Jacob Ramsey scored against Liverpool at Anfield, and as a result, Allison conceded a goal. This outcome ensures that De Gea will be the sole recipient of the accolade for this season, with no other goalkeeper sharing the Golden Glove award with him.

De Gea has now won the Golden Glove award for the second time, having previously won it in the 2017/18 season when he kept 18 clean sheets.

Despite achieving this feat, De Gea has faced a barrage of criticism from both the media and a portion of the fanbase. His performances have been marred by mistakes, and his perceived weaknesses have been viewed as inhibiting the style of play that Ten Hag aims to integrate into the team.

Manchester United fans and some pundits have called for De Gea’s replacement. The club has been linked with several goalkeeper prospects, including David Raya, Jordan Pickford, Gregor Kobel, and Diogo Costa.
