DAVID DE GEA arrived at Manchester United training to face the music after his howlers gifted Chelsea a win in the FA Cup semi-final on Sunday.
The Spanish goalkeeper endured a horrid afternoon as his gaffes cost United a shot at silverware in the FA Cup final.
He arrived at Carrington looking glum as preparations turn to the game against West Ham on Wednesday.
Red Devils fans fumed at De Gea’s hapless performance yesterday, with some declaring he is “finished” as a result.

It is not the first time the shot-stopper – who is facing calls to be axed by former United keeper Mark Bosnich – has come up with a crucial error after being let off the hook on SEVEN occasions.
Pressure is mounting on De Gea’s position as No1 at Old Trafford and English young gun Dean Henderson, on loan at Sheffield United, could take his spot.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s side lost 3-1 to Frank Lampard’s Chelsea and the Norwegian boss will have to dust his side off as the race for the top four concludes.
He last night fired a warning shot at his keeper, as he said Mason Mount’s long-range shot should have been stopped “100 out of 100 times”.
Solskjaer said: “Obviously, everyone has to perform.
“Everyone has a chance every time we perform to stake a claim in the team.
“David knows he should have saved the second goal, that’s done now and we have to look forward to Wednesday.
“It’s hard for a keeper to make amends, apart from David making two or three fantastic saves after.
“You always question your decisions.
“I can’t speak for his confidence but he is mentally very strong.
“He knows he should save that one 100 times out of 100, but that’s football for you.
“I made the decision to play him and mentally he was ready for it.”
Skipper Harry Maguire made it to training despite suffering a nasty head clash with team-mate Eric Bailly during the game at Wembley.
Former Leicester defender Maguire sported a slight cut to his eyebrow as he drove into the United training complex.
Bailly has been given the all-clear after he was stretchered off and rushed to hospital but will miss the remainder of the season after a concussion.
