The award was introduced in 2004/05 and De Gea is just the second United keeper to win it after Edwin Van Der Sar won it in 2008/09.

Manchester City's Ederson was on 16 clean sheets - one behind De Gea - ahead of being sidelined against Huddersfield Town last weekend, giving the Spaniard a chance to secure the award against the Clarets.

It is not a game which will live long in the memory of anyone except De Gea, who has reached 18 clean sheets with a game to spare and will therefore receive the "Golden Glove" award at the fifth time of trying since joining Man United. The shot-stopper was also named in the PFA Team of the Year. "I am really happy for that". It means we defended well in this league, I am happy for me and happy for the team.

"It is for everyone, it is a team award, not just for the goalkeeper".

"David has been terrific", added Jose Mourinho. 'But the Golden Glove is about the team and not about somebody analysing the goalkeeper, and deciding this is the best goalkeeper of the Premier League.

"It is about clean sheets and they are about the team". Obviously, we are all very happy for David and it is a great team achievement'.
