The post Sir Alex Ferguson era at Manchester United has been a difficult, testing and ultimately disappointing period for English footballs most successful club, but one consistent that always seemed to remain was the form of David De Gea.
The Spaniard was signed by the Scot back in 2011 and has gone on to cement himself as one of the best goalkeepers not just in the Premier League, but world football. However he hasn't had things all his own way, he endured a rocky start to life in England which saw many question his ability but it eventually shone through.
This season though has seen the first real questions asked of him since that difficult first year. He's not been helped by an absolutely dreadful and ever changing defensive line-up but the stats don't make great reading for him.
The Red Devils have conceded 51 goals in the Premier League alone this season, which is a club record. Alongside that they've kept just 2 clean sheets at Old Trafford, which shows it's a million miles away from the fortress that it used to be.
De Gea can be excused for the majority of this due to the performances of Ashley Young, Chris Smalling, Phil Jones et all in front of him but he has made some big mistakes. This year has seen him make the most errors leading to goals (4) in his Manchester United career, the most recent of which is arguably the biggest.
The inconsistency of the other sides battling for a spot in the top four meant that a win over fourth placed Chelsea on Sunday would give United a fantastic chance of bringing Champions League football to Old Trafford next season and despite a much improved performance, they were held 1-1 - with David De Gea's performance the main taking point.
The 28 year-old fumbled a long range strike Antonio Rudiger right into the path of Marcos Alonso who tucked home from 6 yards to give the Blues a crucial point. It was another low moment for De Gea and it's tough to see someone who's been so good for so many years suffer such a crisis of confidence.
The fans remain behind him and rightly so, but is it time to take him out the spotlight and give Sergio Romero some game time heading into the final two match days of the season?
