Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea was disappointed to only come away from the Reds trip to Crystal Palace with a draw.
The Spaniard kept another clean sheet, including a stunning instinctive save off Yannick Bolasie to ensure that Man United didn’t leave Selhurst Park empty-handed but it wasn’t the three points we all wanted.
De Gea was once again at the top of his game, proving why it was so crucial that the club kept him past the end of the transfer window.
It is not the first time this season that United have their goalkeeper to thank for keeping them in a game but despite his impressive display, the Reds couldn’t win all three points. The team’s struggles in front of goal continued as they failed to score for the third game in a row.
A very complicated match, pitty not to add up 3 more points. On Tuesday, a @ChampionsLeague key game!

De Gea will hope he has a quiet night when CSKA Moscow visit Old Trafford in the Champions League. With the strike force seemingly unable to buy a goal at the moment, it is even more important that the shot-stopper is on top form.
United have been fortunate that their defence has been playing well in spite of all the chopping and changing, ensuring they are not losing many games. De Gea has been a key part of making sure his side have been resolute at the back and will want to keep his good run going in Europe in midweek.
