De Gea slams Man Utd after loss at Everton: 'A disgrace - we're not good enough'

David de Gea described Manchester United's 1-0 defeat to relegation-threatened Everton as "a disgrace" after their season reached a new low at Goodison Park.

The United goalkeeper pulled no punches after seeing a deflected Anthony Gordon goal inflict his side's third defeat in five matches - a run which includes just one win - and further dent their top-four hopes.

"It's a disgrace from us, to be honest, we should win the game," De Gea told BT Sport.

"We don't create, that's the problem. We don't even create proper chances to score. I don't know what to say, to be honest.

"We're not good enough, that's for sure. It's going to be very difficult now to be in the top four."

United, who last played a week ago as they drew 1-1 with Leicester, were outfought by Everton despite the hosts having just two full days of recovery following Wednesday's crushing 3-2 defeat to relegation rivals Burnley.

"We knew before they were struggling, but how difficult it is to play here even when they are not in a good mood, but they play with more desire," he said.

"Of course it's not the perfect atmosphere. But you could see they were tired, they were nervous, and come on, they keep going and keep fighting to win. They had more desire than us. That is not acceptable, and it's very sad to lose today."
