United 'nowhere near good enough'.

Byline: Lee Ryder Chief Sports Writer @lee_ryder

STEVE MCCLAREN has warned his players they were nowhere near good enough against Leicester City.

United's head coach begins the inquest at the club's Benton base today after the Foxes picked up an easy 3-0 win at St James' Park.

McClaren has now lost seven Premier League games since taking over, and faces Crystal Palace, then Liverpool, in his next two games.

After Saturday's defeat, McClaren said: "We've had a big setback, that was nowhere near good enough.

"All we can do is lick our wounds, work hard and make sure we're better next week.

"We know we've got the talent, but we have got to fight for that every day."

The victory put Leicester top of the Premier League and McClaren reflected: "It was a team performance. They were very well organised and didn't allow us to play.

"We couldn't handle it.

I can give nothing but praise to Leicester."

United's next game, at Crystal Palace, is a 3pm kick-off on Saturday.
