David de Gea bags 2023 February Castrol Save of the Month award
David de Gea wins the Castrol Save of the Month award for February 2023.
Due to his outstanding save in Manchester United’s 3-0 victory over Leicester City, David de Gea has been awarded the Castrol Save of the Month for February.
De Gea won the Carabao Cup with Manchester United in February, and with his 181st clean sheet for the Red Devils, he broke Peter Schmeichel’s record for the most clean sheets in a season.
One of those 181 shutouts was during Man Utd’s convincing 3-0 victory against Leicester on February 19 at Old Trafford.
On that particular day, goals were scored by Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho, but De Gea was as significant, making two saves that were deserving of Castrol Save of the Month nominations.
- Erik Ten Hag reveals why ‘Butcher’ Martinez is so important to United
- Wout Weghorst reveals why he touched “This Is Anfield” sign before Liverpool loss
- Richarlison slams Antonio Conte for his “s**t” role at Tottenham.
Both of them were exceptional enough to win the Castrol Save of the Month award, with one being a rapid reaction save to halt Harvey Barnes when the striker was clean through on goal.
As Kelechi Iheanacho headed the ball down into the bottom left corner of the goal, David De Gea was able to dive over his goal line and somehow palm the ball out of harm’s way with his right hand. This save earned him the trophy.
Alisson Becker, Jordan Pickford, Aaron Ramsdale, and Kepa Arrizabalaga were among the other contenders for the Castrol Save of the Month title for February.
