Man Utd star Marcus Rashford’s actions speak volumes after David de Gea error vs West Ham | Football | Sport


United began the Premier League clash positively, creating quite a few openings but again lacking a clinical touch.

But West Ham took the lead out of thin air within the twenty seventh minute when Benrahma profited from a disastrous De Gea error.

The Algerian forward let rip from range under pressure from Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Victor Lindelof, failing to get any kind of power behind his effort.

And that seemingly caught De Gea off guard, with the Spaniard looking like he made a snug save right down to his right before the ball rebounded off him into the back of the online.

It killed any momentum United had in-built the opening stages and made for an additional uncomfortable half of football away from home.

United’s backline produced telling reactions to the goal, with Lindelof falling to his knees in disbelief.

But later replays captured that Erik ten Hag and Rashford were just as shocked with the way of West Ham’s opener.

The Dutch boss bowed his head in disappointment while Rashford wore a stunned look on his face and put his hands on his head.

His first instinct was to show to Ten Hag as if it wasn’t the primary time he’d aired his frustrations over De Gea’s increased error proneness between the sticks.

The Spanish stopper is leading the Premier League Golden Glove race, keeping 15 clean sheets this season.

But doubts over whether he’s the proper sort of goalkeeper for a Ten Hag side have been compounded by costly mistakes this season.

Before the trip to West Ham, he endured a horror show in United’s 3-0 defeat at Sevilla, which saw them eliminated from the Europa League.

And with De Gea reportedly closing in on a latest contract at Old Trafford, the controversy over his suitability for the No 1 is certain to rumble on.
