Manchester United fans on Twitter have given David de Gea their backing during a difficult time for the keeper, after he made yet another error when he spilled Antonio Rudiger’s shot and allowed Marcos Alonso to prod in.
The former Atletico Madrid man has now made a number of errors over the last month. De Gea started by allowing Lionel Messi’s tame effort to slip under him in the Champions League quarter-final, before allowing four goals to go past him in the 4-0 loss to Everton.

He then could have done better with Leroy Sane’s match-winning strike in the Manchester derby, and his latest mishap has now led to a number of fans criticising him once again.
However, despite these mistakes, which even caused a portion of the United fanbase to demand he be sold earlier in the week, some fans on Twitter have opted to defend the man who has saved them countless points in the past with some unbelievable stops…
The majority of fans turning on David de Gea, our fan base is a joke. The man has saved us from humiliation for the past 5 years and now that he’s showing bad form you lot want him out? What a disgrace.

We’ll always stick with De Gea after all he’s done for the club. Still the best in the world on his day 🧤 #MUFC_FAMILY

De Gea might well cost us top 4 this year, but he’s been our best player and most consistent performer for the last 6 years. If you want him sold off a few poor weeks, you’re deluded. Our season hasn’t warranted a top 4 finish anyway, we’re fortunate to even be in the race. #mufc

De Gea mistake shouldn't be the point. How many times has that legend saved us over the years? He screws up today and this lot still can't bring us over the line when he desperately needed them to. We know his head's gone, but question the rest of them too. They didn't want it.

To all the united fans slating de gea you’re all brainless. He’s easily saved us at least 10 pts a season for the past five years. He just needs to clear his head #mufc

Season over, it’s been a shambles overall. Players don’t look like they care at the end there, should all be devastated. No champions league means we won’t attract the very best players easily. Stop moaning at De Gea – he’s held this club on his shoulders, for 4 years. #mufc
