Speaking on Sky Sports, he said: “I don't know if I have to comment like all of this – we get lucky, Tottenham give us a penalty away.

    “I've been losing in my career with Manchester United – six one against Manchester City, (Sir Alex) Ferguson was furious after the game.

    “He said 'why do you keep attacking Patrice?' and I say it's because its the philosophy of the club.

    “But are you seeing this right now? That's why I don't even want to comment because it is a catastrophe what is happening right now.

    “My advice to any fan right now is to buy a PlayStation. Buy a player like Sancho, even Messi and start playing because it is a disaster.

    “I've been a player so that's why I don't like to go on one player, but all of the defence is a shock.

    “Bailly has the chance to play instead of Lindelof and he made that mistake – so don't cry when you don't play.

    “I'm devastated and I am a positive person, but right now I understand, like the pain of all United fans, because no one in this team deserves to play right now.”

    NEVERMIND THE B*******!

    With United trailing 4-1 at half-time, boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was left with a crucial team-talk asking his players to show some pride for the club.

    And Scott McTominay has revealed exactly what the Norwegian said to his charges at the break.

    “The message was to show some b******* and to go on the pitch and show yourself as a Manchester United player,” the Scotsman told MUTV.

    “Not to shy away, not want the ball, and not make any tackles. Never has that been Manchester United.”

    PEEP-PEEP

    Manchester United fans will be furious with their humiliating defeat to Tottenham today.

    The Red Devils have just lost 1-6 at home to Spurs, and the reaction from this will be massive.

    But with Edinson Cavani and Alex Telles reportedly on the verge of sealing moves to Old Trafford, those two could lift Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men.

    NOT ALWAYS A GOOD FIT

    United haven't always got it right when they've signed South Americans.

    And with the club on the verge of sealing a deal for Uruguayan Edinson Cavani, it brings back memories of the Argentinians, Brazilians and more who worn the Red Devils jersey.

    Here's who has and hasn't been a success for the Premier League giants, and how SunSport ranks them.

    HALF-TIME

    Manchester United fans look away for now.

    The Red Devils are trailing Tottenham at half-time 4-1 at Old Trafford and have been shambolic at the back.

    Can they stage a remarkable comeback?

    'IT'S EMBARRASSING'

    Gary Neville has slammed Manchester United’s recruitment again this summer.

    The former Old Trafford full-back told Off the Ball: “I just don’t think they’re smart enough and wise enough and agile enough in the market.

    “They’re being outwitted in the market by the other clubs and if you lose recruitment you don’t win the league, it’s as simple as that.

    “You can have a great coach but if you don’t get the right players you’re not going to win the league.

    “The Sancho thing is embarrassing.

    “It’s been going on now for fourth months. It’s embarrassing, that.

    “And then to put a bid in that gets rejected, the smart clubs, they have deals sorted behind the scenes, the agents are working hard, club officials are agreed on things and when the bids goes in it gets accepted, it’s done.”

    EMBARASSED EVRA

    Former Manchester United player and legend Patrice Evra is not shy of voicing his opinion.

    In the build up to the mouth watering tie between United and Spurs this afternoon, he spoke about certain topics

    Evra said “When I meet people, unfortunately we always talk about transfer”

    “I think the Sancho saga is embarrassing”

    “Until I see Cavani with the Manchester United shirt, I won't say anything”

    “I wish myself a better Sunday”

    It's clear to see what he thinks of the Red Devils current transfer business so far.

    SPECIAL ONES

    Last time Man Utd hosted Tottenham, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer got one over Jose Mourinho with an impressive 2-1 win.

    Marcus Rashford bagged both goals for the Red Devils.

    I TELLE YOU WHAT

    According to Sky Sources, Manchester United have made an improved bid for their left back target Alex Telles.

    £15.6m is what the Red Devils have offered to Porto, but again that has been rejected.

    A BEEK DAY

    Donny van de Beek could make his first league start for Manchester United as they take on former boss Jose Mourinho's Spurs today.

    The midfielder has been limited to substitute appearances so far but Solskjaer said: “We know how many games we’re going to play this season and he’s going to be vital to us.”

    Meanwhile Eric Bailly could start ahead of Victor Lindelof after a string of impressive performances.

    Here's how we think the Red Devils may line up for the visit of Tottenham.

    ROONEY RANT

    The Sancho saga seems to be coming to an end but Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney reckons that a winger is not what they needed anyway.

    He told the Sunday Times: “Why consider paying close to £100m for someone similar to talent you've got already?

    “United have Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial, and where would Sancho's arrival leave Mason Greenwood, who plays the same position ad is of similar age?”

    “I'd rather put that £100m towards trying to get Harry Kane.”

    “A Kane or Haaland or someone like Robert Lewandowski would give Rashford and Martial someone to play off and freedom to roam into different areas, pick the ball up and try to beat men – without the burden of always having to score.”

    SANCHO IS A NO GO

    Borussia Dortmund have made it clear to Manchester United that the ship has sailed to sign Jadon Sancho.

    The Red Devils originally had a deadline on August 10 to wrap up the deal but came up a little over £15m short of the wingers £108m price tag.

    Further speculation was added when Sancho was completely left out of the squad in Saturday's 4-0 victory over SC Freiburg.

    However, Dortmund player Thomas Meunier stated to Sky Sports News that “Sancho is staying” before walking into the clubs training centre.

    The Barcelona winger did not want to leave Barcelona, but after having talks with United, he has been convinced to join the club.

    The 23-year-old has demanded a long-term contract at Old Trafford though.

    CAVANI LATEST

    Edinson Cavani has agreed personal terms with Manchester United and is flying to England today to complete the transfer.

    The Uruguayan, 33, will sign a two-year deal at Old Trafford, worth around £174,000 a week.

    That will make him Manchester United's seventh-highest earning player.

    MORNING, UTD FANS

    United host Spurs this afternoon with PSG record scorer Edinson Cavani in town at the same time to complete his free transfer.

    Uruguay's legendary striker, 33, has agreed a two-year contract worth about £200,000-a-week. 

    United have also reportedly tied up a deal for Cavani's 18-year-old countryman Facundo Pellistri on a five-year deal – beating Chelsea, neighbours City and Real Madrid to the Penarol winger.

    Old Trafford boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still hopes Borussia Dortmund's England attacker Jadon Sancho will arrive before Monday's deadline.

    But for the next few hours Solskjaer's thoughts are on making it two wins from three Premier League games by seeing off old manager Jose Mourinho's Tottenham.

    Meanwhile, former Old Trafford strikers Dimitar Berbatov and Teddy Sheringham both claim a new frontman should be a far greater priority than a new wideman like Sancho.

    And Berbatov even claims Romelu Lukaku is “probably laughing” at United for the “mistake” of letting him join Inter Milan.

    LUKAKU 'LAUGHING' AT UTD

    Dimitar Berbatov says Romelu Lukaku is now “laughing” at Manchester United for selling him.

    The ex-Old Trafford striker believes the club need to sign a centre-back and a goalscorer — after flogging Lukaku to Inter Milan for £73millionlast term.

    The Belgium frontman went on to hit 38 goals and already has three in two games for the Italians this term.

    Berbatov, 39, said: “I said letting him go was a mistake and now he’s probably sitting at home laughing.

    “I like the strikers United have but they need that goalscorer that guarantees you 30, 25, or 20 goals.”

    CAVANI ON BRINK

    Manchester United are on the brink of landing Edinson Cavani on a free transfer.

    And club insiders are convinced the Uruguay striker can have a similar impact on the club as cult hero Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

    Cavani, 33, was released by Paris Saint-Germain in June and is due in Manchester on Sunday ahead of agreeing a two-year contract worth about £200,000-a-week.

    As long as he passes the medical there should be no problems finalising a deal because both parties are determined to make it happen.

    Some fans are already voicing fears that the move will see the club plunge into a financial fiasco like the one that cost £66million in wages for flop Alexis Sanchez.

    But sources insist the top brass view it more like the move that saw Ibrahimovic become a terrace idol.

    Cavani’s wages will be half the salary Sanchez was on — and he is said to be desperate to prove himself in England.

    SANCHO'S NOT THE ONE UTD NEED

    Teddy Sheringham says Manchester United need a world-class signing — but not Jadon Sancho.

    The former United and Spurs star believes bringing in a top-class centre-forward or centre-back — or preferably both — should be the priority at Old Trafford.

    Sheringham said: “I’m not sure that Sancho is the answer to what Manchester United need at the moment.

    “They’ve got tricky wingers. They’ve got flying players. If anything, they still need players down the spine of the team.

    “If they are going to be a top team, they need a top centre- forward and another top centre-half to play alongside Maguire.

    “You look at Liverpool and the signings they have made, Thiago and Jota. They are fantastic acquisitions, to make them even better than they were last year.

    “Have Man Utd done that? I don’t think so.”

    EDIN IN?

    Manchester United are reportedly close to sealing a sensational deal to sign free-agent Edinson Cavani.

    And the former Paris Saint-Germain striker could fly into the UK today to seal the deal.

    MailOnline reports that United 'are holding talks' with the 33-year-old and that his signing 'would make economic and sporting sense'.

    Cavani's demands of a £210,000 contract and a two-year deal had seemed a stumbling block but both parties could be keen to meet in the middle with the transfer deadline closing in.

    ALEX-IT STILL ON?

    Man United are still in talks over Porto's Alex Telles, say reports.

    In a busy day of transfer action at the club, the Telles deal is still on after days of talks.

    United are unwilling to meet the £18m asking price as his they can get him for free next summer.

    But with only 48 hours of the window to go, it is possible they may budge.
