Huddersfield’s Jonas Lossl pulls off extraordinary Save of the Season against Stoke

If David De Gea had done this people would be losing their minds

David De who?

Huddersfield’s Jonas Lossl produced a Save of the Season contender against Stoke at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting thought he’d equalised for the visitors with an acrobatic effort from close range but was denied by a sensational stop from the on-loan keeper.

It was a truly stunning save.

David De Gea has dominated Match of the Day’s Save of the Season award ever since its inception in 2013.

But Man United’s Spanish keeper will have to do something incredible to top this effort from Lossl.

The save came at the end of a flurry of shots from the Potters.

Lossl made a solid save from the initial corner and two goalline clearances came before the show-stopping finale.

The Huddersfield fans sounded their appreciation for their side’s last-ditch defending to ensure the Terriers maintained their one goal lead at half-time.

Tom Ince had given the hosts the lead after ten minutes.

No player had a worse conversion rate in the league before kick-off and the second generation star appeared visibly relieved during his celebrations.

If Huddersfield gone on to take the three points, David Wagner owes his keeper a late Christmas present… or at least a pint.
