“It’s very good to have the support of the fans, so I’m happy to win this award,” De Gea told the official site. “I can hear the supporters during the games so I know they’re singing about me. I’m very grateful for that. I think we’ve been very good in defence as a whole and have been keeping some clean sheets. I think my favourite save from the last month was definitely the one with my left hand against Real Madrid, when I pushed Fabio Coentrao’s shot against a post.”
