Robin van Persie has revealed that Manchester United players held a "confrontational" inquest after their devastating 5-3 defeat by Leicester City last Sunday.

United twice surrendered a two-goal lead in the shocking collapse at the King Power Stadium, and with five points from five Premier League matches, the club have made their worst start to a Premier League season. Far the start that Louis van Gaal would have hoped for.

"It shouldn't be possible [to lose like we did]. But it still happened. We have to deal with it," the Dutch striker told Fox Sports News.

"We had a proper look at it the next day. Sometimes it was a bit confronting and it was a long meeting. One hour [or] something.


"We went from there, started again this week [and have put] a couple of really good sessions in. Everyone feels ready to face West Ham [on Saturday]."
