Nani: Wants more from United

Nani: Wants more from United

The Portugal international made his first Premier League start of the season on Saturday against the Baggies, putting several dangerous crosses into the box.

Nothing came of his hard work tough, and Nani knows that United need to improve all over the pitch if they are to mount a serious title defence.

"First half we controlled the game, but just couldn't score," said Nani.

"After our goal, I thought we were going to play better and get the second goal, but they just took their chances.

"We have a strong team here at United, some good players, so I am in no doubt we will put it right.

"We will just go out and try and win the next one.

"We should be playing better, but sometimes this happens."

The result means this is United's worst start to the season since 1986, while it is West Brom's first win at Old Trafford since 1978. Nani knows that United must avoid other shock defeats from now on.

"We have been in this position before, so we know how to deal with it," he said.

"Everything takes time to work, the fans must be patient, and from the next game, we hope everything is right.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
