David de Gea could start against Aston Villa

Published 5 Comments

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal could recall goalkeeper David de Gea for Friday's Premier League clash with Aston Villa at Villa Park. 

This has been claimed by Greg Stobart of, who has suggested that the Red Devils chief still hasn't made a final decision over his goalkeeping situation ahead of the upcoming match. 

De Gea, who has been heavily linked with a move away from Old Trafford of late, sat in the stands as United beat Tottenham in their opening-day Premier League victory, but it now appears that the Spanish international could be handed a starring role in the club's next fixture.

Summer signing Sergio Romero, then, may well lose his place between the sticks despite keeping a clean sheet in his competitive debut for the club. 

Van Gaal most definitely has a big decision to make before Friday's big game, as the Red Devils go in search of making it two wins from two.

A risk 

Ultimately, with De Gea's long-term future still in doubt at the Theatre of Dreams, it would prove a risk in starting him at Villa Park on Friday. 

Of course, if things have changed since last weekend, then it may be the correct decision to play him, but he has to be focussed on the challenge in hand. 

Romero certainly didn't look out of place last weekend, so it may be worth keeping him in the side until the De Gea saga is put to bed once and for all.
