David de Gea's first Golden Glove award is a fair reflection of how dour and defensive-minded Manchester United have become under Jose Mourinho.

De Gea beat Manchester City's Ederson to grab the top honor as The Citizens' goalkeeper has 16 clean sheets to his name for a second spot.

"I believe that for a club like United, even second place is simply not enough", De Gea told United Review, the club's official match-day programme.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho said David De Gea has been "terrific" after landing a first Golden Glove.

Manchester City's Ederson, who now sits in second place, holds 16 clean sheets having sat out his club's 3-1 victory over Brighton on Wednesday and with one game remaining, can not catch De Gea.

Despite his consistent performances for the Red Devils for the past few seasons, the Spanish custodian had never won the golden glove award, which is given each season to the goalkeeper who registers the most number of clean sheets in a season.

Lomachenko connected with a quick combination to Linares' head about 10 seconds before the second round ended. He wants to capture more titles - but it's not clear if he will go for more belts at 135 or return to 130.


Considering de Gea is among the best goalkeepers in the world, it's been a surprise to see him win the Golden Glove in his seventh season at Old Trafford.

"It is about clean sheets and they are about the team". Obviously we are all very happy for David and it is a great team achievement.' He added.

If you asked any Manchester United fan at the start of the season if they'd be happy with at the prospect of 81 points in the Premier League and a place in the FA Cup final, they probably would have snapped your hand off.

"It's always good to be able to help out the team and to try and be at your highest level of form possible to be able to earn points for the team".

De Gea's shut-out performance against West Ham ensured he can not be caught by Manchester City rival Ederson in the race for the Golden Glove.

"They have plenty more to give - and the right man [Jose Mourinho] to get the best out of them".
