“It’s very good to have the support of the fans, so I’m happy to win this award, I can hear the supporters during the games so I know they’re singing about me. I’m very grateful for that.”

De Gea revealed that his favourite save of the month came at the Bernabeu against Real Madrid.

“I think we’ve been very good in defence as a whole and have been keeping some clean sheets, I think my favourite save from the last month was definitely the one with my left hand against Real Madrid, when I pushed Fabio Coentrao’s shot against a post.”

I was sure about him up until a few months ago mainly because he was poor on crosses but he’s improved on that and he’s one of the best shot stoppers in the game at the moment so i hope the Madrid rumours aren’t true.
