David De Gea's Howler Hands Crystal Palace A Shock 2-1 Win Over Manchester United
David de Gea's shocking howler cost Manchester United a draw and handed Crystal Palace an emphatic 2-1 victory at Old Trafford.
Crystal Palace launched a counterattack deep into injury time and placed the United backline under pressure.
And Patrick van Aanholt stormed into the box and fired a near-post shot that squeezed its way under De Gea.
The Spanish shot-stopper, who was heavily criticised for his mistakes last season, has once again been placed in the firing line on social media.
And david de gea needs a wake up call in my opinion.

Horrible performance by United. De Gea clearly in decline. Gonna be a long season ahead

Can't blame Pogba. DeGea should be doing better there. It's not like he was careless on the ball he got dispossessed simple.

DeGea should run down his contract and leave. He is done! If you can't see this you must be deluded too! #MUNCRY

De Gea is finished.
There's bad form and then there's David De Gea. He's not fit to lace Kepa's boots.

Roy Hodgson's men stunned United in
the first half after Jordan
Ayew opened the scoring at Old Trafford.
United had a chance to pull level with the Eagles from a penalty, but Marcus Rashford failed to convert from the spot-kick.
The Red Devils struggled to pull themselves back into the match until Daniel
James pulled back an equaliser before injury time.
But United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer suffered his first defeat of the season after De Gea's costly error.
Crystal Palace's victory over United is the first time that they have beaten the Red Devils in the Premier League.
The penalty miss from Rashford will add to Solskjaer's woes after Paul Pogba, who alternates with the United forward as the club's spot-kick taker, failed to convert against Wolves on Monday.
