David De Gea torn apart online after howler vs Barcelona

Viewers of the clash between Manchester United and Barcelona have taken to social media in their droves this evening, to take aim at David De Gea.

Barca welcome United

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Red Devils are currently locked in action with La Liga champions Barcelona at the Camp Nou, in the second-leg of the Champions League quarter-final tie between the clubs.

The tie’s first-leg at Old Trafford last week saw visitors Barca emerge with a crucial away win, courtesy of an early Luke Shaw own-goal.

As such, the Blaugrana headed into proceedings this evening as clear favourites to advance.

And it didn’t take long for Ernesto Valverde’s men to all-but secure their place in the Champions League’s final-8.

After a blistering start from visitors United, during which Marcus Rashford rattled the crossbar, Barca soon settled, before a mistake from Ashley Young with a quarter of an hour on the clock saw Lionel Messi take full advantage.

After cutting in from the right in trademark style, the Argentine superstar unleashed an unstoppable low drive beyond David De Gea into the bottom corner of the away goal.

And, incredibly, it was 2-0 just minutes later.

This time, though, De Gea not only had the chance to save Messi’s brace-clincher, but very-well should have.

Another low effort, this time with the Barca captain’s weaker right foot, somehow managed to squirm under the body of the United shot-stopper, in a real moment to forget for De Gea.

And to say that fans have since been ruthless in their assessment of the Spaniard’s howler would be putting it lightly, with some of the best reaction from across Twitter showcased below:
