- United drew the Toffees 1-1 on Sunday.
- Lindelof's own goal was preceded by a clear foul on De Gea.
- VAR did not rule it out as Calvert-Lewin punching the Spaniard in his face with an elbow was a 'normal contact'.
- Graeme Souness is adamant it was a foul.
- Still, De Gea should've been 'more solid' in that episode, according to the Liverpool legend.
Graeme Souness has put blame on David de Gea for Everton's goal in the 1-1 draw at Old Trafford on Sunday. Even though Dominic Calvert-Lewin obviously fouled the Spaniard in the build-up to Victor Lindelof's own goal, De Gea should've been 'more solid' in that incident, insists the Liverpool legend.
"It's obviously a foul but the goalkeeper has to have a closer look at himself, he doesn’t come with any conviction," he said on Sky Sports.
"I think there’s a real argument for it not to be allowed but if I am in charge of that United team, you have got to expect a challenge.
"I’m blaming the goalkeeper if he is more solid in his effort to punch it, he comes out and clears Calvert-Lewin and it doesn’t go into the back of the net."
After a corner from Leighton Baines in the 36th minute of the encounter, Calvert-Lewin hit De Gea in the face with his elbow. The Premier League deemed it a 'normal contact'.
When Sky Sports presenter David Jones told Souness Prem's reasoning for ruling the goal to be legal, Graeme replied: "Calvert-Lewin has got his arm on his face... how is that normal contact?"
