De Gea failed to make a single save while allowing five goals during Manchester United's shocking 5-3 Premier League loss to Leicester City on Sunday.

Manchester United led 3-1 after Ander Herrera's 57th-minute goal, but completely gave away the game after that. Two of Leicester's five goals came from the penalty spot, but de Gea was still beaten three times in open play. It was an absolutely dreadful performance that ended his two-game clean sheet streak in spectacular fashion. Up next is a home match against West Ham, who have scored five goals in the last two games against Liverpool and Hull City.

De Gea made three saves during Manchester United's scoreless draw with Burnley on Saturday.

After getting crushed 4-0 by MK Dons in the Capital One Cup, De Gea turned it around in league play, helping United notch their first clean sheet of the season. With new defensive additions Daley Blind and Marcos Rojo set to play after the international break, De Gea should get plenty of opportunities for more shutouts.

De Gea let in four goals as Manchester United crashed out of the Captial One Cup at the hands of MK Dons 4-0 on Tuesday.

Manchester United have gotten off to a disappointing start under Lous van Gaal, who used this match to give a number of young players experience. The young players did not come through, and plenty of veterans struggled as well. De Gea will not be pleased having picked the ball out of his net four times.

De Gea made two saves but allowed two goals during Manchester United's 2-1 loss to Swansea City in their Premier League opener on Saturday.

A rough start to the season for de Gea, who will have to step it up this season if United continue to employ the 3-5-2 that manager Louis van Gaal is trying to institute this season. Up next for de Gea is a trip to the Stadium of Light to face Sunderland on Aug. 24.

De Gea will be out for up to 10 days due to "muscular discomfort in [his] gluteal region," the Spanish FA announced.

De Gea underwent scans Sunday that revealed the muscle strain, which will make him unavailable for matches against Chile and Australia. There was some talk that de Gea could start after Iker Casillas' terrible performance against Netherlands, but if he were to be benched, Pepe Reina is now the only other option in net.

De Gea said that Manchester United are determined to at least qualify for the Europa League tournament next season, reports Sky Sports.

United are currently three points behind Tottenham in the standings that would qualify for Europa League. Despite De Gea's stellar performances at times this season the team as a whole has endured a miserable season.
