The former Red Devils shot-stopper believes a defeat to Sheffield United was down to a goalkeeping mistake and playing with the wrong attitude.

Manchester United last night had the opportunity to return to the top of the Premier League table with a victory against Sheffield United, but with a 2-1 defeat, they stood in the second place.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and David de Gea believe that during the first goal, Sheffield United players made a mistake on the goalkeeper, but Bosnich denied this and believes that Manchester United underestimated their opponent and could have done better.

The former Red Devils goalkeeper told talkSPORT: “For me, I’m sorry, but that wasn’t a foul.

“De Gea was just out-jumped. It was a great delivery and I thought the boy got a run on De Gea and he was just completely out-jumped.

“He hesitated at the beginning and he didn’t get the run that you’d like as a goalkeeper. I thought it was a fair goal.”

Harry Maguire equalized in the 64th minute, but ten minutes later Oliver Burke scored Sheffield's winning goal. Bosnich believes that Manchester United mindset in dealing with their rival were wrong and they underestimated Sheffield.

He did change it but that was only natural with the amount of games coming up and they’ve got another massive one this weekend,

” Bosnich said of the Red Devils tweaking their plans.

“I think it was the attitude, I thought they underestimated Sheffield United. There was that little bit of that attitude, where they thought it was just going to happen.

“You have to give credit to Sheffield United as well, they played really well, they came to Old Trafford with a plan, they hurt Man Utd and they picked up only their second Premier League win of the season.

“It was a massive opportunity for United. At the end of the season you’ll look back at games like this and think we should have really got three points, especially at home where it shouldn’t really be a problem, it should have been swatted away.

“Man Utd do have a history of doing things the tough way, and they’ve given all their supporters hope with how well they’ve done thus far, it was just a very disappointing result.”
