De Gea wins Man-of-the-Match poll
David De Gea was voted Man of the Match after Manchester United’s 1-0 victory over Manchester City on Wednesday night.
However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men retained a chance of progressing to the Wembley final in March, thanks, in part, to the excellence of De Gea.
On top of this, David reacted superbly to repel Riyad Mahrez’s fierce drive after just eight minutes. Our no.1 again demonstrated his razor-sharp reactions and made the instinctive stop after the ball flicked off a United defender en route to goal.
His outstanding display meant City failed to score for just the second time this season - the other coming against Wolverhampton Wanderers in early October.
Therefore, it was no surprise David was voted Man of the Match by our Official App users, even though Ole felt Nemanja Matic was his star man.
David De Gea - 67%
Harry Maguire - 18%
Brandon Williams 15%
