David de Gea is hoping his stunning last-gasp save at Chelsea in February will turn out to be the defining moment of Manchester United's season.

Prior to that game at Stamford Bridge, there had been genuine debate as to whether De Gea should even be selected.

"When you look back over a season there are lots of defining moments and key goals," he said. "But, I suppose, from a team point of view, and particularly from a personal point of view, the fact the save was right in the last minute was decisive. It gave me a huge confidence boost as well and that was important."
