Jordan Pickford defends Man United keeper De Gea after defeat to City

- Jordan Pickford, England goalkeeper, has hit out at the critics of Manchester United's David De Gea

- The Everton star said it was unfair to hurl criticism at the Spaniard due to the Red Devils' inglorious defeat to rivals Man City

- According to him, De Gea, remains one of the best stoppers in the world despite his current form

England goalkeeper, Jordan Pickford, has backed Manchester United's David De Gea saying the harsh criticism aimed at the Spaniard showed how incredible the shot-stopper is for United.

Pickford said judging De Gea on the outcome of one game was unfair and that it was normal for all keepers to have bad days.

Skysports reports that England's number one believes De Gea has still had an impressive season despite his recent dip in form.

He told Skysports: "Everyone will have those games. I think he is one of the top keepers in the world and I think he's incredible."

"You can't criticise a keeper for one game. I think it just goes to show how good he has been all season.''

De Gea has conceded six times in his last two games for the Red Devils after United were thumped 4-0 by Pickford and company at Goodison Park, and two more against City at Old Trafford.

In the same vein, ex-Man City keeper, Joe Hart, has also defended De Gea, stating that he is truly among the best keepers in the world and said there was no keeper as brave as the Spaniard.

He said: "He's a top goalkeeper. I have never seen a keeper like him. I love watching him, he's so brave, you can't knock him.
