Ole Gunnar Solskjaer calls David De Gea ‘best goalkeeper in the world’ after Spurs & team news vs Sheffield United

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer calls David De Gea ‘best goalkeeper in the world’ after Spurs

Roy Keane was apoplectic at halftime on Friday night after Tottenham took the lead against Man United in the Premier League.

The fiery Irishman claimed he’d be punching David De Gea at half-time for his inability to stop Steven Bergwijn’s shot which handed Spurs the lead. Keane fumed:

I would be fining him (De Gea) at half-time, there is no getting away from that. I would be swinging punches at that guy. That is a standard save for an established international goalkeeper.

Of course, Man United hit back in the second half through a Bruno Fernandes penalty to earn a point against Tottenham.

On Tuesday, ahead of Man United’s match against Sheffield United at Old Trafford on Wednesday, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took the opportunity to defend De Gea in public.

The Norwegian coach stated that he still believes De Gea is the best goalie in the world.

Scott McTominay’s new deal & Sheffield United’s Dean Henderson

Before Solskjaer’s presser, Man United announced that midfielder Scott McTominay has agreed a new deal until 2025.

McTominay has celebrated his new deal, telling the Man United website:

Whilst I understand that we all have so many other things to think about at the moment, I’m so happy to sign this contract and play a part in the future ahead for this team.

Solskjaer sang McTominay’s praises in his pre-Sheffield United presser.

Also, Solskjaer took the opportunity to wax lyrical about Man United loanee, Dean Henderson.

Henderson will be unable to play for the Blades in midweek as per the terms of his loan contract.

However, Solskjaer was only too happy to big-up the future United keeper.

 

Man United team news vs Sheffield United

When it came to previewing the Sheffield United game, Solskjaer said the following:

I don’t know Chris (Wilder) well but know him well enough he’ll have his team fired up after a defeat to Newcastle and I’m sure he’s challenged his team to come to Old Trafford and prove what they’ve proven all season.

It’s great to play a game but there’s no better time now than before. For me I’m sure we will get a Sheffield United team that is fired up.

It remains unclear if Victor Lindelof will be available for the game after he picked up a knock against Tottenham.

Phil Jones and Axel Tuanzebe are Man United’s other injury concerns.
