It looked to me like he got his angles wrong today and pulled back from making the save.

Absolutely massive save from him at 1-1 after poor passing from our defenders let Armstrong in one on one.

Yep big save at a key moment wasn't a spectacular save think most keepers get that the striker hit it hard but he didn't get it anywhere near the corner.

Certainly spared Maguire a few blushes he was caught on the ball but the passing before it got to him was so slow and he had absolutely no one to give the ball to when he received it.

Delighted for him had a tough few years but seems to be getting back near his best again which is great news for everyone.

Given all the grief he gets about penalties it’s great to see him save one

First penalty save since 2014, so said the commentator.

In the league saved on in the FA Cup semi final in 2016.

Saved one on the opening day last season but had to be retaken as he just moved off his line

Love this. It's been a long time coming he's made a few point saving saves this season and that one is the biggest you can get.

You'd have to say at this point he's probably back to being the #1. I don't necessarily think that's good long term but for this year he's earned that.

Fantastic kept us in the game.

I really had my doubts about him getting his form back after such a long run of bad form but he's done it and it's great to see him back at his best because last night he needed to be.

The fear of losing your spot can really motivate some people.

Then there's Martial

Maybe that was it but they've also got a new goalkeeping coach in recently so maybe that's helped freshen things up for him just looked like all his confidence went.

Could even be the fact he was a sub during the euro's as Spain came back to life on the international stage he maybe just enjoyed being in that camp with the pressure off as he wasn't the number 1.

World Cup in 18 months and if he's playing like this he'll fancy his chances of getting his spot back.

DGD in form = rest of united crap
DGD out of form = rest of united good

If only we could marry the two

Whatever happened, it really looks like he's got the fire back. You never know what's happening in somebody's personal life, but Mitten was saying he rang Ole and asked to come back early for preseason, so something changed for the good over the summer. Long may this continue.
