CALAMITY DAVE: David de Gea Officially The Worst Keeper In EPL After Error In Spurs Draw


DAVID DE GEA is officially the most error-prone goalkeeper in the
Premier League.

His error on Friday night to allow Steven Bergwijn's weak strike in
was his seventh conspicuous mistake leading to a goal in the Premier
League since the beginning of last season.

No other stopper currently in English Premier League has made more
mistakes leading to their side conceding than the Manchester United
No1.

 


1.       Martin Dubravka and Jordan Pickford both have identical
records of seven errors in 67 games, while Bernd Leno has the same
number in 61 appearances.

2.       Asmir Begovic, meanwhile, has five in just 24 games.

Ex-United captain Roy Keane laid into the Spaniard with a brutal
assessment on Sky Sports.

He furiously said: "It's a massive defensive error - three people
involved and De Gea can do much better.

"I'm shocked by that goal. I've watched a lot of games and to concede
that goal I'm fuming.

“…I'm sick to death of this goalkeeper. "I would be fighting him at
half-time, I would be swinging punches at that guy. I am
flabbergasted. "Maguire and De Gea should hang their heads in shame.
De Gea is the most overrated goalkeeper I've seen in a long, long
time."

And it is not the only high-profile De Gea, 29, has made this season,
despite signing a fresh £375,000-a-week, four-year contract earlier in
the campaign.

Against Watford back in December, the Spaniard somehow managed to drop
the ball in.

And then in March he was back to his calamitous antics as he dawdled
on a back-pass for far too long and once he eventually got his
clearance away, Everton's Dominic Calvert-Lewin had pressed and the
ball ricocheted off the English striker into the back of the net.

Manchester United may well already have the long-term replacement for
De Gea at the club already.

Dean Henderson has earned plenty of plaudits during his two seasons on
loan at Sheffield United, helping them to promotion back into the
Premier League and now pushing for a European place. And he is bossing
the current United No1 across almost every significant stat this
season.
