David de Gea Saves Romelu Lukaku Own Goal (Video), Twitter Users Have Fun


Manchester United headed to the locker room leading Arsenal 2-0, but the Gunners dominated in possession and chances. The Gunners finished the first half up 71%-29% in possession with 14 shots to United’s five. The home side has put seven of those shots on goal while United have just those two.

The difference was obviously David de Gea, who has looked like the world’s best goalkeeper thus far tonight. It’s certainly been a #DaveSaves kind of night, and those saves included one preventing teammate Romelu Lukaku from scoring an own goal.

The United #1 was absolutely brilliant in the first half, with seven saves, but this play on Lukaku is the one that has social media buzzing.

The first half ended in an insane flurry of scoring chances for Arsenal, providing the case that this match might be the game of the year.

It has certainly been a #DaveSaves day on Twitter, which is quite common, but this time there’s another angle this time- the Romelu Lukaku scoring drought, which many social media users are having a whole lot of fun with.

Here’s just a small sample of some of the more entertaining and poignant reactions that we saw on the micro-blogging platform to De Gea saving Lukaku.
