Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Man United keeper David De Gea is ‘best in the world’

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has defended David De Gea as Manchester United prepare to face Sheffield United on Wednesday evening.

Solskjaer’s side will line up at Old Trafford for the first time since winning the Manchester derby on March 8.

The Reds secured a 1-1 draw on their return to action at Tottenham on Friday, when goalkeeper David De Gea came under the spotlight once again after failing to keep out Steven Bergwijn’s effort.

“David is the best goalkeeper in the world,” his manager said.“He’s conceded two goals in the last seven game he’s played for us.

“There’s two games against City, Chelsea, of course Tottenham, Everton. Two goals in seven games, we’ve gone on a run not conceding goals.

“The Everton one is a freak one, maybe. This one, he cannot save it.

“He makes great saves, he wins games for us and I still think he’s the best goalkeeper in the world.

“David’s working really hard. He’s not making errors that you see time and time again. He’s been consistently working hard in training and I’m very pleased with his work.”
