He made how many saves?
David De Gea has been widely considered one of the top goalkeepers in the world for several seasons now, and the Spanish international proved once again exactly why he’s such a hot commodity.
Despite Manchester United coming away with a 3-1 win over Arsenal on Saturday at the Emirates Stadium, the Red Devils were forced to defend for their lives throughout the encounter.
That’s where De Gea figured into the picture.
Krul’s mark came while he was the starting keeper with Newcastle in 2013 against Tottenham, while Mannone did so the following the year against Chelsea.
This season, De Gea hadn’t made more than seven saves in a match, which came against Chelsea on Nov. 5.
According to Opta’s information, De Gea, Krul and Mannone hold the most saves in a top-flight match dating back to the 2003/04 season. No goalkeeping data exists prior to that season.Follow @MattReedFutbol
