The crushing loss leaves Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side seventh in the league, seven points behind Liverpool.

Speaking after the annihilation, club captain Maguire thanked Man United fans for their support during the match and apologised for their woeful performance.

He said: "Apologies to the fans, that is not good enough for this club.

"You stuck with us, singing at the end and we appreciate that.

"I will be looking at my individual performance then the team. To concede five in a game at Old Trafford is nowhere near good enough.

"I am the captain and we have to stick together, we have to look at each other then look at yourself in the mirror."

Solskjaer added: "It is the darkest day I have had leading these players. Not good enough individually or as a team.

"The coaching staff are very good, brilliant, and I choose the way we approach the game.

"Today we were not clinical enough going forward and when you give good players spaces they score.

"We lost 6-1 to Spurs last season but this is miles worse. We have to get over it as quick as we can and move on

"We are at rock bottom, we cannot feel any worse than this."

Asked about his position as Man United manager, he replied: "I have come too far, we have come too far as a group and we are too close to give up now."

Man United have now lost three league games this season as they resume their league campaign against Tottenham next weekend.
