Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has backed David de Gea after the shot-stopper was criticised for his mistake in their 1-1 draw with Tottenham Hotspur on Friday night. The Norwegian said De Gea, who joined United back in 2011, is the “best goalkeeper in the world” and is “working really hard” to improve his performances. "David is the best goalkeeper in the world," Solskjaer said. 

"He's conceded two goals in the last seven game he's played for us. There are two games against City, Chelsea, of course, Tottenham, Everton. Two goals in seven games, we've gone on a run not conceding goals.  "The Everton one is a freak one, maybe. This one, he cannot save it. He makes great saves, he wins games for us and I still think he's the best goalkeeper in the world.  "David's working really hard. He's not making errors that you see time and time again. He's been consistently working hard in training and I'm very pleased with his work."
