David de Gea is one of the players who were singled out for underperformance last year, conceding 57 goals in 38 games. The worst figure in his career defending the Red Devils' goal, he became one of the teams they conceded the most goals to, many times he was asked to be replaced and that may be the case at the end of the current season.
