Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea tweeted Petr Cech during Arsenal’s 0-0 draw with Liverpool on Monday night, applauding the Gunners’ No. 1 for his superb individual display at the Emirates Stadium.

Cech, 33, made amends for his disappointing Premier League debut for Arsenal by producing several world-class saves to keep his side’s clean sheet intact against Liverpool.

The Czech Republic international made a point-blank save from Christian Benteke and produced another finger-tipped stop to deny Philippe Coutinho in the first half, before earning himself the Man of the Match award at the end of a pulsating goalless draw.
