"For me, we created enough chances to win the game. It was a tight game against a good team, of course, but I think we deserved a bit more," he told MUTV.

"I think we had two or three big chances, especially with Rashy, but the keeper saves them. That is fine and, like I said before, we deserve a bit more.

"It was a tough game and now we need to look forward to the next game."

The clean sheet for United was their first in the Premier League this season and De Gea, who had just the one save to make, considers that a big positive to take from the game.

"I think for us it is very important to start to keep clean sheets, especially at home," he said. "Today we defended really well and didn't concede many chances.

Bruno Fernandes is the leader Manchester United have been missing

  Bruno Fernandes is the leader Manchester United have been missing JACK GAUGHAN: It was converted into a gif instantaneously, the reaction of Bruno Fernandes sat inside an empty Parc des Princes when Solskjaer revealed his captain for the night. If Fernandes knew already then he did a good job of hiding it, raising both eyebrows and trying fairly hard to conceal a wide smile. He will lead Manchester United out against Paris Saint-Germain, at the scene of their best night under Solskjaer back in 2019.'I was not expecting this - I found out this the same time as you!' the Portuguese said in a press conference.

For De Gea , it is the most difficult spell he has endured since joining the Old Trafford club from Atletico Madrid in 2011. The Spaniard won the Premier League But even more hilarious than that: they now want common criminal Roy Keane - the man who relegated Sunderland and Ipswich - to replace him.

"We always try in every training session to improve, to make the team better defensively, work with each other, and talk to each other.

"It was important today to get a clean sheet against a top team like the one we played today. That's the way to keep going and the way to win games."

Mendy nearly scored an own goal with one stray early pass but was otherwise impressive in his fourth outing for the club, earning particular praise from Frank Lampard after the game.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer also picked out the 28-year-old as the game's key player as he became the first Chelsea keeper to keep a clean sheet in both of his first two league games for the club since Petr Cech in August 2004.

"There were two good teams on display, with quality at either end of the pitch," he told MUTV.

"You can see their keeper today, I think he's the match-winner with those two fantastic saves from Marcus.

"The one in the second half, an unbelievable save. I'm standing just behind it and following it to the top corner. Great finish, great save.

"The first one was well blocked with his right foot. So I think it's an even game. I think we started a bit slow and didn't really put our authority on the game, but after about 20, 25 minutes I felt we took over and built pressure.

"I've just got to praise their keeper because those two saves are fantastic."
