David De Gea Calls Manchester United 'A Disgrace' In Damning Post-Match Interview After Everton Defeat

David De Gea was the first Manchester United player to leave the dressing room following their lacklustre defeat to Everton on Saturday - and he labelled his own team "a disgrace" in a damning post-match interview.

There was a lot on the line for both clubs at Goodison Park. United, who have struggled in recent weeks, needed a win to stay in the race for a top four spot, while Frank Lampard's side couldn't drop any more points in their bid for Premier League survival.

It was a cagey start to proceedings but after a disappointing midweek defeat against Burnley, the Toffees bounced back with a hard-fought win against Ralf Rangnick's men, as a 27th-minute strike from teenager Anthony Gordon sealed a crucial win.

Despite having good spells of possession throughout, United struggled to pose any sort of attacking threat. Marcus Rashford had a number of chances early on that were parried away by Jordon Pickford but apart from that, it was a poor overall performance.

And after the full-time whistle, Manchester United shot-stopper David de Gea, who has not been afraid to give his opinion in post-match interviews, once again gave an honest assessment of his side's efforts against the Premier League strugglers.

Here is that interview in full.

De Gea said: "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.

"They played Wednesday and they were tired but they had more desire than us, that is not acceptable. Very sad to lose today."

United boss Ralf Rangnick said it will now be "difficult" for the club to qualify for the Champions League after their latest slip up against Everton.

"It's difficult," he told the BBC. "If we don't win our own games it doesn't make sense to hope for good results from the other teams."

He also played down suggestions that their current search for a new manager was a distraction.

"I don't think this should be an excuse," he told BT Sport. "We are Manchester United. We have lots of international players. There shouldn't be an alibi.

"There will be a new manager next season. If this is announced now or in 10 days it shouldn't have an impact."
