Arsenal vs Manchester United: De Gea matches record for number of saves in Premier League

Sports

Manchester United goalkeeper, David De Gea, on Saturday matched the record for number of saves in a Premier League game.

De Gea made 14 saves against Arsenal, as they won 3-1 at the Emirates.

No goalkeeper has made more in a single Premier League fixture in history.

The Spain international, who came close to leaving for Real Madrid some years ago, only conceded Alexandre Lacazette’s goal, after Aaron Ramsey beat the offside trap.

De Gea denied Lacazette, Alexis Sanchez and Hector Bellerin, as the Gunners 12-match unbeaten home run ended.

“I told him after the match that what I saw today was the best goalkeeper in the world,” United manager Jose Mourinho said afterwards.

“Big matches need goalkeepers to be there for you, when the team needs them, but I think [from] all of our players, the effort was magnificent.”
