David De Gea pulled off a terrific save for Man United v Norwich at 0-0 [GIF]
It has almost gone unnoticed, but David De Gea has been excellent during Manchester United’s recent five-game winning run in the Premier League.
The Spaniard silenced most of his critics with some crucial stops as Manchester United romped home to the Premier League title last season.
And, it is a measure of his influence now that De Gea is barely mentioned despite excellent consistency in goal for David Moyes’ side.
On Saturday, it was very much the case again as the Manchester United number one pulled off a terrific diving save at 0-0 in the eventual 1-0 victory over Norwich.
De Gea palmed away an effort from Russ Martin and got enough of a hand on it to ensure it evaded Wes Hoolahan.
