Former Manchester United goalkeeper Gary Bailey believes David De Gea should be given a rest after his howler at Watford.

De Gea let Ismaila Sarr’s weak volley slip through his grasp to gift Watford a lead at Vicarage Road which they doubled when Troy Deeney scored a penalty soon after.

The Spain keeper’s standards have slipped since the start of last season, prior to which he was widely viewed as the Premier League’s finest stopper.

But after his latest gaffe, Bailey, who played for United during the 1980s before injuries cut short a promising career, believes the time has come to give Sergio Romero a go in goal.
