Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea secured Premier League golden glove with two games remaining. The Spanish man has kept 16 clean sheets so far this season, conceding only 41 goals.
Liverpool’s Brazillian goal keeper Allison is second with 14 clean sheets, but it became impossible for him to catch De Gea when he conceded against Aston Villa.
Despite winning the Golden Glove, de Gea’s United have suffered heavy defeats to Liverpool, Manchester City and Brentford, with a goal difference of 11.
Newcastle’s Nick Pope and Arsenal star Aaron Ramsdale, both on 13 clean sheets, are also unable to catch De Gea, who has been named the outright winner.
De Gea, 32, has come under repeated criticism this season, most recently for his error to allow West Ham to score in their win over United this month, but has been able to keep his team from conceding in almost half of their league games.
“Football is a game of mistakes and, of course, it was a really bad moment [against West Ham],” Ten Hag commented following the Bournemouth game.
