Twitter reacts as David de Gea reaches 100 clean sheets for Manchester United in the Premier League
Manchester United hosted Liverpool today in 0-0 draw. It was a match with very few highlights, but amidst all the action, David de Gea reached a landmark for Manchester United, that is he reached 100 clean sheets for the Red Devils in the Premier League.
In today's match though, David de Gea had very little to do as he was untroubled for large parts of the game. The defenders in front of him were really at their best as Chris Smalling, and Victor Lindelof commanded their box very well. Full backs, Luke Shaw and Ashley Young also dealt with Sadio Mane and Mohammed Salah brilliantly.
The Spanish Dave has been Manchester United's best player for some time now, and that can be known by the fact that David de Gea has won the Sir Matt Busby player of the year award 4 times in the last 5 years.
Also, the Spaniard is considered as one of the best goalkeepers in the world, and almost no one in the world matches his agility and reflexes. That game against Tottenham Hotspurs went a long way in proving just how good the goalkeeper is and how privileged United are in having David de Gea as their number one.
His contract runs out in 2020 and Manchester United will be very keen to extend it. Nevertheless, David de Gea today became the seventh keeper in the history of the Premier League to keep 100 clean sheets for the same club and the second to do so for Manchester United after Peter Schmeichel in the Premier League and Twitter didn't leave this alone.
