David de Gea named in BBC Team of the Week after 1-1 draw vs Chelsea

David de Gea has been named in the latest BBC Team of the Week after his outing against Chelsea.

Manchester United’s draw against Chelsea was a decent result all things considered. I’ll be honest, I feared the worst ahead of time and thought another spanking was on the cards.

Credit to Michael Carrick and his players, who have stepped up over the last two games and fought hard for one another. The interim boss still isn’t fully in place, though it does look like we’re a matter of ours away from Ralf Rangnick’s appointment.

Perhaps with the appointment of the German looming, our players put that extra bit of effort in, trying to make a good first impression. On the whole, it was a real team performance from our lads – though there was only place in the latest BBC Team of the Week for one Red Devil; David de Gea.

Now I’m not sure how Antonio Rudiger earned his way in this side over Eric Bailly, particularly after the German’s howler of a miss late on, but there we go.

Anyway, back to David de Gea, who is in sublime form at this moment in time. Last season I felt like time was running out for the ex-Atletico Madrid man, but credit where it’s due, he’s proved me wrong in a major way.

We’d be lost without him this season and some of the saves he has made are truly world-class. Yesterday was more of the same. He’d tip one onto the bar from Rudiger in the first 45, while also making a top stop with his feet in the early-going of this one.

When the players know they have a brick wall like De Gea behind them in goal, it gives everyone a confidence-booster. I’m just delighted for the man himself. Nobody deserves it more than he does – and he’s responded to the pressure from Dean Henderson very well.

Congratulations, Dave!
