VIDEO SEE: What was that De Gea?!  'Keeper makes bizarre mistake as Man Utd surrender early FA Cup lead against Everton

Everton defender Conor Coady poked home a first-half equalizer in Friday's FA Cup third round clash against Manchester United thanks to an almighty blunder from goalkeeper David de Gea.

 It looked like Erik ten Hag's side would have a field day against the Premier League strugglers when summer signing Antony opened the scoring with four minutes played.

 The Brazilian forward managed to get on the end of a Marcus Rashford cross from the left to give the home side an early lead.

 And United continued to give Everton headaches in the final third.  But against the run of play, a hopeful cross from Neal Maupay somehow found England international Coady, who tapped in from close range.

 As you can see from the highlight below, De Gea allowed the ball to bobble through his legs at the near post in what was a bizarre sequence at Old Trafford.  What was he thinking?

De Gea has recently agreed to a pay cut at United in a bid to extend his stay.

 When asked if he would finish his career at Old Trafford, the Spaniard told The Guardian: "I hope so. I was saying this is my club, I've been here many, many years and it's a huge honor to be here and I 'm so happy here.

 “Yeah, I'm very relaxed [about the contract], just focused on training, performing as best as I can.  But, for sure, it's going to end in a good way.”

 The former Atletico Madrid goalkeeper, who currently earns £375k-a-week at the club, has been in fine form for United this season.  In fact, Ten Hag's men haven't conceded a Premier League goal at Old Trafford since September 4.
