- David De Gea made a mistake which caused Manchester United a goal against Spurs
- The Spaniard was attacked by Manchester United legend Roy Keane after the tie
- Solskjaer has now stated that David De Gea tried his best in the encounter
Ole Solskjaer has defended embattled Manchester United goalie David De Gea over his gaffe that allowed Tottenham scored the opener in the 1-1 Premier League draw.
Jose Mourinho and his wards were aiming for the three points against Manchester United before Pogba was pushed by Eric Dier which gave the Red Devils penalty scored by Bruno Fernandes.
Spurs' gaffer Jose Mourinho blamed the VAR for Manchester United goal claiming that his opponents should not have been given the penalty.
And recently, Manchester United legend Roy Keane attacked David De Gea claiming that his performance was a bad one against Tottenham.
Roy Keane even claimed that he would not allow David De Gea to enter into the bus back to Manchester after the game if he was the manager.
Solskjaer has now hit back at Roy Keane saying that David De Gea did well against Tottenham and asked his former teammate probably he would be able to save such goal.
“David did really well. Roy was a fantastic midfielder and he’s a good friend of mine.
"But I’m not sure he’d have stopped it either. David was a bit disappointed but the ball was moving through the air. We reacted well,'' Solskjaer explained according to Mirror.
Manchester United are occupying fifth position on the Premier League table and they are two points behind fourth placed Chelsea.

Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Peter Schmeichel has described the signing of Nigerian striker Odion Ighalo a positive one for Manchester United considering his performances so far since he joined the Red Devils.
During the days when Odion Ighalo used to play football on the street in Lagos, the Nigerian used to wear Manchester United jersey everywhere.
His dream is to play for the Old Trafford landlords and that was fulfilled when the Red Devils signed him in January this year after Marcus Rashford got injured.
Odion Ighalo has proven since then that he is a good striker scoring four goals so far in nine games and will be at Old Trafford until January next year.
Ighalo on Friday night, June 19, played his ninth game for Manchester United when he appeared against Tottenham in a match that ended in draw.
