David de Gea Manchester UnitedSTAR MAN
David de Gea
Louis van Gaal has chopped and changed his team this season in order to find his best XI, but one position has remained a constant. David de Gea has not only secured his place as United’s No 1, but the Spain goalkeeper’s impressive performances have also led to him being dubbed one of the best stoppers in the world. Arsenal have been creating chances with ease this season but their biggest challenge on Sunday will be to beat De Gea.
