The performance was so sensational, that social media has erupted in common praise for the Spanish International, and #DavesSaves has become somewhat of a trend on Twitter.

"Today, to talk about the game, of course we were better".

After a bright Spurs opening, United looked a threat on the break and went close twice before the 20th minute - Jesse Lingard firing wide of the top-right corner from 12 yards, before Anthony Martial tested Lloris from a tight angle.

- David de Gea made 11 saves in this match for Man Utd - only against Arsenal in December 2017 has he ever made more in a Premier League match (14).

What does it mean?

The England captain appeared to roll his ankle under heavy pressure from Manchester United defender's Phil Jones and Victor Lindelof in the dying stages of today's game, and speaking afterwards, Mauricio Pochettino admitted that he is anxious for the fitness of the England captain. For Spurs, however, it was another blow to their title hopes.

Marcus Rashford's first-half goal proved enough for United to take all three points back to Manchester. That may be the case, yet his commanding aura surely had something to do with the Spurs attackers failing to find the mark.

While England star Kane was hardly awful, in a game of this magnitude Spurs and Pochettino would have expected him to be reliable in front of goal, yet De Gea came out on top in their duel.

Manchester United's improvement since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho as manager last month has been nothing short of remarkable.

Some journalists said it was the best goalkeeping performance they'd ever seen in the flesh while Matt Law from the Telegraph gave the United star a rare 10/10 for his display.

Here are some of the most eye-opening stats and facts to come out of a huge Premier League game. Maybe one or two of them were uncatchable, but the saves he makes are because he is so in tune with the game. The 25-year-old has contributed four goals and four assists, an involvement in 53 per cent of United's goals since Solskjaer took charge.
