David De Gea pays tribute to The Matrix trilogy with stunning save

Man United goalkeeper David De Gea made an incredible save to deny Sevilla striker Luis Muriel during the round of 16 Champions League fixture

Man United would be away at Fleetwood Town tonight if it wasn’t for David De Gea.

As it was United were taking on Sevilla in the Champions League.

Jose Mourinho set his side up defensively rigid and it worked a treat for the entire first-half.

Well, almost.

A defensive mishap nearly saw Sevilla head into half-time one goal to the good, only for Saint De Gea to pull a rabbit out the hat once again.

It all started, as most United chances to, with some suspect defending.

Victor Lindelof’s dummy fooled no one aside from his own keeper, forcing De Gea into a panicked clearance.

This seems like a sensible place to do a dummy

But that wasn’t the end of it.

Sevilla worked the ball back out to former Man City winger Jesus Navas.

Having seen Navas hit the first man with 99.99% of his crosses in the Premier League you can see why United let him cross.

Except this time he didn’t pick out the first man. He found an unmarked Luis Muriel, who brought a stunning save out of De Gea.

Ahh, I remember him. Let him cross

De Gea to the rescue once again.

It’s worth remembering that he was only a fax machine away from playing behind Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane.

Penny for this thoughts every time Chris Smalling is on the ball.
