    Incredible save from a deflection to palm it off the line. That was top draw David De Gea, Dhaslim like (Street Fighter II reference).

    It might not be the most spectacular save since it came after a scramble in the box, but that’s probably the best save I’ve ever seen live. It’s a goal, no other keeper in the Premier League/world saves that intentionally, but he somehow manages to keep it out. The two steps before diving with more force from his legs, instead of diving too early and not reaching it, as well as the handling of the ball away from goal... it’s just shows why he is the best goalkeeper in the world.

    Really?

    I wouldn't be surprised if they've been peddling that opinion to be honest.

    Agreed. One important match-winning save, and very good all around. Didn't have to make a lot of saves and thats the way it should be. He is the best in the world also because of his ability to stay focused even when he isn't involved in the game too much, imo.

    One of those saves that had everyone wanting to play in net the next day at school. Top stuff.

    Who said that? They’re usually (understandably) raving about him

    Looking over my shoulder.
    What on earth? Surely they were being facetious?

    The save was out of this world! Put Dave in the Avengers and he would save the world as well.

    Any other goalie, and everyone would be raving about it come next spring.

    What also impressed me yesterday was his distribution - he kept it simple, short, and his long range efforts were mostly spot on. Very impressive.

    Expected better from him, distribution wasn't great either.

    Made some great saves in the 2nd half. Bad error in the first. Herrera should have headed it rather than volleyed though, and Smalling shouldn't have just fallen over.

    Misjudged the bounce, similar to what happened to Pickford, shit happens to even the best, he still made 3 top saves in the second have that allowed us to steal a point.

    I think this is probably the worst form I've seen him in, doesn't look intense at all. He has nothing to play for but his salary. He has years of credit built up and can just point to the mess in front of him and get in his car and leave. It is a worry and I wouldn't want to lose him but it is genuinely at the point of asking the question "what is the point of him even being here?".

    Good and bad from him. Made a mess for the goal but kept us in it in the 2nd.
    Overall a pretty poor form tbh.

    That mistake was De Gea from his first season.

    Still shocked he made that mistake. Well, he is only a mortal.

    Would like to see him with a settled defence in front of him (something that Schmeichel and VDS were allowed to get).

    So Courtois has named his top three in the world at the moment,
    1/ Ter Stegen
    2/ Allison
    3/ Oblak
    No Neuer and more importantly from our perspective no De Gea. What do you think?
    Personally, I think Dave merits a place in the top three. However, he is not exactly sparkling of late. Think of the World Cup for example. He didn’t exactly cover himself in glory. However, that said he still performs to a very high and consistent standard for us most weeks. I believe that he is better than Allison but Allison is benefiting from Liverpool’s strong defense this year. The guy has nothing to do (like Dave a few years ago) and because of this he is in Courtois’ top 3. Silly choice. Anyway what’s everyone else’s view?
