What's gone wrong for Manchester United goalkeeper?

"If they win the Europa League then they are back in the Champions League wherever they finish in the league, and that will be a very good season for Unai Emery's side". It should be noted that the 28-year-old made an excellent clawing save to deny substitute Michail Antonio's header shortly before Paul Pogba's second penalty of the game gave United a scarcely-deserved 2-1 win.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer backed de Gea, saying he has the strength of character to rebound from his slump.

Romelu Lukaku admits he is unsure what his Manchester United future holds beyond this season.

The Norwegian also added that the goalkeeper can not take the blame for the team's struggles and that he has no intention of dropping him for the final two games of the season.

Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea reportedly apologised to his teammates at half time during the 1-1 draw with Chelsea.

But Pochettino's main target at the start of the season was probably just to finish in the top four and I am pretty confident they will get what they need to do that, and raise their game when they play Ajax in the semi-final too. Solskjaer, for his part, is standing by his man as he said: "There's no chance any of us will point fingers because he's saved us so many times".

However, Romero then made way for De Gea when the United star chose to stay at Old Trafford and sign a new contract.

The United goalkeeper has come under pressure in recent weeks and did little to answer his critics when he gifted Chelsea the equaliser just before half-time.

"I don't have any worries about him, because he's a strong character", Solskjaer said.

While there has been much talk of Sergio Romero's quality as a back-up keeper, the Argentine has hardly been infallible when he has had a run in the side during his four years at the club.

He has made vital errors in games of late but so did Lev Yashin and Dino Zoff and Gordon Banks.

"Chelsea has to play in the Champions League every year", he told Sky Sports (as reported).

Indeed, De Gea probably wants this season to be over already.
