Re: International Matches Discussion Thread
De Gea has been solid after the Tottenham game really and has been one of the reasons we've remained in the game at times. His performance against Stoke was his best performance so far this season after the pundits were predicting he'd struggle against a team like Stoke. If it wasn't for him, we could have lost that game. He was also sensational against Liverpool and a contender for Man of the Match in that game.
He's a fantastic shot stopper and he's much more confident when the defence passes back to him and his distribution it spot on. He has done alright catching balls when they are crossed in but he does get beaten to the ball at times and doesn't win it when he should. He hasn't been that effective on corners and seems to leave it to the others to knock it out of the box but other than that, he's been solid since mid-September time.
