While fans complain about Manchester United’s lack of transfer activity, David de Gea is working at proving his critics wrong in the background.
A lot was written about the Spaniard last season to suggest he was past it, damaged goods and should be replaced by Dean Henderson.
I’m a fan of De Gea who accepts that he hasn’t been very good over the past two years. Nowhere near his best.
At the same time, I am hopeful that having Henderson around will keep De Gea on his toes because Sergio Romero was hardly hammering down Solskjaer’s door for games last season.
De Gea made an important save in the second half to stop Leandro Trossard scoring for Brighton.
Watch the save below, footage courtesy of BT Sport:
You could say the shot was straight at De Gea, but he kept it out and that’s what matters most!
Brighton had a number of chances and hit the woodwork a whopping five times throughout the match (as per ESPN).
Brighton are the first team to hit the woodwork FIVE times in a Premier League game since records began.
Need Jose to check if those goal frames are regulation! 💥 pic.twitter.com/pxGyXzwrF7
