Manchester United fans were absolutely delighted by David de Gea‘s performance in the Champions League match vs Sevilla.
Jose Mourinho’s men travelled to Spain in the hopes of stealing an away goal or two in order to go back home to Old Trafford with a strong result for the second leg.
United aren’t expected to go too far in Europe’s elite competition but are expected to get past the La Liga side into the quarter finals.
The away team were lucky to head into half time with a 0-0 result given the incredible chance Sevilla had that was only kept out by an incredible De Gea save.
The Red Devils will certainly need David in the form of his life for the second leg in order to ensure their opposition don’t grab any away goals themselves.
Imagine thinking De Gea isn't the best keeper in the world. pic.twitter.com/ykkIq9zNMv

At what point do we stop being surprised by De Gea's reflexes?
A spectacular goalkeeper, who hasn't played on this stage anywhere near enough

Will be very hard for Neuer to reclaim the “Best keeper in the world-throne”.
De Gea got the belt.

Schmeichel won more but I believe DeGea has overtaken him. We are seeing the same level of performance from the Spaniard as Ronaldo put in from two years before his departure.

Romelu Lukaku should’ve scored his own incredible opportunity in the first half as well that possibly could’ve given Manchester United a very decent lead before the break.
Unfortunately the Belgian was not his usual clinical self and he had David de Gea to thank for keeping the scores level.
United fans will certainly continue to pray to the footballing gods to keep a hold of their favourite Spaniard amid Real Madrid interest.
De Gea has been linked with the Spanish capital club for several seasons now and while it appears as though he’s happy at his current club, supporters are worried they won’t be able to hold onto him forever.
