Following United’s defeat on derby, Sir Alex Ferguson has claimed that this is his worst ever defeat but than the experience we had on the field should have meant we conceded fewer goals.

“I can’t believe the scoreline. The first goal was a blow for sure but it was retrievable at 1-0,” he said. “The sending off was a killer for us. We kept attacking when we went 4-1 down and we should have just said: ‘We’ve had our day.’ I thought with the experience we had with Rio Ferdinand and Patrice Evra we would have realised that. But we just kept attacking. We were so open. Sometimes there has to be common sense about it. That’s a perfect result for us to react to. There’s a lot of embarrassment in the dressing room today. They’re all disappointed in there, that will make a difference.”
