It was almost like David De Gea was waiting for Dominic Calvert-Lewin to arrive at his doorstep.

The Manchester United goalkeeper’s awful lapse in judgment put Everton ahead before three minutes were played at Goodison Park on Sunday.

Played a safe ball into his box, De Gea dithered with the ball as Everton’s in-form striker closed him down.

De Gea finally attempted to clear the ball as a leaping Calvert-Lewin made himself big to block the attempt.

The forward did that and got a fine result, the ball bounding off his boot and inside the yawning cage for 1-0.
