David de Gea has been criticized for falling too easily during Manchester United’s Premier League win over Arsenal.
The Spaniard came on in the 13th minute of Thursday night’s 3-2 win over the Gunners after teammate Fred accidentally stood on the instep of his foot.
Emile Smith Rowe’s long-range effort edged past De Gea to give Arsenal the lead, although the Spaniard returned shortly after.
And Premier League legend Alan Shearer believes the 31-year-old made up a meal of contact, saying: “I didn’t see or hear the referee blow the penalty. I didn’t see or hear a foul. fatal error to the keeper and it just means that his player stands above him.
“I don’t think I’m being too harsh here, but I don’t think the game has changed that much. It happens in every game, someone stands on your foot or your ankle.
“With him going down like that, no matter where the ball is, it’s true that they hurt. But I’m not sure he should keep going down like that. Either way he got up a minute later. , so it can’t have hurt a lot.
“There is an argument, if there is a serious injury and he cannot continue and is on a stretcher, then there will be an argument about fairness of the game if Arsenal should let Man Utd score.
“But he got up right after that. He walked around, didn’t limp. I think you get them in every game.”
