All of the stats behind David De Gea’s match-winning performance for Man United vs Spurs

The statistics surrounding the incredible performance of Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea versus Tottenham have come to the fore online this evening.

Spurs 0-1 Man United

Mauricio Pochettino’s men welcomed the Red Devils to Wembley, hoping to keep pace with the Premier League’s top-2, Liverpool and Manchester City.

The North Londoners headed into proceedings aware that a 3-point haul would have seen them, at least temporarily, leapfrog City into 2nd in the English top-flight.

Manchester United, meanwhile, were intent on keeping their perfect record under new manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer alive.

Since the Norwegian tactician’s appointment at Old Trafford last month, United had picked up 5 straight victories, 4 of which had come in the Premier League.

And, when all was said and done, keep their winning-streak alive was precisely what the Red Devils managed in London this evening.

Marcus Rashford notched the only goal of the clash, latching on to a perfectly-weighted Paul Pogba pass to confidently slot home past Hugo Lloris on the stroke of half-time.

De Gea heroics

However, Manchester United’s star performance came at the other end of the pitch, courtesy of goalkeeper David De Gea.

Spanish international De Gea was in absolutely inspired form at Wembley, with the 28-year-old’s second-half showing, during which he genuinely looked unbeatable, having since given rise to a number of remarkable statistics:
