The Manchester United keeper has not been beaten in the 942 minutes since Arsenal's Samir Nasri scored the second of his two goals on 8 November.
Chelsea's Petr Cech holds the current record at 1,025 minutes, which he took from United's Peter Schmeichel in 2005, but that is still short of Steve De'Ath's Football League best of 1,103 minutes for Reading and the British record for all competitive games, held by Chris Woods of Rangers, who once went unbeaten for 1,196 minutes (19 hours and 56 minutes).
I can see the record tumbling despite United having a depleted defence. This in itself would be an amazing record as United are not famous for feats such as this. As with all Manchester United teams they rely on free-flowing attacking football with the old Busby philosophy ALWAYS in force.........if we concede one goal, we will score two !!!
Good luck to Van Der Sar and United on Tuesday, go get that record guys !! ..... Back To Home Page...
