Twitter reacts to goalkeeping horror shows from David de Gea & Robin Olsen

Well! What an evening of action we had at Old Trafford on Saturday!

Just when Manchester United appeared to be doing something normal, they then produced one of the craziest 45 minutes of football you will ever see.

The Red Devils were in cruise control against Everton on Saturday evening, heading into the break with a comfortable 2-0 lead, dominating proceedings from top to toe. Bruno Fernandes was on fire, the forwards were looking scary – all was good in the world.

Then came the Man Utd madness. It all started with a man synonymous with clanger fever – David De Gea. The Spaniard attempted to push away a cross from Dominic Calvert-Lewin (more to come from him later), but he only managed to spill it into the path of Abdoulaye Doucoure.

Game on, thanks to Dave the anti-save.

There was some sweet relief for De Gea, though! Despite Everton pulling back to level at 2-2, Toffees ‘shot-stopper’ Robin Olsen defied his title and logic to somehow allow Scott McTominay’s weak header to trickle over the line.

Of course, De Gea’s stinkers weren’t exactly forgotten, either…

Ultimately, it was Olsen who had the last laugh (kind of), as teammate Calvert-Lewin rescued a point from the jaws of defeat in the 95th minute, pouncing on some serious De Gea hesitation to poke the ball home.

Look away now, Dave.

It wasn’t just the goalkeepers who felt Twitter’s wrath tonight, however. Captain Harry Maguire did not escape the supporters’ ire for the part he played in Man Utd’s collapse against the Toffees.

The centre-back dropped much, much deeper than his teammates for the final goal, playing the entire Everton team onside. Not a good look.

And the referee blew the final whistle to end this crazy game, with Man Utd and Everton leaving the field with three goals scored, three conceded, but only a point apiece. The Premier League is unrivalled, folks.
