De Gea has sent Manchester United fans into meltdown with his post-match words!

The Spaniard produced a Premier League display for the ages to deny Spurs at Wembley

David De Gea feels that the real Manchester Untied are back after his side’s hard-fought 1-0 victory at Spurs on Sunday. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men produced a superb first-half performance, taking the lead through Marcus Rashford after Paul Pogba put his teammate through on goal with a raking ball that 21-year-old did not need two invitations to finish.

Spurs dominated the second half, looking to somehow find an equaliser, but United held on — and that was largely thanks to De Gea. The Spaniard produced an all-time best Premier League goalkeeping display to thwart the likes of Harry Kane, Toby Alderweireld and Dele Alli. But rather than speak about himself post full-time, the former Atletico Madrid player was full of praise for the team. “We won the game against a top team, we controlled the first half but in the second half they had chances,” he told Sky Sports.

“I was feeling very well with the first two saves, it was a great game. I don’t even remember some of the saves so I can’t pick a best. The manager brought some happiness, the players are playing well and the team is very strong now. This is the real Manchester United .”

The last words obviously sent fans into meltdown, with one tweeting: “De Gea: ‘This is the real Man Utd’ Love that. Very fortunate second half but I would anticipate the over-excitement from MUFC fans will be because they have their team back.”

There were many more such fans tweeting away about their excitement over those words, with many even asking United to pay whatever it takes to keep the shot-stopper at the club.

Author’s take

Anyone who saw what De Gea did there will surely acknowledge why he is considered the best in the world, though that title had been under cloud after an uncharacteristically bad World Cup and a disappointing start to the season, But things seem to be falling into place under Solksjaer, and that can only be good news for team looking to finish in the top four come season end.
