Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku has leaped into the defence of goalkeeper David de Gea amid his torrid run of form of late. The Spaniard has been culpable for making keeping mistakes which have cost the team over the past month and one of those came during the 1-1 Premier League draw against Chelsea, which has hampered their prospects of making the top four.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Lukaku described De Gea as a very positive person and suggested that he has been the club’s standout performer in the past few seasons. He added that the shot-stopper will return to his best form in due course, considering he will learn from the mistakes made in recent weeks.
