Arsenal dominated most part of the game but just couldn’t convert the chances created,the score doesn’t reflect the game,the better team lost very unlucky!
David De Gea proved once again why he is Manchester United and Spain’s number 1 after another heroic display.
Despite failing to keep a clean sheet,De Gea denied Arsenal from scoring on numerous occasions with world class saves.Arsenal could’ve easily scored at least 3 goals all game but Dave was having none of it,he is undoubtedly one of Premier League’s best goalkeepers.
