Video: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gives verdict on critical David De Gea mistake v Tottenham

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says individual errors are ‘to be expected’ after his side’s 1-1 draw against Tottenham on their Premier League return.

Tottenham took the lead through Dutch forward Steven Bergwijn midway through the first-half and the role of several United players in the goal must come into question.

Initially, Luke Shaw’s aimless header allowed Spurs possession and Bergwijn capitalised with a marauding run through the middle of United’s defence.

Bergwijn then glided past captain Harry Maguire before firing a shot past David De Gea that undoubtedly should have been saved.

Despite being struck fiercely, the shot was close enough for a player of De Gea’s class to deal with it comfortably.

But, unsurprisingly, Solskjaer refused to lay into any of his United players, just conceding that it was a disappointing goal to give away.

Bruno Fernandes salavate a 1-1 draw from the penalty spot late on against a resolute and organised Spurs side.
