Cape Town - Paul Pogba has apologised to the Manchester United fans and says the mentality of the players has to change in the wake of the Everton defeat.

Alarm bells are ringing following the 4-0 defeat against the Toffees, their third loss in five games, which left them sitting sixth in the Premier League with four games to go.

The feel-good factor that was produced from a fine run of results under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer when he first took charge, has now disappeared and the finger is again being pointed at more than one United player.

United now face Manchester City on Wednesday night, and one of the players who has been criticised, Pogba, admits things have to change quickly.

"The way we played and the performance of myself, of the team, of everyone is disrespectful," Pogba told Sky Sports.

"Everything went wrong, but the mentality on the pitch has to change."

United are three points behind third-placed Tottenham and fourth-placed Chelsea and two behind fifth-placed Arsenal, and will miss out on a place in the Champions League unless there is a dramatic improvement in form and other results go their way.
