David De Gea has spoken of the passion and commitment of the Manchester United fans in recent weeks despite results not falling The Red Devils way.
The Spanish goalkeeper looks much more settled between the sticks this season after a tricky maiden campaign adapting to the Premier League.
Speaking to MUTV, De Gea said, "To play on a pitch like that with the stands full and everyone behind you is magnificent. It's a dream.
"It's impossible to put into words. You have to live that kind of feeling rather than describe it. It's so special"
It can be hard to believe that with all his experience De Gea is just 23-years-old and looks set to be Manchester United's number one goalkeeper for the foreseeable future at least.
De Gea has added a much more physical presence to his game too this year so as not to be bullied off the ball when attempting to claim a set piece which has significantly helped the team's defence.
The Manchester United number one spoke about the responsibility of being a role model for other aspiring youngsters too adding: "It's important to always do the right thing so that anyone who does look up to you would be proud of how you carry yourself."
A crucial home tie against Swansea, who recently dumped Manchester United out of the FA Cup third round with a late Wilfred Bony winner is next up for David Moyes' boys, and a win to catch those above them looks vital.
