Manchester United may have lost their 100 per cent record in Saturday’s 2-2 draw against Stoke but the situation could have been worse had it not been for an incredible save from David De Gea.
The Spanish No.1 is well-known for his world-class reactions and his latest save is right up there with his very best in a red shirt.
He won’t be happy to have twice conceded to Eric Choupo-Moting, but he once again has proved that he is up there with the best when it comes to guarding the net.
With the scores locked at 2-2, it looked almost a certainty that Jese had given Stoke the lead once again only to be denied by an amazing stop from De Gea at his near post.
The Stoke forward looked in genuine disbelief that his effort didn’t find the net, with the former Atletico Madrid man once again proving just how instrumental he is to United’s successes.
The Reds still sit top of the table on account of having a superior goal difference to Manchester City, and they have De Gea to thank that they still remain unbeaten for the time being.
This is already one of the saves of the season.
