David De Gea ranked
Man United & David De Gea
The plaudits are still gushing in for Man United goalie David De Gea following last weekend’s 3-1 win at Arsenal.
Looking back on the game, Arsenal will wonder how they did not get more points.
Arsenal had a ridiculous amount of shots (33) in a game they could well have drawn or even won.
Sure, the Arsenal defence made some basic errors, but it was David De Gea that was the difference.
De Gea made 14 saves for Manchester United at Arsenal, a joint Premier League record.
‘Sir Alex Ferguson’s best signings’
On Monday night on BBC radio, Phil Neville talked about De Gea’s importance to Man United.
The pundit echoed sentiments heard since the weekend that De Gea must currently be considered the best goalie in the world.
On where the Spanish goalie ranks in the Man United annals, Neville still picked Peter Schmeichel in first place.
Nevertheless, Neville commented “David De Gea has to be one of the best signings Sir Alex ever made”.
On ‘biased pundits’
In a separate discussion, Phil Neville aired his thoughts on all the criticism pundits have been getting on social media recently.
Over the weekend, Ian Wright got into a war of tweets with Arsenal fans for some of his thoughts after the Man United game.
Neville, who played for Man United and Everton in his playing days, agreed that it’s a minefield for commentators. He noted You get labelled ‘biased’ if you praise them and ‘Judas’ if you don’t”.
