Breaking News ! DAVID DE GEA has let in FIVE of the last eight Premier League shots faced from inside the box. And Paul Scholes reckons the Manchester United goalkeeper is now a 'real problem' for the club. 3 De Gea's miserable record between the sticks in recent weeks continued on Sunday - hours after SunSport revealed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is plotting to sell either the Spaniard or Dean Henderson. Newcastle managed two shots on target from inside the penalty area - both from Allan Saint-Maximin. The first of those ended up in the back of the net, while De Gea did manage to save the other in the 3-1 win which saw the Red Devils leapfrog Leicester back into second. In United's previous game, relegation-threatened West Brom had three attempts. Again, the first of those went in when Mbaye Diagne headed home in the second minute before the £375,000-a-week goalkeeper denied Robert Snodgrass and Diagne later on to hold on for a point.
De Gea has played almost 2,500 minutes this season while understudy Dean Henderson has just surpassed 1,000 - the vast majority of which have come in the cups.
United have just eight clean sheets in the Premier League from 25 matches - half of which have come in 0-0 draws against the so-called 'Big Six'.

But Scholes is not convinced De Gea can be trusted any longer.
He told BT Sport: "The clean sheet record is not good enough.
“We mentioned it before the game, I think that is the biggest weakness in this team.
“David again, so sloppy, it's becoming a real problem, having the confidence in your goalkeeper, and short corners, United had one out for two or three corners, this is the one where David again, can you catch that? He punches it into a really bad area.”
