'If my goalkeeper gave it away at the near post I'd give him an earful': Rio Ferdinand slams De Gea for poor goalkeeping ahead of Bournemouth's first goal

Scoring five goals is fine but conceding two couldn't have gone unnoticed as well.

While reviewing the game, Rio Ferdinand has hit out at David de Gea for failing to cover the near post at the time of Junior Stanislas' goalscoring shot.

"I think David De Gea has got to do better on the near post. Stanislas shows no fear at all. Beautiful, cheeky nutmeg. But that area there he's got three players to pick from which isn't great (for United) but if David De Gea covers that near post he's got nothing else to think of but he doesn't do that.

"That was one of my pet hates as a player if my goalkeeper gave it away at the near post I'd give him an earful," he added.

David de Gea completed just one save during the Bournemouth tie and conceded two goals, one of them coming from the penalty spot.

By the way, Man United have already conceded 4 goals after the break despite being on a fascinating goalscoring form.
