David de Gea will keep his place between the sticks for Manchester United’s Premier League meeting with Huddersfield Town.
Not that it would have made any difference, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed at Friday’s press conference that Sergio Romero was ruled out after suffering a knee injury on Thursday.
That should see former Stoke City goalkeeper Lee Grant named as a substitute for the clash.
Asked whether De Gea would start at the John Smith’s Stadium, the United manager said, as per The Standard: “I would think so, yeah, or he will play.
“Sergio was injured yesterday so didn’t train, tweaked his knee, so David’s been training well this week.
“He’s been fantastic this season. Towards the end, now he’s been in the headlines for the wrong reasons, but he has to deal with that.
“The goalkeeping department are fantastic – a tight-knit group. They’ve experienced better times than just now, but he’s ready for Sunday.”
OGS made it clear when asked a week or so ago when De Gea was starting to go through this blip. The No.1 would keep his place as the team stand by him through thick and thin.
After all, that’s what De Gea has done for us as a keeper all these years.
He’s one of the best in the business, so it’s in our interest to help get him back to those silly high standards.
Romero is probably the league’s best second choice keeper and I wouldn’t be concerned if he had to call upon him at some stage, though United have just two games remaining this season.
Great way to recover from injury is on some sunny beach, right?
