Louis van Gaal to delay David de Gea decision

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal is set to make a late decision when selecting his goalkeeper for this weekend's crunch Premier League clash with Liverpool. 

As reported by the Daily Mail, it has been claimed that the Red Devils chief will use the club's final training session to make up his mind as to whether to reinstate David de Gea between the sticks at Old Trafford. 

De Gea, of course, still hasn't featured for United this term, after being involved in a summer transfer saga with Spanish giants Real Madrid, however it appears that he's now back in contention in Manchester.

It remains to be seen, however, as to whether he will replace summer signing Sergio Romero, who has starred in goal for United throughout the course of the campaign so far. 

Romero, despite enjoying a steady start to life in the Premier League, struggled against Swansea City in the Red Devils' last outing, so it wouldn't be entirely surprising if Van Gaal opted to start last season's No.1 on Saturday. 

De Gea must play 

At the end of the day, as long as he's in the right frame of mind, De Gea must play against Liverpool. Ultimately, the shot-stopper has been the Red Devils' standout player for the past two seasons - and he could yet have a huge role to play this term. 

As United go in search of overhauling rivals Chelsea at the summit of the Premier League table, it's crucial the club's best players hit top form. Ultimately, De Gea falls into that category, so the United chief should make the decision to reinstate the 'keeper for the good of the team. 

De Gea was outstanding in last season's home fixture with Liverpool, and there's no reason why he won't be able to prove his credentials at the club once again.
