Rafael da Silva has admitted that Manchester United are hurting after successive losses to Everton and Newcastle United at Old Trafford.

The defending Premier League champions trail fourth-placed Manchester City by seven points, whilst the Red Devils are a further 13 points behind current top-flight leaders Arsenal.

We must work more and improve ourselves

Rafael da Silva

United hadn’t lost back-to-back games at Old Trafford since 2002 and David Moyes’ men face Ukrainian champions Shakhtar Donetsk at home in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

Brazil international Rafael believes United need to rediscover their confidence if they are to end their current losing run.

“Of course it hurts,” said Rafael. “As a United player I want to win every single game.

“We must work more and improve ourselves.

“We have been working in the same way. I think we have been unlucky some games, maybe that is why, since you lose one game you lose a bit of confidence.

“I think we will work the same way and you just have to have a bit of luck some games to try and win and get the confidence back.”
