Roy Keane slams David de Gea and says he'd "lynch him" after Everton error

Manchester United's goalkeeper made a dreadful error just three minutes into Sunday's clash at Goddison Park, when his attempted clearance hit Dominic Calvert-Lewin and went in

Roy Keane says he'd have "lynched" David de Gea at half-time if he was his Manchester United teammate after the goalkeeper's dreadful error against Everton .

After dallying on the ball, De Gea slammed a third minute clearance straight at Blues forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who then saw the ball rebound into the net.

It was the worst possible start for a United side who went into the game knowing that a win would take them to just one point outside the top four.

The Red Devils did force an equaliser before half-time thanks to another goalkeeping error from Everton's Jordan Pickford, who allowed a long range effort from Bruno Fernandes to squirm past his dive and into the net.

But Sky Sports pundit Keane saved most of his ire for De Gea at the break, laying into the Spanish stopper for his error.

When asked by Sky Sports host David Jones how he'd have reacted if a goalkeeper involved in his team had made a similar error, Keane vowed: "As a manager or player I'd kill him! You'd kill him!

"He's a goalkeeper being too clever. He just takes too long. What is he waiting for?!

"If you're going to make a decision at least do it quickly. These are huge moments for United in terms of trying to get into the top four, and you've got your experienced goalkeeper... what is he waiting for?!

"I think there's almost a bit of arrogance to it, 'look at me...'

"I would have lynched him at half-time. I'd have no time for that carry on."

United went in at the break level at 1-1 after the errors from both goalkeepers.

Think Man Utd will need to sell de Gea. Last season he was making mistakes. This season he is still making mistakes.
