Manchester United legend Dwight Yorke has hailed the performance of goalkeeper David de Gea, after the Red Devils drew 1-1 in the Champions League against Shakhtar Donetsk last night.

The Spanish 'keeper put in a fine performance as David Moyes' side picked up a valuable point in the Ukraine to take their tally to four points from their opening two group games.

And Yorke, who won the Champions League in United's treble winning season,  was extremely impressed with De Gea. 

Speaking about the performance of De Gea, Yorke told Sky Sports: "He was brilliant.

"He did everything that needed to be done. He commanded the area and made some smart saves."

Yorke went on to hail De Gea's all round development at United and has insisted that he will only continue to improve. 

He continued by saying: "Goalkeepers are so important. Sometimes you don't have a lot to do and he was tremendous all night. He came here as a young boy and he's really grown and is developing.

"He's gone on to be exceptional and is now a class act and he's only going to get better."

Next up for De Gea and United will be a trip to bottom of the table Sunderland, and the Red Devils will be desperate to get back to winning ways in the league.

Moyes' side have lost their last two in England's elite division after defeats against rivals Manchester City and West Brom.
