Premiership 2011-2012 Goalkeeper Awards – Double Award: David De Gea

Not 1 but 2 Awards this time for just one Goalkeeper… And if we look back to last year this Goalkeeper was being written off by sections of the press. It just goes to show that you shouldn’t believe all you read in the tabloids. So a big congratulations to Manchester United’s David De Gea for:

  • Best Clean Sheets to Games Ratio; and
  • Meanest Keeper = Number of Goals Conceded to Shots on Goal.
