“We’ve been having these kind of games for a long time and we haven’t solved the problem, conceding easy, stupid goals.”

Paul Pogba questions Manchester United Mentality after their shambolic defeat to Leicester at Kings Power Stadium.

Manchester United crashed to another dismal defeat as their English league record 29-game unbeaten away run ended at Leicester stadium.

The Red Devils have won just two of their last seven matches in all competitions and despite goals from Mason Greenwood and returnee Marcus Rashford, United were still beaten convincingly, raising questions about Ole Gunnar Solskjaer position as head coach.

Like the supporters, midfielder Pogba was also heartbroken about the result and admitted his team “deserved” to be beaten by Leicester because of their performance.

“We deserved to lose,” Pogba told the BBC

“We’ve been having these kind of games for a long time and we haven’t solved the problem, conceding easy, stupid goals.

“Fans are going to push, there’s going to be pressure on us and everything. We need to be mature and play with more experience and arrogance in a good way.

“We need to find something, we need to change.

“Now we have to find what’s key to the games we lose, because we deserved to lose. It’s frustrating.

“We need to find the right mentality and tactic.”

Like Paul Pogba, Manchester United Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer also felt heartbroken about the result.

Solskjaer, 48, added: “The whole performance, it wasn’t good enoughWe need to look at the whole set-up of the team.

“It shouldn’t be a wake- up call because we’ve had them before.

“They’ve got to look at themselves in the mirror. I’ve already looked at myself. You’ve got to respond to setbacks.”

He went on to admit his mistake about bringing back Harry Maguire after the captain completed one training session following a calf injury.

“He worked hard with the physios. If that doesn’t work out — and sometimes it doesn’t — and when we concede four, I probably made a few bad decisions.”

United host Atalanta in the Champions League on Wednesday before arch- rivals Liverpool visit Old Trafford next Sunday.
