World-class talents De Gea, Rooney have ability to pinch results for United – Schmeichel

Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel believes that in David De Gea and Wayne Rooney, United have players who can turn the game on its head.

Both players played key roles in United’s 1-0 away victory over Liverpool on Sunday, prompting words of praise from the Old Trafford great.

“If you have world-class players like De Gea and Rooney, sometimes you can ride out the storm and do what they have done today,” said Schmeichel on Sky Sports.

“It’s the way football is being played in this country at the moment.”

“Not a lot of things happening in games, then you get a set piece, the other team switches off slightly and United took advantage.”

“It’s three very unexpected points, I don’t think United played very well at all.”
