With the home side dominating the first half without really threatening, the Spaniard was then called into action.

Roberto Firmino beat Chris Smalling and crossed for Matip, who managed to direct a shot towards goal which seemed destined to open the scoring.

But De Gea, as he always seems to, had other ideas.

The Manchester United goalkeeper brilliantly stuck out a leg to somehow claw the ball away off the line.

Mohamed Salah – Liverpool’s best player in the first half – then could only shoot wide after De Gea’s heroics.

Just how many points has the splendid Spaniard earned the Red Devils down the years?
