The Premier League 'Save Of The Season' Shortlist Is Just A Highlight Reel Of David De Gea

The Premier League 'Save Of The Season' Shortlist Is Just A Highlight Reel Of David De Gea

In the 88th minute, Manchester United were being pinned back by the attacking threat of Manchester City when Leroy Sane crossed it into the master of last minute goals, Sergio Aguero.

The Etihad stood with their arms aloft, preparing for celebration. Almost everyone thought it was going to rustle into the back of the net. Except one man.

Unfortunately for City fans, the man who has saved Jose Mourinho's backside on numerous occasions this season pulled off another save of the season contenders to deny the striker.

Head in hands, Aguero and the thousands in attendance couldn't quite believe it. The world's best goalkeeper had done it again.

Like he has done on so many occasions this year.

The importance of his game winning save could prove vital in the coming weeks, if Manchester City do slip up again, and Paul Pogba was seen praising the Spaniard at full-time, pointing at him before giving De Gea a hug for his heroics.

It was a magnificent second half display from Jose Mourinho's side. Not only did they ruin City's predicted title celebrations, but a number of players stepped up to the mark and gave fans hope - and one of those was the often criticised Pogba.

The French midfielder bagged two goals in a matter of minutes to get it back to 2-2, and played a pivotal role throughout - despite a poor outing in the first 45 minutes.
