Ole Reacts To De Gea Howler

Once heralded as the world's best 'keeper, Manchester United shot-stopper David De Gea made yet another high-profile error on Sunday, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has now reacted to the Spaniard's form.

De Gea once again found himself in the firing line this past weekend against Everton after his error led to Dominic Calvert-Lewin opening the scoring in the two sides' 1-1 draw. 

The Spain international received a back pass from teammate Harry Maguire, and then, with time to spare, contrived to clear the ball straight into the onrushing Calvert-Lewin and into the back of the net. 

United later equalized through Bruno Fernandes, but were fortunate to come away with a point after De Gea was wrongfooted and beaten by a deflected strike, only for the goal to be ruled out by VAR for offiside.

Following the match, Solskjaer defended the under-fire 'keeper and insisted that the 29-year-old remains the best in the world in his position.

We want the best possible squad for Man United (and) David for me is the best goalkeeper in the world Solskjaer said as reported by the club's official website.

According to Opta, De Gea has made seven errors leading to goals in the Premier League since last season, which is the joint-most in the competition alongside Newcastle United's Martin Dubravka and Arsenal's Bernd Leno.
