David de Gea criticised his Manchester United teammates after their 1-0 defeat at Everton and said the team are “not good enough.”
United produced a woeful display at Goodison Park on Saturday and remain in seventh place in the Premier League table with their top-four hopes fading.
Everton, who are battling relegation this season, were comfortable throughout the second-half and De Gea delivered a withering assessment of United’s performance.
He told BT Sport in his postmatch interview:
We knew before today they were struggling and how difficult it was going to be. We don’t score, 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.
Of course it’s not the perfect atmosphere. They were tired, they were nervous, but they keep going and keep fighting. They had more desire than us, which is not acceptable. It’s very sad to lose today.
