A statistic perfectly summing up the recent struggles of Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has emerged online this afternoon.

United struggling

United are currently locked in action with Everton at Goodison Park, in a crucial outing in the Red Devils’ push for a top-4 spot.

Ahead of kick-off, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men sat in 6th-place in the Premier League table, two points adrift of joint 4th-place holders Arsenal and Chelsea.

A dismal recent spell of form, though, had seen United fall to 5 defeats from their last 7 fixtures across all competitions, with their last league outing having seen the Manchester giants lucky to push past West Ham by 2 goals to 1 last weekend.

And the recent struggles of the Red Devils have since carried firmly into the opening 45 minutes at Goodison this afternoon.

A toothless first-half display has seen Solskjaer’s side deservedly head into the interval 2 goals behind, in absolute dire straits.

Richarlison opened the scoring for Everton with a superb volleyed finish in the 13th-minute.

And Gylfi Sigurdsson added to United’s woes with a fantastic finish of his own just shy of the half-hour mark, cutting inside from the left to drive a low strike beyond David de Gea from 25 yards.

However, Sigurdsson’s strike, while undoubtedly a moment of individual brilliance on the part of the Icelandic international, was also aided by the lacklustre reactions of David de Gea.

The Spaniard, who has been some way short of his brilliant best of late, was far too slow to dive down to his right, with a statistic doing the rounds online since having perfectly summed up just how poor Manchester United’s no.1 has been since the turn of the year:
