Player was going for the ball so he stayed to make the save. Just got unlucky that it hit the post and come back

Think he misjudged it thought it was going wide and got caught out as Vardy was so alert and gambled not at fault but he will be disappointed that he didn’t beat Vardy to the rebound. I don’t think he expected Vardy to follow it in.

Had a dodgy kick at one point but made a few sharp saves hopefully World Cup is out of his mind now

Yeah think he thought it was going wide. Poor goal to concede but a bit of a freak one too. After a poor World Cup, he was back on form here.

Is his downturn in form being overtalked about? Just looking at the World Cup and his goals conceded we’re 2 pens, that Ronaldo free kick. An unsavable header from a free kick. A defensive mistake leaving a player through one on one and that Ronaldo free kick.

Looking at the prem. De Gea is 4th in the league for saves made. He isn’t at the top of his game but because it’s him we judge him harsher.

Keeper stats are a hard thing to judge because there are saves you can make and saves you can't make there's no real expected saves stat for keepers. Haha!

I think the world cup has knocked him he's not super dave like he was last season he's now looking human again but I do think the World Cup knocked him a bit because he made a mistake and a few others in the build up and he took a lot of the backlash in the press over there plus he's lost his chance of going back to Madrid.

The thing that to me has been noticeably worse this season is his kicking seems to have dipped in quality but I think that's something that has declined over a few years

He had no right saving that. And the fact he did probably saved our champions league campaign.

The save was pretty unreal. Best goalkeeper in the world bar none. Reminded me a little bit of the Schmeichel save vs Rapid Vienna (think it was then) many years ago, mainly in the fact he had no right to save it.
