Manchester United fans took to Twitter this evening to question David De Gea’s attempt at saving Sergio Aguero’s goal in their clash against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.
The home side took the lead in the first half through a fine goal from David Silva, with Aguero’s strike then doubling their lead just minutes after half time.
United then got back into the game thanks Anthony Martial, as he converted from the penalty spot after Romelu Lukaku was fouled by Ederson.
However, the main talking point between United fans seems to be regarding goalkeeper De Gea, with a lot of fans being critical of his attempts to keep out Aguero’s effort early in the second half.
The shot came in from a very tight angle and seemed to almost go through the keeper’s hands, so we can see why United fans would have expected the Spaniard to keep out Aguero’s effort, even if it meant parrying the ball out for a corner.
The moment did end up proving a pretty costly one as United couldn’t find a way back into the game despite halving the deficit not long afterwards, with City then picking up a third.
Normally so dependable, De Gea’s role in the defeat today is now being picked apart by a section of angry fans on social media.
We can see where they’re coming from to be fair…
Not think De Gea should be doing better?

De Gea should have done better but we won’t be talking about this if Lingard could just control a simple ball
