Following the heroics of De Gea, the United boss was delighted with the Spaniard when conducting his post-match interview with MUTV.
“You know he’s a top keeper, everyone loves having him behind them,” the boss emphasised.
“He’s come back focused, really determined, with a desire to show who he is. It’s his 11th season and we’ve never stopped believing in him, and it’s important that he also knows that.
“He came in pre-season and said: ‘I know I’m supposed to be rested but I want to come back early’ and that just shows his determination.”
