David De Gea Spain

Danny Higginbotham is full of praise for Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea.

Danny Higginbotham has been singing the praises of Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea.

Spain international De Gea has been in superb form so far this season, making saves after saves in the Premier League.

The latest great performance of the 24-year-old came against Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday. Despite the Red Devils winning the Premier League encounter 3-0, it was De Gea who was handed the ‘Man of the Match’ award.

During the ‘Monday Night Football’ show on Sky Sports, United legend Gary Neville went into details where and how De Gea has improved over the last two years.

Former United defender Higginbotham also had his say on the Spaniard’s quality, taking to social networking site Twitter to do so.

De Gea is one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League and has probably been United’s best player so far this season.

Earmarked for success from an early age, the Spaniard did not have the best of times in his debut season in the Premier League, but since the start of the 2012-13 campaign, he has been superb.
