Burnley goalkeeper Joe Hart believes that Manchester United shot-stopper David De Gea is still a quality goalkeeper after his mistake during the Manchester Derby clash in the Premier League.

De Gea was largely culpable for the goals scored by Manchester City who won the bragging rights over their neighbors via a 2-0 away win.

The victory ensured that Manchester City did the double over the Red Devils having beaten them 3-1 earlier this season while Portuguese tactician Jose Mourinho was still in charge of the team.

Mourinho was sacked and swiftly replaced by former club striker Oleg Gunnar Solskjaer in December.

Joe Hart was a guest at the Sky Sports studios and he came to the defense of David De Gea after the Manchester Derby.

According to him, things are not going the way of the Spanish international at the moment but that does not make him a bad keeper overnight.

After a goalless first half, David De Gea was beaten at his near post by Manchester City forward Bernardo Silva for the first goal of the game before being culpable for the second Manchester City goal scored by substitute Leroy Sane.

The win was enough to send Manchester City to the top of the Premier League table in their quest to win a second straight league title.
