Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has claimed he thought Newcastle United star Joelinton had scored after he headed on to the bar and then his rebound crashed against the post.

Manchester United played out a goalless draw against Newcastle United at Old Trafford on Sunday.

De Gea said: “That was crazy, as soon as I saw the first hit the bar and the ball going to him again I said ‘it must be a goal’ and then it hits the post.

“This is football, sometimes the ball likes to come in sometimes not and I think we deserved a bit more than them. We created more bigger chances than them and the team gave totally everything today.”
