Gary Neville explains how David de Gea can return to form

Gary Neville believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has no choice but to drop David de Gea following his error vs Chelsea.

Manchester United started the fixture fantastically, even grabbing the opener after some neat play from Romelu Lukaku, Luke Shaw and Juan Mata.

With Solskjaer’s men in control of the match, De Gea couldn’t hold onto a long range effort from Antonio Rudiger with Marcos Alonso pouncing to level the tie.

After that, United couldn’t push on to grab the match-winner and fans were split over their feelings towards the goalkeeper.

Neville was clear with what David needs to do to recover his best form however, believing a break is much needed.

The Spaniard has been the Red Devils’ best player in the post-Sir Alex Ferguson era but is currently enduring his worst form since.

Even De Gea’s initial struggle to adapt to English football was less error-strewn than how he’s currently playing.

Sir Alex opted to protect the former Atletico Madrid man back then and he has since gone on to become the world’s best in his position.

However, David did endure another blip in form under Louis van Gaal who once again dropped him under his future was clear amid Real Madrid’s interest.
