De Gea kept a clean sheet in Manchester United's 3-0 win against Stoke City at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

A quiet night for de Gea as Man. Utd. were comfortable winners against Stoke. Arguably one of the best keepers in the world, de Gea has notched up 9 clean sheets this season (only Hart and Cech-11-have more) but in some fantasy formats where saves are rewarded-11 goalkeepers have made ore- perhaps there are better options out there.

De Gea made one save and conceded once in Saturday's 1-0 defeat to Southampton.

Both keepers had quiet gamesm as neither team looked interested in pushing forward. United controlled the possession, but Southampton managed more shots on target (two) than United. De Gea was unlucky to have seen Charlie Austin seen through and then push it past him. He has eight clean sheets in 19 Premier League matches. United will take on Stoke City after an FA Cup tie against Derby County next weekend.

De Gea made four saves while keeping a clean sheet in Sunday's 1-0 victory over Liverpool.

In a match that was thoroughly dominated by Liverpool, peppering twice as many shots in the direction of de Gea as United took while putting four on target, it was on de Gea to preserve at first a point and then the full three. His work against Emre Can was particularly impressive, making not one but two world class saves against the German. This was his first Premier League clean sheet of 2016 and his eighth of the season.

De Gea made three saves while conceding three goals in Tuesday's 3-3 draw with Newcastle United.

De Gea was strong in the first half, saving a point-blank opportunity from Georginio Wijnaldum before eventually conceding minutes before the halftime whistle to the Dutchman. The second half saw Chris Smalling concede a penalty, which was converted, and a Paul Dummett rocket careen off Smalling's shoulder into the top corner of the goal. While the final tally was one de Gea would love to forget, he still managed to play well throughout, though the leaky United backline could continue to spell trouble for the Spanish keeper.

De Gea made three saves and kept a clean sheet in Monday's scoreless draw against Chelsea.

De Gea made his best save of the match on a John Terry header in the opening five minutes and then saw a rather comfortable day from there. This was his eighth clean sheet of the season, but United's startling inability to put the ball in the back of the net has cost them numerous points as they've dropped out of the Champions League places.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

De Gea only made one save and conceded twice in another extremely disappointing 2-0 loss to Stoke on Boxing Day.

In addition to the inept offense, United have been very porous in defense as of late too conceding at least two goals in the last four games across all competitions on the way to losing all of them resulting in a seven games (five in EPL) winless streak for the Red Devils. De Gea, himself, has also been very hesitant in that period only making a total of six saves along with the six conceded goals in the last three games. You may want to try to avoid him again on Monday facing a rejuvenated Chelsea team.

De Gea made two saves, one claim and conceded twice in a huge 2-1 home upset loss to Norwich on Saturday.

The Canaries were very quick and dangerous on the counter attacks and the Spaniard made a couple of good saves, however, he should’ve reacted better when Cameron Jerome scored the first goal. It wasn’t the best of shots and it went through the hands of de Gea. United are on a four-game winless streak, but they'll look to right the ship next week against Stoke.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

De Gea made three saves and conceded twice in the 2-1 major upset loss to Bournemouth on Saturday.

The Spaniard misjudged awfully a corner cross from Junior Stanislas and could only watch helplessly the ball fly in the far corner of his goal right off the start of the game. The newly rebuilt and very inexperienced United’s defense was also off the whole game and it could’ve turned into a disastrous outing for the keeper if it wasn’t for a few good saves and few unfortunate misses. De Gea will have a golden opportunity to bounce back next Saturday at home to struggling Norwich.
