The Spanish goalkeeper let slip a shot from Josh Dasilva for Brentford’s opening goal  

‘I want to take responsibility.’ De Gea said.    

‘I think I cost my team two points. It was a poor performance from me. I think so. That can happen in football. 

‘We should react better but I should have saved the first shot. If I had the first result might be different. Maybe I have to read the game better and kick it long. We always try to play we always try to have the ball. 

‘We are not like other teams. We see teams concede a goal and then win 5-1. For us I made a mistake and it may have changed the result.’

New manager Erik ten Hag rang the changes at the break, removing new signing Lisandro Martinez and replacing him with Raphael Varane.

However, they failed to salvage something from the game and Brentford comfortably saw the second half out to record a famous Premier League win. 

De Ge admits that his side had it too easy in pre-season and that the teams around the Red Devils have improved, while United have stood still.    

‘It is too easy to play pre-season when you play for nothing’. The Spaniard continued. 

‘I need to keep working as much as I can. We stick together as a team and keep working.

‘We have a lot to learn from the manager. I’m not sure to be honest. Teams are improving a lot and we stay where we are. It was a good pre-season but it is not enough. We need to play for the badge and play for the club’
