De Gea nominated for Premier League award

Thursday 05 January 2023 14:00

Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea has been named on the shortlist for the Premier League’s Save of the Month award.

The December award also encompasses games played in November, due to the break in the season for the 2022 World Cup.

And it is a De Gea stop from our 2-1 win over Fulham on 13 November which has been nominated for the monthly accolade.

Garnacho won it for the Reds late on, but where would we have been without David De Gea?

In the second half, with the Reds leading following Christian Eriksen's early effort, Fulham centre-back Tim Ream rose high at the back post before directing a powerful header which was seemingly destined to nestle in the back of the net.

De Gea had other ideas, and the Spaniard reacted superbly to turn the effort over the crossbar.

After eventually conceding to former Red Dan James, United went on to clinch the win and a vital three points courtesy of Alejandro Garnacho's last-gasp goal.

In our most recent fixture against Bournemouth, David showed his quality once more on his landmark 510th appearance for the Reds, starting the new year in great form with three impressive stops to keep a clean sheet against the Cherries.

Voting for the award is now open, and it will close at 12:00 GMT on Monday 9 January. To give De Gea your backing, go to the Premier League’s voting page, here.

Well done on your nomination, David, and good luck!
