Man United fans have a message for David de Gea after West Ham win!

The Spaniard produced another standout performance  to help his club keep it’s top four hopes alive.

Manchester United gave their top-four aspirations a much-needed boost as Paul Pogba proved the difference against West Ham. Paul Pogba converted two penalties either side of half-time to lift Manchester United to an unconvincing 2-1 win over West Ham at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Starman Pogba beat Lukasz Fabianski for the second time in the 80th minute to snatch just a second victory in six competitive games that sent Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side back to within two points of the Premier League’s top four. Pogba may be on the score sheet but it was De Gea’s performance that kept United in the match. It seems Manchester United fans have a message for David De Gea following the win.

David de Gea bailed Manchester United out against West Ham as he produced another memorable save to prevent the visitors from going in front at Old Trafford. The Spaniard produced a sprawling dive to his right to tip over Michail Antonio’s header and keep the scores level at 1-1 during a particularly rocky period for United in the second half.

The 28-year-old took to Twitter after the match to celebrate the three points, secured by two successfully converted Paul Pogba penalties, with a simple message. “Together as a TEAM, always,” the message, posted alongside a picture of himself with Phil Jones and Pogba, read.

United should have fallen behind in the 10th minute as replays showed Felipe Anderson, adjudged offside, to have been level with Diogo Dalot when firing in following Javier Hernandez’s downward header. The hosts quickly made the reprieve count.

Robert Snodgrass clumsily tripped Juan Mata just inside the box and Pogba, eschewing his usual stuttering run-up for a conventional approach, sent Lukasz Fabianski the wrong way. West Ham continued to show positive intent and there was no denying Felipe Anderson in the 49th minute, the Brazilian ghosting in at the far post and tucking away Manuel Lanzini’s cross.

West Ham had been on top after Felipe Anderson cancelled out Pogba’s first-half opener and substitute Michail Antonio twice went close to giving them a late lead. But, following Ryan Fredericks’ panicked challenge on Anthony Martial in the box, Pogba’s second penalty ensured the hosts rebounded from Wednesday’s 1-0 loss to Barcelona and can look ahead to the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie next week with renewed optimism.

United are desperate to keep hold of De Gea, whose contract at the club expires at the end of next season, and fans have urged him to commit to a new deal after his latest masterclass.

Author’s Take:

United should do whatever it takes to extend David De Gea’s contract. If Solskjaer wants to win trophies then De Gea must be in his plans for coming years.
