Andre Onana Onana is neck-to-neck with David Raya of Chelsea in the clean sheet race following his latest clean sheet in the 2-0 win against Everton this Saturday.

Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford’s both converted from the spot for United who are now within three points off Tottenham Hotspur in fifth position. Spurs have two games in hand.

Though it looked comfortable on paper, It was a busy afternoon at the other Onana made six saves to ensure the Red Devils bag maximum points in the game Everton gave their all but finished without returns.

It was a calm and assured display from him and he looks like he has finally turned a corner after such a difficult start to life at Old Trafford.

The clean sheet this afternoon was the eighth of this season for the former Inter Milan and Ajax Amsterdam stopper as he moved one shy of David Raya going into the final ten games of the season.

Onana promised more in his post-match interview to the media.

“I feel good, happy for the victory because it was an important game for us. Every match is like a final at the moment.”

“We had to be brave because we faced a really good opponent. Especially in the first half, when I was happy with the opening goal. We’re ready for the coming games.”

Speaking about his latest clean sheet the 27-year-old remarked, “That means we are good at defending. The defenders, midfielders, strikers are sacrificing for the team and that’s what we work for, so I’m very happy with these numbers.”

“There’s more to come, much more. It took me seven months to feel good in Manchester, so first of all, I’m very happy for the support of everybody because it was a tough time.”

Onana expressed hope that United can somehow manage a top-four finish and qualify for the Champions League.

“In the beginning, when I arrived here, I received a lot of support from the fans, my teammates and the club. Now I’m better and I’m very happy. You will see much more from me, trust me. Hopefully in the coming years, we’ll fight for big things.”
