The Spaniard received fierce criticism after a performance in the match between Tottenham and Man United. Even his official position is shaken.
On June 20, Tottenham and Man United drew 1-1 in the Premier League. 27 minutes into the match, Steven Bergwijn broke through and took a shot from the edge of the area. The ball is stretched but not of high difficulty. Goalkeeper David de Gea touched the ball but flew straight into the net.
This is not the first time De Gea has made a mistake this season. He ranked 3rd in the list of those who make mistakes directly leading to goals, less than the leader only one error. This shows that the goalkeeper position is really shaky at Old Trafford.
De Gea was one of the worst players on the United side against Tottenham
When performance declines for about 6 months, that is normal. This problem lasts a year, you will start to worry. And when the number is 2 years, it will be difficult for players to find their peak performance, “Goal quoted Gary Neville, a member of the 1992 generation of United.
According to Neville, De Gea began to decline from the 2018 World Cup in Russia. In this tournament, he made many mistakes and showed a lack of confidence.
Meanwhile, Roy Keane, the exemplary former captain of Man United, was angry after witnessing the goal against Tottenham.
On social networks, many Man United fans are also angry, disappointed with what De Gea has shown. They even compared him to Loris Karius, who caused Liverpool to fail in the 2017/18 Champions League final with two serious mistakes.
Concerns from Dean Henderson
In the last 9 shots on the opponent’s goal, De Gea received 6 goals. This is an alarming number. He is still considered to be the mainstay of Man United, earning the top salary of the team at £ 375,000 per week. However, in a big team like “Red Devils”, Dea Gea is not inviolable.
The Spanish goalkeeper is likely to face fierce competition from Dean Henderson, the talent being sent by Man United to “train” in Sheffield United.
Henderson’s top performer was clearly Henderson
In Sheffield shirt, Henderson is showing great performances. He led the list of 11 clean sheets against the Premier League, equal to Burn Pope’s Nick Pope and Liverpool’s Alisson Becker. In addition, the goalkeeper born in 1997 also has a successful time to prevent the penalty.
