The 22-year-old wrote: "First and foremost I'm a United fan
"This is my club. I'm so proud to wear this shirt but there are no excuses, it's just not good enough.
And to every single fans around the world that tuned in today, I'm just so sorry.
"You deserve so much better than that.
"I would have stayed away from social media tonight but you deserve to hear from me during the highs and the lows, there is no hiding.
"I feel horrible but I promise you we will do better."
After the game, United legend Gary Neville pulled no punches in a damning assessment, blasting the players as 'spineless' and 'absolutely pathetic'.
The defending was calamitous and the lack of leadership was evident as former boss Jose Mourinho got one over on his former employers in emphatic style.
Neville, who was analysing the game on Sky Sports, was fuming at the manner of defeat and says there is "no excuse" for that performance.
The 45-year-old told Sky Sports: "I can't believe we are where we are.
"There's no excuse for those players on that pitch because they were absolutely pathetic. Spineless in that second half.
"I think these players expected to get help [in the transfer window] but they've not helped themselves.
"City and Liverpool pulled away psychologically before the season even started."
