Impressive David De Gea statistic as world-class Man Utd ace pivotal against Arsenal

Man Utd came away with a 3-1 win over Arsenal at the Emirates on Saturday evening, but David De Gea was crucial in that victory.

United were 2-0 up after just 11 minutes with Jesse Lingard adding his second of the game in the second half to secure all three points for the visitors.

It was an impressive attacking display from United, especially early on, as they pressured Arsenal into mistakes and were clinical in front of goal.

However, the Gunners were also impressive as they attacked throughout in a pulsating encounter, and they peppered the Man Utd goal with attempt after attempt.

As seen in the tweets below, that was made clear with a bit of history for De Gea, as aside from the fact that Arsenal had 33 shots on goal, the Spanish international made 14 saves, the joint-most by a goalkeeper in a single Premier League game.

They included great reaction saves, double saves as well as stops that showcased his agility, and he provided further proof for those who argue that he’s the best in the world in his position.

That debate will go on as there will be many who prefer other options, but De Gea is certainly proving his worth to Man Utd and has certainly established himself as one of the best with saves like those seen on Saturday evening.
