Attention kids! The class is in session.
Manchester United's David De Gea's 'How To Be The Greatest Goalkeeper: 101' was probably the best educational experience you would have loved to sit through today.
In a Premier League matchup between ManU and Tottenham Hotspurs earlier today, De Gea totalled a grand eleven saves against the Lilywhites some of which were otherworldly.
Here are the match highlights:
His 11 saves gave the Spaniard a new record for making the most number of saves in a game without giving up a single goal.
His efforts were recognised by match-commentator, Gary Neville who said: “De Gea's been inspired. He's brilliant with his feet, closing the angle off and kicking it away… He'll have to frame those boots at the end of the game!”
After Marcus Rashford gave United a 1-0 lead in the 44th minute, it was De Gea's exceptional performance especially in the second half which has now added to ManU's still interim coach Ole Gunnar's undefeated winning streak.
Before Gunnar took over as the manager for the club, they were eight points behind their age-old rival Arsenal. Around three weeks later, Manchester United are now equal with the Gunners for the fifth place with 41 points apiece.
After De Gea's phenomenal show, he was named the Man of the Match.
