Ole Gunnar Solskjaer pays David De Gea a compliment after Spurs heroics

Manchester United caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes David de Gea could soon become the club’s greatest ever goalkeeper.

The Spaniard produced one of the finest performances of his eight-year United career to keep a clean sheet in the Red Devils’ 1-0 win against Tottenham at Wembley.

He made saves from Dele Alli, Toby Alderweireld and Harry Kane and his 11 saves on the day was the most recorded by any goalkeeper in a single match so far this term.

On De Gea’s performance he Solskjaer said. “There’s one or two fantastic saves but the rest is about concentration and being in the right position. “We’ve had some great goalkeepers at this club but now he’s challenging Edwin and Peter for the number 1 spot historically.”

The victory, United’s sixth on the bounce under Solskjaer.
