It might be easy for fans to start taking a competent keeper for granted after a while, but there’s nothing like the nervous feeling that a dodgy keeper emits to the entire defence.
Man United are currently losing to Spurs because of a dreadful piece of keeping from David de Gea, but they are also losing because Hugo Lloris has made an incredible save to deny Anthony Martial:

It just goes to show how important it is to have a great goalkeeper who’s on top form, and it could be the difference between the sides tonight.
