When Jose Mourinho was sacked from Manchester United last month, the club were 11 points adrift of the Champions League places.

However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has now won six league games in a row and the club are now just three points off fourth.

It’s been a remarkable turnaround at Old Trafford.

Of course, many of those victories have come against opponents they are expected to be beating.

However, it was the win against Tottenham at Wembley that impressed football fans.

Solskjaer’s tactics exploited Spurs’ attacking full-backs, allowing Marcus Rashford to score the only goal of the game.

But it took an incredible performance from David de Gea to preserve United’s 1-0 win.

Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester United - Premier League

The Spanish goalkeeper made 11 saves during the 90 minutes - many with his feet - as he denied the likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Toby Alderweireld.

During the game, Sky Sports commentator Martin Tyler suggested that De Gea should frame his boots from the game due to the numerous saves he made with them.

And the United has taken his advice.

On Tuesday, De Gea posted a picture of his boots in a frame and tweeted Sky Sports saying: “Thanks for the framing idea, Martin! Was that the most saves made with feet in a game? @SkySportsPL #TylersTeasers.”

OptaJoe soon answered De Gea's question and claimed "No goalkeeper has made more saves with their feet in a Premier League game since 2008-09 & the last to make four was Wayne Hennessey for C.Palace vs Chelsea in April 2017"

It may not have been a new record but United fans were loving the fact De Gea chose to remember his incredible performance by framing his boots.

Check out the reaction on Twitter:

United will just hope De Gea can emulate that form he showed at Wembley to help his side qualify for next season’s Champions League and continue their run in the FA Cup and the Champions League.
