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.
