Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea has been proved as the Premier League's BEST.

United’s stopper is the top ranked keeper in the Player Performance Index, having had to make more saves than any one in the division (29), including nine in each of the Spurs and Bolton games.

Manchester City’s Joe Hart has only had to make half as many (15) while Chelsea duo Petr Cech and Hilario have had 19 to make between them. Stats also show in Chelsea’s last game the starting outfield players averaged a speed of 5.47 mph across the game, while opponents Sunderland’s 10 starting outfielders averaged 5.86 mph, not an unusual discrepancy for the team chasing the game to have higher speeds.

Dominant United’s average speed against Bolton was just 4.8 mph.
