Manchester United fans are fed up of relying on goalkeeper David De Gea to keep them in games after he made a couple of stunning saves on Saturday as his side drew 1-1 with Wolverhampton Wanderers at Old Trafford.
In what was yet again a below-par performance by José Mourinho’s men it was De Gea, who earns £200,000-a-week according to Spotrac, who stood out as he has done on so many occasions, keeping some very threatening shots by Wolves out and United in the game.
The Red Devils went into the game on the back of three consecutive wins, two in the Premier League and one in the Champions League, and would’ve bargained on a win over the promoted side, although Wolves have shown that they could be a potential threat to big clubs this season.
United fans have now questioned to commitment and work ethic of the rest of the squad, compared to De Gea’s. Mourinho himself has also copped up a lot of criticism again for not getting the best out of the team. The manager has been receiving some strong remarks by the supporters since the start of the season, following defeats to Brighton & Hove and Tottenham Hotspur.
Here are some of the Twitter reactions by United fans, following Saturday’s match:
He deserves better.

Wish we didn’t need a top showing from him every week tbh

He shouldn’t need to be having top showings every week, especially when we’re playing promoted teams at home, he should be doing barely nothing. Stop showing respect to clubs that don’t deserve it.

We are blessed to have him at the club #DaveSaves
