Luke Shaw has identified how new signings can motivate the squad – like Bruno Fernandes did when he joined Manchester United.
Prior to the international break, the Red Devils were thrashed by Tottenham at Old Trafford in a 6-1 result.
It topped off a shoddy start to the season, where United were also beaten by Crystal Palace.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has come under serious fire amid reports Mauricio Pochettino has been sounded out over joining.
But the Norweigan is not the only one to be criticised, with several players also under the microscope.
Among them include Harry Maguire, Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw – but the latter has insisted good times on the horizon.
And it is down to a busy deadline day, that saw three players join.
Alex Telles, Edinson Cavani and Facundo Pellestri made the move, while highly-rated Atalanta star Amad Diallo will join in January.
Shaw argue that the new faces at Old Trafford will provide a welcome boost to the squad, just like Fernandes did when he signed in January.
“I think, personally, it still hurts a bit now,“ he said of the defeat to Spurs.
”It was a horrible night. Personally, and collectively as a team, it wasn’t good enough.
“I think it’s been a week where the first day back was quiet and heads were down but we’ve realised we need to put it behind us and forget about that.
"All we can do now is work hard to get back to the intensity we have had. When we do that, we are a very dangerous team.
“We’ve got a few new arrivals in and that can maybe boost the morale of the squad and bring something different.
"Fresh faces are sometimes a good thing. Like we saw with Bruno [Fernandes], it can change completely the mood of a squad.”
