Manchester United fans hail David de Gea’s performance vs Manchester City

by Marwan Harraz

Manchester United fans were once again hailing David de Gea after his performance vs Manchester City in the Premier League at the Etihad.

Jose Mourinho found his side trailing 2-0 at the break after a gutless first half performance but the Spaniard was instrumental in what would prove to be an incredible second half.

City appeared to be in cruise control but the Portuguese manager spiced things up in the second 45 minutes and his decisions all paid off.

Paul Pogba managed to grab an incredible, quick fire brace that completely shell-shocked the opposition players with Chris Smalling then grabbing the eventual winner.

However, had it not been for yet another De Gea save, United could’ve very well left the stadium with just a single point to their name.

The Spaniard has put in world class save one after the other, week in, week out for his club and it’s all starting to feel routine.

David’s performances have been at such a consistently high level it’s difficult to imagine any other Red Devil will win the player of the year award.

As embarrassing as it is to the outfield players, it’s a credit to the goalkeeper and his ability that Mourinho surely can’t do without.

There would be no surprises if someone else was in goal that Manchester United would’ve conceded far more goals, especially with a suspect defence.

The lack of solid defending was once more on show time and time again against Manchester City and there’s no doubt that Jose will want to protect his world class goalkeeper more next season.
