Damning stat surely proves it’s time for Man United to drop first-teamer for promising youngster

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea is under the spotlight again after a poor performance for the club in their 3-3 draw with Everton yesterday.

The Spanish shot-stopper was not entirely convincing as United lost from a commanding position against the Toffees, having initially gone 2-0 up and later 3-2 up.

Although Man Utd’s defence didn’t cover itself in glory either, De Gea could perhaps have done better on the stoppage time equaliser from Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

Squawka show that De Gea conceded from all three shots he faced against Everton last night, giving him the second worst save percentage in the Premier League this season…

United have the promising young Dean Henderson sitting on the bench, and it’s surely time for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to think about promoting him?

De Gea no longer looks the world class goalkeeper he was at his peak, whereas Henderson performed very well on loan at Sheffield United last season and should have his best years ahead of him.

If De Gea carries on like this he’s surely not going to be the Red Devils’ number one for much longer…

    de gea should be benched for man utd to win matches because him has not been consistency on the goal post ,secondly victor linderlof should also be benched because him is very slow at the back line .man utd needed a more aggressive defender at the back line .

    Not only DeGea. Rashford needs to be dropped. Poor decision making, refusal to pass the ball is costing the team. He won’t improve because Solskjaer refuses to drop him or sub him. He was so poor against Everton, but Greenwood gets subbed off? Rashford; Maguire, Fred, Lindeloff not good enough. AWB is a liability. It’s a disgrace that they can’t see off a game. Their inability to keep hold of the ball in the last 10 minutes is a reflection of the mediocre coaching at United. They lacking in basics. Lindelof heads a a ball back into play instead of out for a throw ball? Fred has no idea where the goalmouth is. He always kicks way out. Still think he’s a United player? He gives away possession at key moments. The current manager is not correcting these things. He is happy with mediocrity.

      So you clearly have no idea about Rashford. The man needs a break i agree but saying that he is not good enough is not true . For the rest I totally agree specially Fred and Lindehof. But would you like Alex in there. Not a change he was yesterday eas
      ly the worst player on both sides

    I don’t know what’s wrong with solskjaer, De gea is not good enough. He caused all the three goals, he should play Henderson. I keep saying this, Henderson is far better than De gea. We’re losing points by the day and Ole is still playing David but David in turn does not offer us anything. If man utd want to start wining games , it’s high time Solskjaer drops De gea and give us Dean, it’s Henderson we want not De gea. We want to win the league this season for God sake. Ole, a word is enough for the wise!

    sod you truth hurts right

    I agree with all the above except the omission of Tuanzebe. He is an absolute disaster and should not be stealing a salary. Bad decision on Ole’s part bringing him on – it cost us two points.

  7. Rich Gee says:

    Drop him he is now useless no excuses for such a low save ratio
