Manchester United fans were split over their reaction to David de Gea‘s error during his performance vs Chelsea.
The Spaniard has looked a shadow of himself over the past few games with some supporters running out of patience.
The goalkeeper is widely regarded as the best in the world in his position but his latest form has seen the debate start over again.
De Gea has saved United countless times in the past but lately he’s been costing them points with the Blues’ pouncing on his mistake to level the tie 1-1.
Unfortunately Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s men didn’t have enough about them to win press on and win the fixture, leaving fans with mixed feelings towards their star player.
De Gea has saved us time and again. I’d still offer him anything he wanted to stay longer. But it was another awful mistake. Just wonder what is going on with him to keep making him cock up.

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.

Stand by your players yeah, get that, but it’s only right to point out when players have cost us points. We’ve all slated Young rightly but now no matter how much we love him, De Gea has cost us the chance at Top 4 we had in the latter stages of this Ole takeover. #mufc

They were on the ropes in the first half and De Gea’s mistake let them back in. We’ve completely run out of steam now.

Re De Gea, I’ll never slate the bloke. He kept #MUFC in the top half of the league for 5 years. But I did suggest before the Mcr Derby that a rest was in order, especially if he’s stalling with his contract negotiations. Poor form aside, nobody should ever hold our club to ransom

There’s been talk over David’s form with many believing it has to do with his current contract negotiations.
It’s hard to deny that is the cause for his lapses in concentration as the last time he was putting in such poor performances, it was due to Real Madrid’s interest.
