Former Tottenham star laments poor finishing.
De Gea made 11 saves as United clung on to Marcus Rashford's excellent first half strike.
It's easy for Tottenham to hide behind De Gea's brilliance, but the goalkeeper's saves showed Spurs have work to do.
Former Spurs midfielder Micky Hazard praised De Gea, and said himself that Tottenham must improve their finishing.
Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane all missed chances to convert past the United goalkeeper.
I really do not know how we lost that game, their goalie was incredible but I have to say we lost because we finished badly, they had 1 great chance and score, lost count of ours that we missed, gutted COYSSSSS— Micky Hazard (@1MickyHazard) January 13, 2019
In fairness to United, they had a few good chances too early in the second half, with Paul Pogba missing three.
Tottenham dominated the last 20-30 minutes of the match, and came up against an inspired goalkeeper.
Next time they are unlikely to be so wasteful, and will be thankful that the next match is against a porous Fulham defence.
