Man Utd fans hail David de Gea’s goalkeeping heroics against Norwich City

A selection of Manchester United fans took to Twitter to praise the excellent performance of goalkeeper David de Gea against Norwich City.

The Spaniard’s position between the sticks has been questioned in recent seasons, but he has been nothing short of exceptional this term.

The 31-year-old has been ever-present in the league games for the Red Devils this season, single-handedly winning them points on occasions.

He produced another stellar goalkeeping display against the Canaries at Carrow Road with five saves on either side of United’s winning goal.

Cristiano Ronaldo bagged the sole goal of the game from the penalty spot in the 75th minute, but De Gea was clearly the man of the match.

He denied Teemu Pukki from opening the scoring before the hour mark with a splendid save, and came up with a better one after United took the lead.

The Spaniard denied the Canaries the equaliser with a superb diving save towards his right at full stretch.

Some of the club’s faithful were delighted with his showing.

Twitter reactions:

De Gea has been an undisputed choice in goal for the Premier League and Champions League games this term.

He has certainly answered his critics with consistent performances of the highest level.

The 31-year-old has made a couple of mistakes over the campaign, but those have been outweighed by the number of world-class saves that have been pivotal to United picking up points.

Rangnick would still want to provide De Gea with more protection.

There is plenty of room for improvement for the defenders, who need to step up and limit the shots on target.
