“It wasn’t enough [the chances created in the second half]. The first half was embarrassing, like I said before. We need to start again from the first minute, not from the second half. Yeah, I don’t have much more to say.
“It’s hard to see, the fans shouting and be always with us; it’s very tough. Sorry again, at the moment we are in a tough position but we are going to fight to keep winning games and put the team again in the top.”
On the impact of Donny van de Beek, who came off the bench at half-time and scored United’s only goal, De Gea commented:
“Yeah, he’s been great, he showed character, passion. I’m very happy for him, he deserves it. He played very good. We are a team and as a team we were very, very poor. Yeah, it’s been a difficult month for us. It’s time to think, to see what we are doing wrong because it’s a nightmare after a nightmare after a nightmare, so it’s very tough.”
