Manchester United shot-stopper David De Gea has been blamed for the role he played during the disappointing 1-1 draw with Southampton in the Premier League.

Manchester United traveled to Southampton in the first league game on Saturday with the hope of bouncing back from the shock 2-1 loss at home to Crystal Palace in the last league game.

In the end, Manchester United failed to take the three points at stake after they were forced to a 1-1 draw by 10-man Southampton.

Andy Gray is a former Scotland international player turned pundit and he was very vocal about faulting David De Gea for the goal conceded.

While he was doing his punditry work on beIN Sport, Andy Gray blamed Spanish international De Gea for his part in the buildup to the Southampton goal.

According to him, David De Gea should have punished the header from Southampton striker Danny Ings well to avoid giving the Saints the opportunity to lay siege on his goal almost immediately.

De Gea’s punch fell to Austrian fullback Kevin Danso who crossed for Yannik Vestergaard to head home the equalizer after Daniel James had given the visitors a 10th-minute lead.

Southampton finished the game with ten men after Danso was sent off for two yellow cards.
