Man Utd beat Tottenham 1-0 in the Premier League on Sunday
Last Updated: 13/01/19 10:32pm
Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea made an incredible 11 second half saves to keep Tottenham out on Sunday. Watch just a few of them!
Tottenham peppered the Man Utd goal with shots after half-time, looking to get back level after Marcus Rashford gave the visitors the lead in the 44th minute.
But they were met with an inspired De Gea, who kept out shots from all distances and angles as he guided Man Utd to a six successive Premier League win under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Gary Neville was on co-commentary during the game, and 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!”
Robbie Keane added in the studio after the game: “De Gea is probably the best goalkeeper in the world with his feet. Maybe sometimes you have to change it and get the ball a bit higher.

“I would go into a game playing against someone like him, knowing that he is good with his feet, so maybe get a bit more power and height on the ball.
“You saw on a few occasions that he saved with his feet. He is so quick and sharp with adjusting his feet, so you need to mix it up.”
