David de Gea reacts to his Man of the Match performance

David de Gea has had somewhat of a shaky start to this season, but today he silenced any critics with an absolutely sublime performance in between the sticks. Our super Spaniard more than saved us on many occasions today, including an excellent penalty save to keep Manchester United in front going into half-time.

It was just one of those games from the 23-year old. Absolutely nothing was going to get past him today, and with an inexperienced back four ahead of him, he really did lead from the back.

The performance couldn’t have come at a better time for De Gea, as we hard into the international break he’ll give his national manager something to think about – and maybe he might just grab a hold of that #1 Spanish jersey.
