Ole Gunnar Solskjaer trusts the Spaniard and right said De Gea has been United’s best player for the past few years.

Mirror journalist David McDonnell was at Solskjaer’s press conference on Friday morning. He quoted the United manager responding to a question about dropping De Gea.

Solskjaer didn’t entertain the idea.

He is going through a difficult period at the moment – ever since the World Cup last summer – and needs to get his career back on track.

We don’t know if the contractual situation is causing havoc or not… We just want to see De Gea back to his best because not long ago he was the best goalkeeper in the world.

So, a big question on De Gea answered. It sounds like he WILL be starting against Chelsea on Sunday.
