    You may want to have a little think about that one.

    For me he's definitely our best ever, but I'd put big Pete's performance against Newcastle at the top. That was a title winning performance.

    Is it sad that whilst I was wowed once or twice, I'm not crazy impressed because we've seen this from him (too) many many times before.

    Actually thought he started a bit poor because once again his tendency to stay on his line meant our defenders had to unneccesarily go backwards towards our goal a bit too deep with Arsenal players breathing down their neck.

    Meh. Another standard top level De God performance for me. I expect this to happen because he's so good.

    I hope it's just you, because anyone underrating the save from Lukaku and then the double from Lacazette/Sanchez is batshit crazy

    Because McManaman is a dribbling idiot. It's mindbending how he didn't get it - I can't remember a better keeping performance.

    Without question his best performance, I say it because of the context/magnitude of the game itself. Must win match given where we are and he came up trumps once again.

    That double save in itself is possibly his best save during his time here, had no right to stop that Sanchez shot.

    Jose said to him post match, 'you're best goalkeeper in the world' :cool:

    Thanks for that, it was around 55 mins. I was dealing with dodgy streams from half time up until the 59th, so missed that as well as their goal. Top double save though, I get the hype.

    The saves he makes every week are the ones other keepers let in.

    That for me was one of the three best goalkeeping performances I have seen by a United keeper in 55 years of watching United. Top 3 performances were:
    Schmeichel at Newcastle in 1996; De Gea v Everton 2014; De Gea at Arsenal 2017.

    It’s becoming clear that he’s our best goalkeeper in club history.

    People with short memories or are Millennials. Schmeical had a whole database of games like that and not just in the PL.

    First half hour was one of the worst I have seen from DDG since his first 2 seasons at United. However, everything after that was sensational, extraordinary and out of this world.

    His reaction for the Sanchez save was unbelieveable.

    There’s little doubt he’s now the best in the world. We need to make sure he’s here when he reaches his peak in about 6 years time. I’d throw the clubs coffers at him and just say ‘have the lot’.

    DDG is like Messi, he has these performances so frequently it becomes a norm.

    I'm warning the director of the game not to repeat Arsenal goal,

    DDG might save it:lol:.
    He was brilliant hope he stays forever our GK.

    Some of them were straight at him but the save on Lacazette early on and the double save are sure fire goals they were unbelievable. I concur this was the best goalkeeping performance I’ve ever seen

    The only great save he made was the double-one (Lacazette's low shot followed by the stop with his legs from Sanchez). Arguably, the Lukaku deflection save was very good. The rest were regular saves for him. You just can't beat someone of his level from 25 yards out unless it's a truly exceptional attempt.

    Van Der Sar for Fulham against Arsenal, the year before he joined United.

    Maybe because that was then and this is now. So its fresher in the memory. Schmeichel had some world class games though, and of course the last minute penalty save against Arsenal in the semi final. He also made some pretty big errors though that a lot of people forget about. DDG is at least on par with him and will surpass him. If not now definitely in the future.
