Manchester United's David De Gea Makes Horrendous Error To Give Everton The Lead
Everton have taken the lead against Manchester United after a huge David De Gea mistake.
De Gea received the ball inside the opening few minutes at Goodison Park and attempted to play the ball forward.
However, Dominic Calvert-Lewin closed the Spaniard down and got in the way of the ball to touch it into the United net.
Look away now, David de Gea! ♂️

Everton could have doubled their lead moments later but the 29-year-old got down low to make an excellent save.
Fans on Twitter have reacted to De Gea's calamitous error.
I'm starting to absolutely hate De Gea can't even lie

How many more horrendous cock-ups does De Gea need to make before he loses the 'best goalkeeper in the world' tag?
He's not even the best goalkeeper in Manchester. pic.twitter.com/Us5l0x375L

7 - David De Gea has made seven errors leading directly to an opposition goal in the Premier League since the start of last season, the joint-most alongside Martin Dubravka and Bernd Leno. Shocker. pic.twitter.com/WNoCTxhxds

Never seen a player decline as quickly as De Gea has. Undisputed best goalkeeper in the world to not even top 5 in only a couple of seasons

Name a more overrated player in world football...I'll wait

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be furious as his side have started brilliantly at Goodison Park.
Nemanja Matic rattled the bar with a left footed drive and had another chance to level the score moments later.
But Everton have looked threatening on the counter attack and are causing United's defence problems.
United will be desperate for a victory as it would take them one point behind fourth place Chelsea.
Do you think Manchester United will make it into next season's Champions League?
