Man Utd boss Ferguson: De Gea excellent against Spurs

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has again been defended by manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

Ferguson insists De Gea was not to blame for their draw at Tottenham.

De Gea had made a number of excellent saves at White Hart Lane but his weak injury-time punch gifted Tottenham an equaliser in the 1-1 draw.

Ferguson said: "He had a fantastic game. I remember talking about how well he played and then, 30 seconds from time, the ball park changes. Outfield players maybe make 20 mistakes in a game. But keepers are in a crucial position. We are OK with him.

"It is unfortunate for the lad but he has to deal with it. We will help him. I think we are quite good at that."
