Manchester United goalkeeper, David De Gea, has expressed happiness after saving a late penalty in Man United’s Premier League 2-1 win in opposition to West Ham United on Sunday.
De Gea was out of the blue thrown into the highlight within the last minute of the match on the London Stadium when the Hammers have been awarded a controversial late penalty.
Man United had solely simply taken the lead with Jesse Lingard’s sensible 89th-minute strike earlier than referee Martin Atkinson pointed to the spot following a handball from Luke Shaw after consulting the TV monitor.
De Gea ultimately saved Mark Noble’s penalty to offer Man United all three factors in opposition to the hosts.
“It was a bit loopy on the finish, a terrific objective of Jesse, a silly penalty, fortunate penalty for them on the finish of the sport,” De Gea advised MUTV.
“They made the change [Noble coming on as a sub], so it was a bit bit unusual. On the finish, I made the save, took the three factors, a large three factors for us, so I’m very, very completely satisfied.”
He added, “I noticed [Declan] Rice with the ball, so I used to be anticipating him to take the penalty.”
“Then I noticed Noble with the ball. It was the final minute of the sport [and] I made the save.
“[All I was thinking was] Simply save, save the ball, save the penalty, assist the group to win. It’s all the time tough to play right here in opposition to West Ham, so [we are] actually, actually completely satisfied.
