Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has tipped Memphis Depay to get back to his best ahead of the Red Devils' Champions League showdown against PSV tomorrow evening.
As reported by the club's official site, De Gea has insisted that his teammate will be 'really up for playing against his old club' as United go in search of securing their place in the Round of 16 of the competition.
Often failing to secure a place in Louis van Gaal's starting XI, Depay has endured a tricky couple of months on English soil, but the dynamic forward found the back of the net as United secured a victory against Watford this past weekend.

In fact, without the duo of Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney, the Dutchman started the game in attack and made an important impact throughout proceedings.
De Gea, who was also in outstanding form at Vicarage Road, certainly believes that fans of the Red Devils will see the best of the 21-year-old sooner rather than later.
When asked about Depay, De Gea stated: "He has had a tough few weeks and I’m sure he’ll soon be back at the top of his game.
"He’s going to bring a lot to the team and I’m sure he’ll be really up for playing against his old club."
After finding some form on Saturday, there's no reason why Depay won't go from strength-to-strength at Old Trafford over the coming months. Versatile, direct and powerful, the Dutchman has the attributes to prove his credentials for the Red Devils.
In truth, Depay's best form this season has come in Europe's elite competition, so the electric ace may well prove a key man for Van Gaal's side once again tomorrow. Depay still has a great deal to learn, of course, but he will surely believe that he can become a consistent star for United.
