Man United suffered a 2-0 defeat in the Manchester derby at Old Trafford.
Two stunning goals from Bernardo Silva and Leroy Sane proved enough for Guardiola’s side to rocket themselves back to the top of the Premier League table.
David de Gea, who’s already in the news for his howler against Barcelona, was again under the spotlight after Leroy Sane’s goal in th 66th minute. The Spanish goalkeeper failed to deal with what seemed a relatively routine effort from the German.
However, the United gaffer refused to blame the Spaniard in his post-match interview.
The Norwegian said: “David [De Gea] made some terrific saves as well today. It is every day work for everyone. He has high standards. When we are having a time like this we need to stick together, batten the hatches down and keep working. We have to come back fighting on Sunday.”
David De Gea saved us from watching Liverpool lift the Premier League trophy. Best save he needed to make today. My goalkeeper.

Superb from Sterling, terrific from Sane, poor from De Gea.

David de Gea is considered one of the best goalkeepers in the world, however, this season the Spanish no. 1 has made 3 errors – which directly lead to an opposition goal. Before this season, it took him four years to make same amount of errors in the league.
What’s wrong in 2018/19?
