De Gea scoops award

1203791-25145109-2560-1440David De Gea has been named the PFA Fans’ Player of the Month for November, further proof that the Spaniard is finally beginning to receive the credit he deserves.

The United keeper kept two clean sheets in three games in January, remaining unbeaten at home against Crystal Palace and Hull and conceding just one against Arsenal, as United clinched their first away win of the season. At the Emirates, De Gea was outstanding as United withstood an early onslaught from Arsenal, with the Spaniard pulling off a couple of superb saves to keep the Gunners at bay.

To clinch the award, which is endorsed by the players and supported by the clubs, De Gea saw off competition from Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard, Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero and Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez, with Southampton right-back Nathaniel Clyne and Newcastle midfielder Moussa Sissoko also on the shortlist.
