Speaking to Fox Sports Robin van Persie has revealed that he and his teammates held an inquest to discuss what went wrong, which was at points “confronting.”

Van Persie said, It shouldn’t be possible. But it still happened. We have to deal with it. We had a proper look at it next day. Sometimes it was a bit confronting and it was a long meeting. One hour (or) something.

“We went from there, started again this week (and have put) a couple of really good sessions in. Everyone feels ready to face West Ham.”

“When you look at the defensive mistakes, it starts somewhere else. That’s where we looked at as well. It’s not just the one mistake which happens. There’s a mistake before the mistake and before the mistake, maybe positional wise. Everyone knows where we have to improve.”

Manchester United face West Ham on Saturday as Louis van Gaal searches for his 2nd Premier League win of the season.
