"He's quite an average goalkeeper" Ziyech reacts to David De Gea's new unwanted record for Man Utd

Manchester United fans are yet to forgive and forget the blunders made by Spain and Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea, as the Red Devils were knockout of the English FA cup at Wembley stadium on Sunday night.

Olivier Giroud opened the scoring in the last minutes of the first half after an assist from Cesar Azipilicueta.

Chelsea doubled the lead immediately after returning from the first half break through Mason Mount, who scored a beautiful long range shot.

Harry Maguire directed a Chelsea's shot inside his own box mistakenly to give Chelsea 3-0 advantage, before Bruno Fernandes scored Manchester United only goal towards the end of the match.

Many people criticized goalkeeper David De Gea for his shaky performance for Manchester United on Sunday, as they believed he should have done better to save Olivier Giroud and Mason Mount's goals.

With De Gea's performance against Chelsea, another record has been discovered by Optajoe that:

"Based on Opta's expected goals on target data (xGoT), David de Gea has conceded the same tally of goals that the model would expect the 'average' GK to concede over the last two PL seasons, compared to preventing 14 goals with his saves in the 2017-18 campaign alone."

Football fans have now started reacting to David De Gea's new unwanted record in Manchester United defeat to Chelsea, among them is a fan known as Hakim Ziyech, who described him as a quite average goalkeeper.

The defeat to Chelsea means Manchester United only hope of winning silverware this season is on Europa league, after being knockout of the FA cup in the Semi final.
