Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea had a poor day in goal as Chelsea defeated Manchester United in the FA Cup semi-final clash at the Wembley Stadium on Sunday night.

The United number one has been under fire lately for conceding two cheap goals against Chelsea, and the pressure to drop him has mounted.

Manchester United boss, Olé Gunnar Solskjaer, believes David De Gea has the mental capacity to deal with whatever criticism is thrown his way, following a series of bad performances for the club.

Asked whether he would consider relegating the Spain international to the background when West Ham come visiting on Wednesday, the Norwegian coach said: “This is not going to become a David de Gea press conference.

“We are just going to stick together.

“We’ve got two games and we’re going to focus on that.

He continued: “David is mentally strong enough to know his job is to perform in training the next day and be ready for the games.

“My job is to prepare the team for West Ham and that’s what we’re doing. We’re not going to talk about individuals because no one here is going to feel that we put more pressure on them.”
