The one record David de Gea holds over Edwin van der Sar at Man United

Manchester United shot-stopper David de Gea is arguably one of the best goalkeepers in the world.

The Spaniard, despite hitting a rough patch last season and the better part of the current campaign, is regarded among the best and has time and again proved the same. 

He has single-handedly won Man United matches and continues to break records at the club. 

During their win over rivals Manchester City, de Gea kept his 138th clean sheet, moving three clear of club legend Edwin van der Sar (135).

Only Gary Bailey (161), Alex Stepney (175) and Peter Schmeichel (180) have a better record, and at only 29, the former Atletico Madrid star seem to be on track to achieve the feat.

The Spaniard is also six appearances shy of becoming the 27th payer in the club's history to record 400 or more appearances, something he can easily achieve once action resumes.

De Gea is currently third on the list of goalkeepers with the most appearances for the club, behind Schmeichel's count (398) and Alex Stepney (539).
