Watching a re-run of the draw at Anfield, it was noticeable just how good David De Gea was.

Our young Spanish keeper produced some great saves and was largely responsible for us getting a point at a ground where I anticipate very few other clubs will.

The praise that has since come his way; is in stark contrast to the criticism his early season mistakes deserved.

Rio Ferdinand, himself back in first team action, reckons the change happened at the most physical of places, the Britannia Stadium, with Rio remarking to the red-top tabloids,

“David has gone from strength to strength and the game against Stoke was a pivotal moment.”

“There was a lot of pressure on him because of the size of the opponents and how Stoke put pressure on the goalkeeper.”

“But he dealt with that brilliantly and I think that was huge for him confidence wise. He has just got better and better from there.”


Another to sing his praise is the goal-scoring hero from Saturday lunchtime, Javier Hernandez, with the Mexican adding,

“David is an unbelievable player. He is working day by day and the good thing is that he wants to work.”

“He knows that to play in this shirt, first of all, you need to enjoy it. But he also he is aware that it is a big responsibility.”

“He is handling it very well. He is only 20. He could play for 20 more years.”


He perhaps could, but as we all know there are a lot of factors when it comes to continuing or even prolonging a career in a United shirt, but for the moment, everything looks rosy for David.
