De Gea, Mata and more: Man United players take to Twitter after Liverpool win

David De Gea and Juan Mata take to Twitter after Manchester United's 1-0 victory over Liverpool on Sunday

Adam Lallana had the best chance of the first half in Sunday’s early kick-off but David De Gea managed to smother the England midfielder’s attempt.

Liverpool midfielder Emre Can and Roberto Firmino were also thwarted by the United goalkeeper before Rooney netted with 12 minutes remaining on Merseyside.
