Five things we learned from the Premier League this weekend: Swansea City vs Manchester United
The Red Devils were defeated at the Liberty Stadium. Manchester United blew a 1-0 lead away at Swansea City to lose 2-1 and heap more pressure on their manager Louis van Gaal. SillySeason takes a look at five things we learned from the match.
1. United NEED a new goalkeeper
Louis van Gaal has two days to secure himself a top class goalkeeper, assuming that David De Gea is on his way out of Old Trafford to go to Real Madrid.
The Spaniard hasn’t featured in any of United’s games so far this season, he hasn’t even made the bench.
Both Victor Valdes’ and Anders Lindegaard’s careers in Manchester look all but over, which leaves free signing Sergio Romero as the number one and ex-Preston North End loanee Sam Johnstone as the second choice.
Hardly convincing for United’s standards, as was Romero’s performance yesterday at Swansea. His distribution was poor and he was beaten far too easily by Bafetimbi Gomis for the hosts’ winning goal.
Like Gary Neville said on Super Sunday, United need to secure the future of De Gea or act swiftly in the remaining days of the transfer market.
