De Gea plunged in MU and Premier League, “European yellow gloves” awarded?

With 7 mistakes leading to goals conceded from last season, De Gea is having the worst index in the English Premier League. And so, it is not surprising that MU’s “guard” only kept clean sheets 8 times, inferior to other peers.

Liverpool bumped towards the Premier League championship 2019/20. Despite owning a famous line with the trident Salah – Mane – Firmino, but in fact the new defense is the foundation of the Anfield team’s success. In particular, goalkeeper Alisson Becker really has another impressive season.

According to 90min statistics, Alisson has 14 clean sheets for Liverpool in all competitions in this 2019/20 season. On the European level, the Brazilian goalkeeper has the record of keeping 4 clean sheets in Europe.

Last season, Alisson was also the owner of the English Premier League “Golden Glove” season 2018/19 with 21 clean sheets. However, in the English Premier League this season, Liverpool’s janitor is inferior to Burnley’s Nick Pope (Alisson: 10 matches, Nick Pope: 11 matches).

So who are the 3 goalkeepers who are keeping better clean sheets than Alisson? Whoscored’s statistics show that Real Madrid’s “surplus” – goalkeeper Keylor Navas, is showing a bright performance with PSG and becoming the goalkeeper with the highest number of clean sheets in Europe at the moment (only calculated) in the top 5 leagues in Europe, including England, Spain, Germany, France and Italy).

On all fronts, the Costa Rican goalkeeper has a record of 16 clean sheets. If PSG’s match at Strasbourg last weekend was not postponed, Navas may have increased his achievement to 17. Behind Navas main Jan Oblak – a familiar opponent in the La Liga Golden Gloves race in the years. before.

Oblak continues to show why he is the most important name at Atletico Madrid. In the 6 seasons he played for Wanda Metroplitano, Oblak always kept at least 18 clean sheets per season. This season, Oblak has 15 clean sheets, although Atletico does not have a really good season.

Having had 15 clean sheets as Jan Oblak, it was Manuel Neuer. Neuer has long been named the best goalkeeper in the world, and the fact that he has been in stable form for many years is evident. Keep in mind that no Bundesliga goalie has been able to make the top 10 best clean sheets this season in Europe, except Neuer.

There is a goalkeeper who is not known but impressing in Europe this season, it is David Soria of the Spanish team – Getafe. Surprisingly, Soria also has 14 clean sheets in all competitions, on par with Alisson. Behind Navas, Oblak, Neuer, Alisson and David Soria, it is Man City’s Ederson with 13 clean sheets. The Brazilian competitor with Alisson kept 13 clean sheets, less than half of the 28 games played in all competitions in the 2018/19 season of this goalkeeper.

A few other strange names are also making a personal impression in the 2019/20 season. These are Unai Simon (Athletic Bilbao), Predrag Rajkovic (Stade Reims) Steve Mandanda (Marseille), Anthony Lopes (Lyon), Rui Patricio (Wolves). All goalkeepers have 12 clean sheets by the end of the first week of March.

De Gea has naturally been the main target in the MU goal since the Atletico Madrid move to Old Trafford in 2011, with 393 appearances.

But with a series of mistakes this season, culminating in a careless ball kick hitting Calvert-Lewin foot into the net recently, the future of the Spanish goalkeeper is being questioned.

Although Solskjaer still praised De Gea as the best goalkeeper in the world, answering the reporter’s question about the 7 errors that directly lead to goals conceded since the beginning of the season, there are still many worries from the upper floor of MU about the performance and focus of the 29-year-old temple watchman in Premier League.

The Norwegian teacher still believes in De Gea after a difficult time a year ago, in the hope that the student will soon regain his form.
