Ferguson credits De Gea in key victory

Published Add your comment

Sir Alex Ferguson thanked goalkeeper David de Gea for making the saves in a 2-0 victory at Blackburn that allowed Manchester United to move five points clear in the Premier League title race.

Although United dominated possession at Ewood Park, De Gea had to deny Junior Hoilett, Marcus Olsson and Grant Hanley before the break, then repelled Morten Gamst Pedersen. The Red Devils eventually wrapped up victory thanks to goals from Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young in the final 10 minutes.

"David de Gea made three fantastic saves to keep us in the game," said Ferguson.
