David De Gea Wins His First Premier League Golden Glove Award
David De Gea kept his 18th clean sheet against West Ham United in the Premier League, meaning he wins the 2017/18 Golden Glove award.
The Spanish stopper has 18 clean sheets to his name with one league game remaining.
But he cannot be caught. Manchester City's Ederson has 16 clean sheets, while Spurs' Hugo Lloris and Chelsea's Thibaut Courtois are both on 15 clean sheets.
He claims his first Golden Glove award following a £18.9 million transfer from Atletico Madrid in 2011.
An impressive achievement considering the defensive players he's had in front of him this season.

An incredible achievement for David De Gea to win the 2017/18 Golden Glove. With the defence he's had in front of him and the sheer brilliance of the saves he makes on a weekly basis, it's thoroughly deserved.

Dead performance from United but 2nd place confirmed and @D_DeGea finally wins his first career golden glove. Well overdue.
