The Spain international currently boasts a ‘goals allowed minus post-shot expected goals’ score of +7.6.

This essentially means that he has stalled 7.6 expected goals so far this season.

He sits comfortably ahead of Wolves keeper Jose Sa in second place with a ‘PSxG+/-‘ score of +6.7.

Bochum’s Manuel Riemann closed the top three, with the German stopper scoring 6.4 goals for Bundesliga Mino.

De Gea has been at his best for the Red Devils after struggling in recent seasons.

The 31-year-old’s place was in jeopardy in the last stint as Dean Henderson challenged him for the No. 1 spot.

But the Spain international has made a comeback this year to cement his place as United’s first choice.

On Sunday he revealed how new boss Ralph Rangnick is harassing his teammates in training.

And a day later he made a sensational stop against Newcastle to save his side from a humiliating defeat.

The former Atletico Madrid player extended his palm on 88 minutes to prevent Magpie deputy Miguel Almiron from scoring all three points on a dull night for the visitors.
