What to love about United’s young Spanish goalkeeper? He’s handsome and he’s a great goalkeeper.

With United’s big guns absent, 20- year-old goalkeeper De Gea filled the void. The gangly Spaniard did not let anyone down against Stoke’s aerial bombardment. His onehanded save from Andy Wilkinson soon after United had gone ahead was breathtaking. Stoke countered the ball broke to the onrushing Andy Wilkinson, who burst into the box and unleashed a stinging shot bound for the top corner, but the Spaniard reacted very well to deflect it wide.

Another great effort from de Gea was then required when Jonathan Walters hit a rasping shot bound for the far bottom corner. The young stopper dived to his right to get a small but vital touch, ensuring a halftime lead for the league leaders. However, aerially De Gea is still a real novice and struggles to deal with any kind of pressure while the ball is in the air.
