Luke Shaw admits Manchester United’s winter training camp has come at the wrong time․
United played a goalless draw with Wolves on Saturday.
Asked how the mood in the dressing room was after the match Shaw said: “To be honest, really, really disappointed, especially with the way the games have been going recently. We haven’t been picking up too many points and today was massive for us, especially with Chelsea dropping points.
“It seems to keep happening. Teams around us drop points and we don’t end up closing the gap and we are suffering from that and we needed to win today. Now we haven’t got a game so soon and that is quite annoying, but we’ll have a little break and of course, we are looking forward to the big game when we get back.”
United do not have a match until travelling to top-four rivals Chelsea on February 17, with a warm-weather camp in Spain lined up.
“Maybe it’s nice to have a break but on the other hand with how the game went today, I’d rather have a game around the corner so we can put things right because we need to,” Shaw said.
“But that’s not the case, there’s the break. We’ll regroup, have a little break but obviously focus because it’s not the end of the season yet.
“Look, (Chelsea) is a massive game and one we seem to love playing in. We have played them probably quite a lot as well in the cups and stuff.
“We will have a few days off and then train very hard to get ready for that game because we know it’s going to be tough. We want to close the gap and we need to beat them.”
