De Gea claims February Castrol Save of the Month award

10 Mar 2023

Man Utd goalkeeper's incredible stop to deny Kelechi Iheanacho voted the best in February

David De Gea's incredible stop to deny Kelechi Iheanacho has won February's Castrol Save of the Month award.

De Gea flew across his goalline and pushed out the striker's header at the back post. It was a crucial save at 0-0 of a match that Manchester United went on to win 3-0.

Not only was it important to the outcome of the match, but it also helped him to his 180th clean sheet in all competitions for Man Utd, equalling Peter Schmeichel's club record which he has since surpassed.

It also moved the Spaniard on to 10 clean sheets for the season, only two behind Nick Pope in the race for the Castrol Golden Glove award.

De Gea's save topped a shortlist of six stops that also included his one from the same match to thwart Harvey Barnes

It completes an awards hat-trick for Man Utd, after Marcus Rashford won the EA SPORTS Player of the Month prize and Erik ten Hag was named the Barclays Manager of the Month.
