Manchester United fans, when the summer comes club together and buy a prison and lock David de Gea inside it. When September comes you can let him out.

Want to know why? Because he's clearly your best player. By some distance.

The Spaniard, who was within minutes of moving to Real Madrid last summer only for the move to collapse, has been in incredible form and saved his team again tonight.

During Manchester United's Europa League clash against Liverpool, which the Red Devils were trailing 2-0 from the first leg, Liverpool ace Philippe Coutinho wriggled free and fired a shot on goal.

It seemed destined that he would score, only for De Gea to demonstrate his athleticism by getting down quickly to palm it away. It certainly was an impressive save and you can check it below. 

The moment turned out to be key as, moments later, Manchester United went up the other end and scored the goal that blows the tie wide open.

De Gea save

Sturridge hits the bar

Anthony Martial was the man who got the goal from penalty spot, after Liverpool defender Nathaniel Clyne bought him down in the area.

Liverpool looked to respond afterwards, but Daniel Sturridge could only watch on as his shot cannoned off the bar.

Who do you think will go through to the next round?
