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.

Roy Hodgson's men stunned United in the first half after Jordan Ayew opened the scoring at Old Trafford.

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.

Should Solskjaer drop De Gea?

Let us know in the comments.
