He may have ended up on the losing side this evening but Fraser Forster had the game of his life against Arsenal this evening, as he kept the Gunners out on numerous occasions and his contribution didn’t go unnoticed.
Forster denied Arsenal numerous times, with the pick of the bunch being a tremendous diving claw to keep Olivier Giroud’s looping header from finding the back of the net. Having won the BT Sport Man of The Match award, Forster was also praised by fans of all backgrounds on social media who stated he was better than some of the leagues more favoured stoppers- and Ben Foster.
If he can keep up these performances then Joe Hart has a real struggle to keep hold of the England number one jersey. Can Southampton achieve a top four finish? If so, Forster will be a big part of it!
His subs don’t always get praise but nice one AW both awesome. Some save from Girouds header. Hats of to Forster. Deserved MOtM for Saints.

What Forster did today will never get as many accolades as De Gea even tho the former was times better.

Fraser Forster just had the kind of performance that Man Utd fans think De Gea has every game
