De Gea Matches EPL record with Superb saves


An Inspired Manchester United Goalee, David de Gea, tonight at the Emirates matched a Premier League record by making 14 saves as his team coasted home to a 3-1 victory.

De Gea’s heroics saw him level with a record initially held by Dutch Goalkeeper, Tim Krul, set in a game for Newcastle United against Tottenham in November 2013, and Vito Mannone - who was playing for Sunderland against Chelsea in April 2014 - since Opta began collecting data in the 2003-04 Premier League season.

The Spain international saves made certain that a Valencia 4th minute goal and a Jesse Lingard brace saw the Red Devils narrow the gap to five points behind league leaders and rivals Manchester City ahead of next weekend's derby at Old Trafford.


De Gea reacted superbly to stop Romelu Lukaku turning into his own goal in stoppage time at the end of the first half, but even more brilliance was to come after the interval with a sensational double saves, as the game progressed.
