Manchester United goalkeeper, De Gea has labelled their defeat to Everton a ‘disgrace’ in a damming post-match interview.

An Anthony Gordon’s strike was deflected in by Manchester United’s defender and captain, Harry Maguire, to give Everton the lead in the 27th minute.

“It is a disgrace from us to be honest, we should be winning this game. We don’t score but we don’t create proper chances to score. We are not good enough, that is for sure. It will be difficult to be in the top four. De Gea said to BT sport after the game.

“They played Wednesday and they were tired but they had more desire than us, that is not acceptable. Very sad to lose today. The Spanish shot-stopper concluded.

Frank Lampard who is the first Everton manager to lose seven of his first nine games, was full of praises for his team.

“I’m very proud. You know, these are pressure times. Where we are is the reality of the situation but at Goodison we’ve been good. That’s our fifth win in seven [at home] and we’ve been keeping clean sheets.

“Away from home is a different aspect but when we come together, fans and players alike, then we’re hard to beat here.

“It all starts with our physical output, our contact, our fighting spirit … because that’s what fans demand here. And rightly so and they got today from minute one to minute 95.” The former Chelsea coach added.
