Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea took on teammate Anderson in a skills challenge - and beat him!

The Spain under-21 keeper is reportedly handy on the pitch, and he showed off his passing skills with an impressive display in this corner kick challenge.

De Gea gets 30 seconds to curl the ball into three different goals - the near one scores 10 points, the middle one 25 points and the far one 75 points.

United midfielder Anderson scored just 60 in half a minute from the corner, and his Spanish teammate looked pretty confident of success.

Just before he started the challenge, De Gea said: "Anderson, I dedicate this to you."

And the United shot-stopper started on fire. He made it look easy, racing to 50 points within the first 10 seconds.

A few dud efforts halted his progress, but a late flurry saw him chalk up a respectable tally of 85 points - 35 more than his United midfield colleague.

Anderson hasn't exactly knocked anybody's socks off at Old Trafford, struggling to make the most of limited opportunities under David Moyes. He's primarily been restricted to Capital One Cup appearances, and substitute outings.

This will not help his cause.
