Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has described David De Gea as the best goalkeeper in the world following his heroics against Villarreal on Wednesday night.
While United struggled to break the Spanish outfit, it was De Gea who kept them in the game with some superb save as the hosts clinched a 2-1 win in stoppage time.
"Thankfully we had the best goalkeeper in the world tonight. David was fantastic. Second-half, they had more of the ball, it was open and they deserved to lead.
"Old Trafford is magic. Champions League at Old Trafford... sometimes that history can help us and tonight Cristiano came up with a good goal and Alex [Telles] came up with a fantastic goal.
"[De Gea] had a difficult summer. He went to the Euros and didn't play there, but he's really come back with a determination, a work rate, that I enjoy. Again, he got a deserved outcome.
"He saved us tonight. We have to be realistic and say that we've got two good keepers in Tom [Heaton] and Dean [Henderson], but today David deserves Man of the Match," Solskjaer said.
