Louis van Gaal: You cannot say De Gea was a fantastic, marvelous goalkeeper today


Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal says victory over Liverpool is a big step forward for his side.

The Red Devils needed a brilliant performance from goalkeeper David De Gea to block all that the hosts threw at them although the Dutchman was not particularly impressed with the performance of the 25-year-old.

"When you beat Liverpool, it is good for the fans and for the table as our competitors also lose points, it is a big step in a good direction and I am very happy," van Gaal told Sky Sports.

"In the first-half we didn't keep the ball and we have survived the first-half.

"In the second-half we played much better and kept the ball better and created chances and Wayne Rooney makes the fantastic goal again.

"I don't think David de Gea has done very much, two or three balls he has to stop, a goalkeeper has to do that. He is playing very good but you can not say he was a fantastic, marvelous goalkeeper today.

"We have played against Newcastle and given away two leads and now we have done the things we have trained and discussed so that is most precious aspect of the game today.

"We won and a we have won a lot of games in 2016 now and have not lost yet."
