After Saturday’s performance, David Moyes owes David De Gea a pint or two.
The Spanish keeper came in for a fair bit of stick during his first few months at Old Trafford, but since then he has developed into one of the division’s top goalkeepers.
And if anyone thought otherwise, just have a look at the save he made on Saturday at a crucial point in the 2-1 win over Sunderland.
Not only was the save of genuine world class quality, it came at not just a crucial point in the game, but in David Moyes’ tenure as manager.
After three Premier League defeats in four, and after going 1-0 down to bottom of the table Sunderland within five minutes, who knows what may have happened had Emmanuele Giaccherini’s header found the top corner and made it 2-0.
And it would have done had it not been for the stunning reactions of De Gea.
The former Atletico man somehow managed to claw the header around the post, for perhaps the save of the season so far – and no doubt what could prove to be one of the most crucial moments in Manchester United‘s season considering the circumstances.
Do you think De Gea’s stop is the save of the season so far?
