The 23-year-old stunned David De Gea on Thursday night with the fact that he isn’t even the first choice goalkeeper as he only was called up to replace the Cypriot’s number 1, Fabio and he ended up pull off a great show.
Making 12 sensational blocks to keep Manchester United at bay until Scott McTominay finally scored in the last minutes with the 34th shot of the night for United.

“Of course. I think he [Uzoho] had an amazing game,” David De Gea said to MUTV.
“I think he made eight or 10 great saves for his team in the game but in the end we scored a goal and for sure he made a great game.
“I know he played in La Liga in Spain. He had an amazing game and congratulations for him.”
