Roy Keane fumes he’d have ‘lynched’ David de Gea after Man Utd error vs Everton
Roy Keane did not hold back in his criticism of David de Gea after the Manchester United goalkeeper was at fault for Everton’s opener on Sunday.
De Gea’s clearance struck Dominic Calvert-Lewis in the fourth minute with the rebound going straight past the shot-stopper and into the net.
The Spaniard made the error despite having plenty of options and time, though arguably made up for the mistake with a superb save moments later.
Though Keane, who was working as a pundit for Sky Sports, did not hold back in his criticism as he said how he would react to the mistake.

"What is De Gea waiting for?” Keane told Sky Sports. “It's crazy. “There's almost a bit of arrogance to him. I would have lynched him at half time. There are no excuses."
De Gea’s error was his seventh leading directly to an opposition goal in the Premier League since the start of last season.

And football fans were equally quick to criticise the United ace.
Outspoken Arsenal fan Piers Morgan tweeted: “How many more horrendous cock-ups does De Gea need to make before he loses the 'best goalkeeper in the world' tag? He's not even the best goalkeeper in Manchester.”
Another fan wrote: “De Gea seriously though, this is sunday league s***!!!”
A third put: “Never seen a player decline as quickly as De Gea has.”

“Love De Gea but it’s probably time for Henderson to replace him. These mistakes are becoming too frequent,” a disappointed supporter posted.
While a fifth ranted: “The consistency in De Gea’s errors these past 18 months has been absolutely criminal.”
De Gea had Bruno Fernandes to thank later on in the first half with the January signing scoring from distance to level the scores.
