QUIZ: Name every victor of the Premier League Golden Glove award

Manchester United’s Goal Keeper David De Gea Wins His First Golden Glove

He also became the first Manchester United goalkeeper to win the award since the 2008/09 season, where Dutch legend Edwin van der Sar won it after keeping 21 clean sheets.

And a third blank in their last five league games for United means champions Manchester City can seal another record by winning the league by at least 19 points if they win at Southampton tomorrow.

"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.

The Spanish No 1 has enjoyed another spectacular individual season but Jose Mourinho's team as a whole have come in for constant criticism this term.

While United fell over the line in securing second place with a stalemate against West Ham on Thursday, there was reason for De Gea to celebrate. But the Golden Glove is about the team and not about somebody analyzing the goalkeeper, and deciding this is the best goalkeeper of the Premier League.

"It is about clean sheets and they are about the team".

Since Sir Alex Ferguson retired, United has been very up and down, and on occasion, turned in some very awful single game performances.

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. "Obviously, we are all very happy for David and it is a great team achievement".

"If United beat Chelsea next Saturday - and I really wouldn't be tempted to bet against them - that will be three trophies in the space of 16 months".

"We are the second-best team in the Premier League, a fantastic competition with lots of good teams, with six teams trying to finish first", said the Portuguese.

'It is for everyone, it is a team award, not just for the goalkeeper.

"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".
