Man Utd flops look glum as they're dragged to training early just hours after 7-0 battering at arch-rivals Liverpool | The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED's stars reported for training just hours after being thrashed 7-0 at Anfield.

A number of glum faces were seen arriving at the club's Carrington HQ.

Sunday's embarrassing 7-0 loss to bitter rivals Liverpool was United's worst defeat in almost a century.

Boss Erik ten Hag vowed after the game that his team will "bounce back" – and getting back to work in training is the perfect way to start putting things right.

Sky Sports claimed the players were dragged in early, with some arriving before 9am.

The 4-0 defeat at Brentford earlier in the season prompted boss Ten Hag to order his players into training for extra running.

And MEN say Ten Hag himself had already been onsite for two hours before the players arrived on Monday.

Midfield general Casemiro, plus Diogo Dalot and Alejandro Garnacho, all showed no expression as they came through the gates at Carrington on Monday morning.

The dreadful defeat at Anfield left United's already slim title hopes in tatters, with the Red Devils now trailing leaders Arsenal by 14 points.

But the good news for Ten Hag and Co is they have the opportunity to instantly respond.

The Red Devils return to action on Thursday with the Europa League Round of 16 first leg against Real Betis at Old Trafford.

Another home game against lowly Southampton follows on Sunday, before the return clash with Betis.

Three victories would quickly erase the damaging memories from Anfield and build on the good work Ten Hag has done since arriving at Old Trafford.

United are also in the FA Cup quarter-finals, with a good chance of adding another trophy to the Carabao Cup triumph from last month.

They will host Fulham at Old Trafford.

And Ten Hag already has his players hard at work ahead of a crucial run in to the end of the campaign.

He said on Sky after the Liverpool defeat: "I said in the dressing room it's not acceptable, their performance, it's clear.

"But it's only one game, though a big defeat, unacceptable, and especially for our fans, especially against Liverpool.

"We will bounce back.
