David De Gea makes a full-stretch save to deny Sergio Aguero's header.

De Gea wins Man-of-the-Match poll

Wednesday 29 January 2020 22:59

David De Gea was voted Man of the Match after Manchester United’s 1-0 victory over Manchester City on Wednesday night.

While it was a superb away victory for the Reds, the 3-1 loss to our rivals in the first leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final clash meant we were eliminated from the competition, 3-2 on aggregate.

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.

Ole has plenty of praise for his players, despite our Carabao Cup exit...

The Spaniard made several superb saves at the Etihad and twice denied Sergio Aguero in the first period with full-length stops, while he also was forced to come flying off his line just before the break to steal the ball away from the feet of City’s no.10, who was bearing down on goal.

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%
