David de Gea has broken silence on defeat in the Manchester derby – by delivering a three-word message to Manchester United supporters.
Conceding seven goals in those two games without scoring, question marks remain over Solskjaer and his position at the Old Trafford helm.
Meanwhile, those defeats have all but ended any dreams of recapturing the top-flight crown this season.
United haven’t got their hands on the big one since legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013.
Long-serving De Gea was part of that last triumphant side – while the Spaniard has, generally, returned to his best form between the posts at Old Trafford and beyond this campaign.
He was powerless to prevent City earlier this afternoon, though, as an own goal from Eric Bailly and a fine finish from Bernardo Silva settled the scores in favour of Pep Guardiola’s star-studded reigning champions.
United and their Norwegian manager have, meanwhile, come in for heavy criticism once again in the aftermath.
But what is the verdict from inside the home dressing room?

Addressing his 13.4million followers on social media platform Twitter, De Gea said: “I am hurt.”
Posted around seven hours after full-time, the message has already received thousands and thousands of likes and retweets, while United fans have issued their own thoughts with replies to the former Atletico Madrid goalkeeper.
As a result of their fourth defeat of the season, the Old Trafford giants are now nine points adrift of table-toppers Chelsea, who draw against plucky Burnley at Stamford Bridge.
