David De Gea has come under fire in recent weeks for a number of mistakes in big games
David De Gea was under more pressure following another mistake leading to a goal on Sunday against Chelsea.
He should have done better with Antonio Rudiger’s shot than palmed it into the path of Marcos Alonso, who scored to make it 1-1.
David De Gea made a costly error against Chelsea
The Manchester United goalkeeper has made three errors leading to goals in four games, in all competitions.
His three previous errors came in 129 appearances and there have even been calls for him to be dropped.
The 28-year-old was at fault for a Barcelona goal as they were dumped out of the Champions League.
He then should have done better with a Leroy Sane shot in the Manchester derby last week as they were beaten 2-0.
De Gea’s mistake proved costly
De Gea has not made the most errors leading to goals, though, in the Premier League this season.
Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson has even made more than the United stopper.
Here are the players with the most errors leading to goals in the Premier League.
