David de Gea came to Manchester United’s rescue to maintain their 1-0 lead over Leicester City.
The best goalkeeper in the world is pulling off stunning saves weekly at this rate, with additional pressure not helped by United’s inadequate defence.
De Gea stood his ground well as Jamie Vardy used his acrobatic flexes to have a powerful effort on goal. The shot slightly troubled the Spain no.1 as the ball dropped to his right.
Every man and his dog knows De Gea could do with a stronger defence in front of him. It’s not as if we don’t think he is coping, De Gea is the best in the business, but it sure be an objective for the club in the summer to bolster the defence with world-class quality.
It’s not worth thinking about United without De Gea between the goal posts. And if recent reports, as per The Sun, are anything to go by, he’s in talks over a long-term contract at the club.
