Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea has admitted that his side were second best in Saturday’s Premier League 0-0 draw with Liverpool at Anfield.
Liverpool were dominant against an ultra-defensive Manchester United side set up for a draw by manager Jose Mourinho.
But the hosts could not break down their bitter rivals and had to settle for a share of the spoils.
De Gea, who rescued United with a brilliant save off Joel Matip in the first half, however did not bemoan the lack of victory for his side.
“Every save is important,” De Gea said in his post-match reaction on Sky Sports, referring to the Matip save.
“I’m glad we got a point. Liverpool played better than us.”
United went top of the Premier League table with 20 points from eight matches, while Liverpool are seven points off.Unblock the FIFA World Cup with ExpressVPN the #1 Trusted Name in VPN
