Schmeichel leads praise for De Gea's double save
Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel has led the praise for David De Gea, following the Spaniard's miraculous double save against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday.
Our no.1 produced a world-class contribution in the 70th minute by not once but twice denying Romain Saiss from close range, keeping out the initial header before blocking the fierce follow-up.
The moment of goalkeeping magic from De Gea proved to be absolutely vital, because United went on to secure a vital 1-0 victory thanks to Mason Greenwood's third goal of the season so far.
