“I think it’s simple. They play much better than us, they had more chances than us, they fight more than us, they want more than us. I think it was embarrassing the first half, to be honest.

“We concede a lot of chances; we could have conceded four goals in the first half. It’s not acceptable the level that we showed today.

“It was great for me at the beginning of the game. I make the two saves and say ‘come on now, we have a big chance to win the game’ but then we keep conceding chances, keep conceding easy goals, again and again. I don’t know what to say. We’re in a difficult moment. Sorry again, once again to the fans. That is not acceptable from us.

United were incredible in the second half even after Harry Maguire got a red card but De Gea stated the second half chance were not enough.

“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 Van De Beek.

“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.”
