Manchester United walked out of the Emirates with all three points and that was mainly due to the heroics of goalkeeper David De Gea infront of the goal. United won the match with a scoreline of 3-1 as they played the final quarter of the match with 10 men.

Even though Lingard scored two goals on the night but it was David De Gea who came up with a man of the match performance. The Spaniard produced 14 games during the game as he kept out some fine efforts from Arsenal’s forward line.

And with these 14 saves the United No 1 has now equalled the existing most number of saves record in the English Premier League.

The 14 saves made by de Gea equals the record jointly held by Tim Krul, set in a game for Newcastle United against Tottenham in November 2013, and Vito Mannone – who was playing for Sunderland against Chelsea in April 2014 – since Opta began collecting data in the 2003-04 Premier League season.
