David De Gea Produces Howler To Gift Watford Goal Against Manchester United

David De Gea Produces Howler To Gift Watford Goal Against Manchester United

David De Gea produces one of the worst mistakes of his career at Vicarage Road when he gifted Watford the opening goal.

Early in the second half, Watford's record signing Ismaila Sarr found space in the box and hit a bouncing shot that should have been easy enough to deal with.

But De Gea made a complete and utter mess of it, misjudging the ball and dropping it right in the back of his net for 1-0.

Then, mere minutes later, United continued to press the self-destruct button when Aaron Wan-Bissaka fouled Sarr in the area and allowed Troy Deeney to double the Hornets' lead with an emphatic penalty.

Out of absolutely nowhere, De Gea had conceded two goals from the first two shots on target he faced and has now gone 13 successive United games without keeping a clean sheet.

The former Atletico Madrid man has saved United on so many occasions over the years but the regularity of which he makes errors following on from the 2018 World Cup, is becoming extremely alarming.

Since the start of the 2018/19 campaign, De Gea has made six errors directly leading to goals - which is more than anyone other Premier League player has managed in that timeframe.

You expect a lot better from the world's highest-paid goalkeeper...
