Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel has hailed the performance of David de Gea after the Spaniard produced a number of fine saves in the Red Devils 2-1 victory over Everton earlier today.
De Gea kept out a Leighton Baines penalty at the end of the first-half, and secured all three points for the club with two outstanding saves in the dying minutes of the game.
And, as reported by the Daily Star, Schmeichel - who was renowned for his extraordinary saves between the sticks at the Theatre of Dreams - handed the club's current No.1 the ultimate praise.
Writing on Twitter, Schmeichel said: De Gea, heroic performance winning @ManUtd 2 points with 3 extraordinary saves. Great to see.
Manchester United fans will certainly be pleased with the win that took the club up to fourth place in the Premier League table. The win over the Toffees handed Louis van Gaal back-to-back wins as Red Devils boss for the first time.
Goals from Angel di Maria and Radamel Falcao were enough to secure all three points for United, but the day certainly belonged to De Gea in goal. United now have 15 days off before their next fixture against West Brom at the Hawthorns.
De Gea, meanwhile, will be hoping to star for Spain over the next week as his national side take on Slovakia and Luxembourg in the European Championship qualifiers.
