Manchester United star David de Gea has proven himself to be difference during the crucial victory over Tottenham.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men travelled to Wembley in the search of a win as the race for the top four heats up.
United went ahead through Marcus Rashford and were grateful to De Gea as they managed to hold onto a precious clean-sheet.
The Spaniard was the best player on the pitch on Sunday with the majority of fans even forgetting how important the youngster, Paul Pogba and Victor Lindelof also were in the victory.
Supporters are now calling for David’s long-term future to be resolved and rightfully so as he has proven himself too important to let go.

Lindelof’s performance went under the radar but he was partially responsible for how poorly Harry Kane performed.
As Solskjaer had said, the majority of De Gea’s saves were ones one would expect him to make given his quality.
However, there were a couple that were fantastic while the majority were still important saves nonetheless.
David had already proved before that he was amongst the best goalkeepers in the world if not the best but the win over Tottenham was a brilliant reminder of his quality.
