Manchester United reacted well after a humiliating 5-0 defeat to Liverpool at Old Trafford and drew crucially with Atalanta after a 3-0 win over Tottenham in London. However, Manchester United defender Luke Shaw believes that his teammates still have to work hard and keep their attitude high.
We have to keep this attitude,"
he told beIN SPORTS.
"I think just because we beat Spurs 3-0 and we picked up a point here, we can't put our heads down, we can't get comfortable
"We can't think, 'we've done it now, we've got out of our rut and everything's perfect, everything's fine'. It's not.
"We know we need to dig deep. We know we're not in a good situation, we know what we've been doing hasn't been good enough.
"As a team we've talked about that inside the dressing room, so the games didn't come any easier, so we need to be ready for this one [the City game] because it's at home and it's a big game."
United failed to reach the knockout stages last season, but Shaw believes they have learned a lot from last season and know that even one point is crucial.
"I think if you look at it, if you look at the group, [this was] an important point,"
"Of course, it's not what we wanted, we wanted three points, but I think you have to look at the way the game went and the score towards the end, I think you would take a point in this situation.
"We know we've still got a lot to improve on. You know the results the last couple of games have been a bit better, but we've still got work to do and we're sort of in charge of our own group now."
He added to MUTV: "
We obviously learnt from last year really, we needed to. We don't want to be in that situation again
