Five great De Gea saves

David De Gea produced a brilliant save at the Stadium of Light to deny Emanuele Giaccherini what seemed like a certain goal, a save Reds legend Peter Schmeichel described as "one of the best I've ever seen in the Premier League".

United's Spanish shot-stopper has good form in the stunning save category. Recently, we asked young keeper Ben Amos to talk us through some of De Gea's finest saves. How do you think his stop at Sunderland compares? Watch it in all its glory in our match highlights package on MUTV Online

The ball's come around a defender, which can be tough, although the Madrid player probably couldn't have hit it in any other spot in that situation."
