Southampton plan to throw everything at Man Utd keeper De Gea

Manchester United keeper David de Gea has been warned to expect an aerial bombardment from Southampton tomorrow.

Manchester United keeper David de Gea has been warned to expect an aerial bombardment from Southampton tomorrow.

De Gea’s vulnerability at dealing with set pieces was exposed again by Nemanja Vidic’s late own goal in United’s narrow 3-2 win over Fulham last weekend.

Saints midfielder Adam Lallana is backing striker Rickie Lambert and towering defender Jos Hooiveld to leave the Spaniard reeling.

Free-kick specialist Lallana said: “Set pieces are a massive part of the game and we work on them day in, day out in training.

“We have got good target men going into the box so hopefully they can cause problems.”
