RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

De Gea made four saves, including denying Leighton Baines on a penalty for the first time in his career, during Manchester United's 2-1 win over Everton on Sunday.

De Gea made a number of excellent saves, though most fantasy points don't give extra points for good-looking denials. The United defense is still very much a work-in-progress, which doesn't help De Gea's fantasy value for clean sheets. That being said, he's got a decent matchup against West Brom on Oct. 20 after the international break before back-to-back fixtures against Chelsea and Manchester City.

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 one save in Manchester United's 4-0 win over QPR on Sunday.

De Gea has now posted clean sheets in back-to-back matches as United are finally starting to figure out their defensive issues. Up next is a decent opportunity for a third straight shutout on the road at Leicester 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.
