Manchester United goalkeeper, David de Gea, held nothing back in a scathing assessment of his team's performance against Newcastle.

A debut goal from teenage midfielder, Matty Longstaff, condemned the Red Devils to a 1-0 defeat against the Magpies in the late kick-off of Premier League match week 8 games.

It was United's third defeat of the season and the eleventh game in which they have failed to get a win away from home since that miraculous Champions League win in Paris against PSG last season.

The string of poor performances has become unbearable for United fans who are now calling for Solskjaer's sack while David de Gea has admitted this is his worse time at the club.

"We didn't create any proper chances,” a frustrated De Gea fumed on Sky Sports. “We defended well. The team needs to step up.

“We have some big injuries but that’s no excuse. We are Manchester United, we need to keep training hard, fighting and winning games."

United's next game is against Premier League leaders after the international break. Jurgen Klopp's men have a hundred per cent start to the season, winning their first 8 games.

Solskjaer would have to do a major surgery on his team before then if they are to stand any chance in that game.

When asked what they had to improve before hosting their arch-rival, De Gea replied bluntly: "Everything. A lot of things to improve. I don’t know what to say.

“Keep trying, fighting, improving every day. It’s a hard moment for us.

"[This is] the most difficult time since I’ve been here. I don’t know why, what is happening. Sorry to the fans. We will keep fighting.

"Come on, we conceded a goal from a corner. That cannot happen. It’s unacceptable."
