Manchester United defender Luke Shaw has claimed at times they get a lot of 'unfair' criticism but admits they have not been at their best in recent times.
The Englishman feels there are other teams that are underperforming but do not get the same criticism, giving an example of Arsenal.
The defender feels the Gunners, who are in the bottom half of the table have largely struggled this season, but are not heavily criticized like they always are.
"They’re just waiting to criticize the moment anything goes wrong but that’s part and parcel of playing for United," he said as quoted by the Mirror.
"No disrespect to Arsenal who are a fantastic club, but they’re not exactly having the greatest of seasons and it’s hardly mentioned.
"I find it quite funny that if it’s United, everyone criticizes, but Arsenal don’t get a mention.
"Look, we know when we haven’t been good enough and at times we haven’t been. We all know why we’re here.
"We’re here to take this club back to where it belongs – winning trophies and challenging for titles. And I honestly believe we’re on the way towards doing so," he added.
United are currently ninth on the log with 35 points, six points off fourth-placed Chelsea, whom they face in a crucial Monday night clash at the Stamford Bridge.
Arsenal, on the other hand, dropped to 11th on 31 points, and remain winless in their last four matches.
They take on Newcastle on Sunday afternoon hoping to pick their first win since New Year's 2-0 win over Manchester United.
