The Red Devils went into tonight’s derby clash knowing they owed their supporters a serious amount of payback following Sunday’s embarrassing 4-0 defeat away at Everton.
However, just beyond the hour mark, both Bernardo Silva and Leroy Sane had managed to find the back of the net – and de Gea was at the scene of the crime for both goals.

Despite being United’s best player for several seasons now, de Gea seems to be taking A LOT of stick from the club’s supporters on social media tonight:

What do you think?
