Anthony Martial still one for the future, says his manager

United announced on their official Twitter account: “David de Gea has signed a new four-year contract at #mufc with an option to extend for a further year”.


“I feel really well, I would like to say thank you to the fans for their support”, De Gea told MUTV. All the players are communicating with me.

‘All the meetings and sessions on the training ground have paid off, ‘ he smirked.

“He’s been with us for three days, that is too short to judge his personality, but he made a very good impression in first three days”.

“You are never happy when you lose a game especially to your rival”.

Neville believes it is a key moment for Van Gaal to have kept De Gea at the club, and expects the 24-year-old to have a big impact on United’s season.

“It was a fantastic individual bit of skill, (there was) maybe a bit of luck in there as well, but the way he finished it was incredible and it’s a great start from him“, United winger Young said of the £36m teenager.

Ander Herrera’s penalty made it 2-0 before Christian Benteke threatened to lead an undeserved Liverpool fightback with an overhead kick.

“We have scouted him and we wanted him because he’s the best in his age, he needs time“, he said.

Brendan Rodgers was taunted with chants of “you’re getting sacked in the morning” as he left Old Trafford.

Liverpool’s strong start is now a thing of the past. “We are still looking to find that way…to get that balance in the team”.

Liverpool, who have avoided defeat on just one of their last nine visits to the Theatre of Dreams, did show signs of growing into the game when Nathaniel Clyne sliced wide from range 20 minutes in.

“Technically we need to be better in order to keep the ball more“.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was the first ever United player to score on his league debut after coming on as a substitute against Blackburn Rovers at Old Trafford in August 1996.


The Red Devils are now riding high in the early season standings after Saturday’s 3-1 victory over Liverpool moved them to 10 points from their opening five league games.
