Jamie Carragher thinks Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should “worry” about David de Gea as his poor form for Man Utd is no longer just a “blip”.
The Spain international goalkeeper was heavily criticised for not keeping out Steven Bergwijn’s strike in a 1-1 Premier League draw at Tottenham late last month.
He came under fire from Roy Keane and other pundits over the amount of errors he has made this season with some suggesting that Solskjaer should give Dean Henderson a chance next season.
And Carragher thinks De Gea will be concerning Solskjaer if he wants Man Utd to try and challenge for the Premier League title next season.
Carragher wrote in the Daily Telegraph: “The players who elevated Liverpool from being a side chasing the top four into European and Premier League champions are Virgil van Dijk and Alisson.
“They take Jurgen Klopp’s side to a level beyond Manchester United, certainly defensively. United have to worry about their keeper. David De Gea’s poor form has gone on too long for it to be described as a blip.
“I do not believe he will get back to the level he was three or four years ago. Given he is a high earner he will not be easy to move on.”
Carragher added: “While there are those suggesting on-loan Dean Henderson is ready to step up, he is not ready.
“With respect to Sheffield United, there is a different pressure at Old Trafford. Some of the goals Henderson has conceded would have been scrutinised more if he was at Manchester United.”
