De Gea, who once considered by some fans to be Europe’s finest shot-stopper, allowed a routine shot from Mason Mount to slip through his grasp last weekend, following his failure to stop a close-range strike from Olivier Giroud at Wembley.
According to The Times, as per @utdreport, Solskjaer could look to replace the Spaniard with Sergio Romero for this evening’s crucial clash with West Ham at Old Trafford. As it stands, the Red Devils are currently fifth in the Premier League table, tied with Leicester City on 62 points, with only two games remaining.
The Spanish international looks short of confidence and the club cannot afford for him to make any more mistakes.
Unsurprisingly, lots of United fans blasted the “liability” on social media ahead of the match this evening, with one supporter saying it is “ridiculous” that he has continued to play in spite of his slump in form, while another thinks it would be a “mistake” to play him against the Hammers, who have beaten Chelsea in recent weeks.

PR leaks to justify his future sale. Another wage removal to serve the Glazer family! Wonder what those players think themselves because DDG has been the best performer for years #GlazersOut

It’s ridiculous at this point

They’re absolutely right to be worried. At this rate he’s beginning to play like he’s a liability other than a necessity to the team

Degea has become very erroneous and fallible.I would like to tell Solskjaer to take Henderson back to the team.For tomorrow’s game i think Romero can do better than Degea,let him relax and watch match from the bench

De gea will make another mistake am sure

I love De Gea but if an outfield player was making so many mistakes I would be calling for them to be dropped. Wether De Gea is dropped or not he’s the best goalkeeper in the world. He’ll be back to his best soon
