Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata has urged his teammates to stick together and win as soon as possible following Norwich City defeat.
The Red Devils suffered their third loss in a row after The Canaries smashed Van Gaal’s United at Old Trafford on Saturday to complete six consecutive games without a win.
“Of course we’re disappointed," he told MUTV, Manchester United's official website reports.
"It's another very difficult day for us, but the only thing we can do now is stick together and hope that we get the win in the next game because we need it. We need to win as soon as possible.
“It’s very frustrating not to win, especially at home. We should win at Old Trafford if we want to be successful, but we haven’t done it. We feel deeply sorry for the fans, I think they're incredible, so we have to do better for them.
“Everyone’s frustrated; the fans, the staff and especially us. As I said before, we need to stick together. It’s time for us to show that we're strong, we have to fight in every game and get back to getting good results as soon as possible. It’s Christmas time, a crucial time, so we have to do it.
“We tried [to come back]. You always have to believe until the end that you can score, firstly to equalise and then win the game. Anthony Martial scored a good goal and after that we created chances, but it was too late in the game I think. We couldn’t do it, and I’m very disappointed."
