Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still that insists David De Gea remains “the best goalkeeper in the world”  at the moment despite the unfortunate moment which led to Everton’s opener on Sunday 1st.

Everton’s ominic Calvert-Lewin pounced on an attempted clearance from David De Gea to put the Everton ahead after just three minutes of play at Goodison Park, but the Spaniard went on to make a handful of crucial stops during a dramatic game that ended in a 1-1 draw.

 After having been asked about De Gea in his post-match press conference and also about the strength in depth he has in his goalkeeping Solskjaer lamented that De gea is still the best in the whole world.

“We want the best possible squad for Man United,” insisted Solskjaer. “David for me is the best goalkeeper in the world.

“Dean is a very good challenger and Sergio is a challenger as well. We want a squad that’s full of quality with competition of course and if you want to survive at the top you need to bounce off competition from right, left and centre.

“Dean is our player. He is doing really well at the moment and the day he comes back he’s obviously fighting to play here as well. But for me David showed on Sunday his reaction and the way he made amends and saved that chance from Sigurdsson at the end.

“He went through a difficult patch last season but David has been very, very good this season. I can’t really remember any errors apart from the Watford one. I trust him 100 per cent in the goal.”
