Jose Mourinho's side have been in poor form as of late but the veteran full-back says the squad want to quickly change their fortunes

Manchester United veteran Ashley Young has insisted that the squad cannot wait to right the wrongs of their Carabao Cup exit by getting back to winning ways against West Ham on Saturday.

The Red Devils have been heavily criticised this season and the pressure is on for them to deliver when they travel to the London Stadium this weekend.

United were surprisingly dumped out of the League Cup by Derby County on penalties on Tuesday night after Marouane Fellaini had seemingly bailed them out by sending it to spot-kicks with a stoppage-time equaliser.

The humbling by the Championship club is another disappointing result after United were outplayed by newly-promoted Wolves at Old Trafford last week in a 1-1 draw in the Premier League.

“When you lose or draw a game, you want another game as quick as possible. Saturday is another day, there's another game and we will be looking to get the three points at West Ham,” Young told MUTV.

“We have to dust ourselves down now, pick ourselves back up and go again on Saturday.

“This was a disappointing night and we have to get back to winning ways, get back to training and build and work again and work for the weekend.”

Young reflected on their defeat to the Championship club by claiming that United should have built on their early lead and that their intensity was not up to scratch.

“At 1-0 we had chances to win the match and on a different day the ball goes in the back of the net and it is a different game.

“When you play teams from the lower divisions it is always going to be tough and they had more intensity than we did. Obviously when you are playing these games you have to show that intensity and go further than the opposition but we didn’t do that and we got punished and they won the game.”
