Kriralok Desk: Manchester City has won the English Premier League title this season. But their city rival Manchester United’s goalkeeper David de Gea won the best goalkeeper award ‘Golden Gloves’ with two matches in hand. The 32-year-old Spanish star won this award for the second time.
So far this season, De Gea has kept a clean sheet in a maximum of 16 matches. Second-placed Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Baker has kept a clean sheet in 14 matches. And Newcastle United’s Nick Pope and Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsdell has kept a clean sheet in 13 matches each.
Manchester United beat Bournemouth 1-0 at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday (May 20). In the other match of the day, Liverpool drew 1-1 against Aston Villa. Liverpool have one more match left in the tournament. So De Gea won the award as Alisson could no longer touch De Gea.
Earlier, in the 2017-18 season, De Gea won the best goalkeeper award in the EPL for the first time, beating Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and Tottenham’s Hugo Lloris. This time he won this title for the second time.
It should be noted that this time Manchester United is trying to finish the league from the top four in the league. They are fourth in the table with 69 points from 36 matches so far. If they get at least 1 point from the remaining two matches, Erik Ten Haag’s team will be guaranteed a top four finish. Only then will the Red Devils be able to play in the Champions League next season.
