Manchester United fans react to David de Gea’s display against Manchester City

A selection of Manchester United fans sympathised with goalkeeper David de Gea following the club’s disappointing 2-0 Premier League defeat to Manchester City.

The Red Devils recently ended a four-match winless league streak against Tottenham Hotspur (3-0 win), and it appeared that they had turned the corner.

However, they were completely outclassed by their arch-rivals in the Manchester derby, registering just one shot on target throughout the encounter.

City were handed an early seventh-minute lead through an Eric Bailly own goal.

Before the interval, Bernardo Silva doubled the advantage after Luke Shaw failed to clear his lines.

Before that goal, De Gea came up with a string of quality saves to keep Red Devils in the game.

The €18 million-rated star showed terrific reflexes to block Gabriel Jesus’ close-range effort.

Despite his best efforts, United were no match for the reigning English champions.

They failed to manage a touch in the opposition box in the second half until stoppage time.

Following the game, there has been criticism pointed towards manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but some fans have also heaped praise on De Gea for keeping the scoreline respectable.

Here are a few reactions on Twitter.

United have now lost four of the previous six league games.

They are already nine points adrift of the top of the table after just 11 matches into the campaign.

There were huge question marks over Solskjaer’s future last month before the 3-0 win at Spurs.

The board gave the vote of confidence, and the Norwegian could continue at the helm.
