De Gea's woeful Man Utd penalty record goes on as Maupay scores cheeky panenka past Spaniard


David de Gea Manchester United 2020-21

David de Gea's woeful penalty record for Manchester United has been extended after Neal Maupay's cheeky panenka against the Spaniard.

Neal Maupay stepped up to convert from 12 yards, producing anaudacious chip which completely deceived De Gea as he dived the wrong way and could only watch on helplessly as the ball nestled into the roof of the net.

Questions have been asked over the Spanish number one's form in between the sticks over the past couple of seasons, with basic positioning and handling errors becoming an all too regular occurrence for a shot-stopper once revered as the best in the business.

He has also proven to be ineffective when it comes to keeping out spot-kicks, with Maupay's effort marking the 27thpenalty he has conceded out of the last 29 he has faced.

De Gea nearly improved on that underwhelming streak when he kept out Jordan Ayew's penalty during United's 3-1 defeat against Crystal Palace last weekend, but he was adjudged to have moved off his goal when the ball was struck, leading to a retake and successful conversion from Wilfred Zaha.

The 29-year-old was very nearly asked to face another spot-kick early in the second half at Brighton, with United having drawn level just before the intervalthrough a Lewis Dunk own goal.

Paul Pogba was initially penalised for bringing downAaron Connolly in the area, only forKavanagh to overturn his original decision following a VAR review.
