Manchester United players concerned over David de Gea’s loss of form
The Spaniard was brought in for Sergio Romero for the FA Cup semifinals against Chelsea. It proved to be a disaster as he let in three goals while also making a right hash of the second that he would have been expected to save.
This has led to the possibility of him being dropped for the crucial Premier League clash against West Ham United on Wednesday.
The report goes on to claim that United stars are concerned over what has now become a regular trend. De Gea’s form has veered off in the last two years as he continues to make a number of high-profile errors.
To worsen his woes, the goalkeeper’s training levels have also dropped significantly. The United staff at Carrington is aware of this unpleasant development.
Though players deserve support, sometimes, hard decisions have to be taken. Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp backed an under-fire Loris Karius after the disastrous night at Kyiv.
However, when push came to shove, he was not afraid to go back on his word and bin the German to bring in Alisson becker.
United cannot afford to drop points in the remaining two games of the Premier League campaign. With a top-four finish on the line, the players cannot afford to make mistakes.

De Gea has been one of our best players in the post-Ferguson era. The Spaniard has time and again single-handedly won us games. However, his regression cannot be ignored. Doing so, would jeopardize a lot of good work done elsewhere on the pitch.
The last thing we would want is resentment within the squad that can potentially damage a long-serving player’s reputation.
