Cape Town - Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea's heroics against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday left his team-mates stunned as fans hailed the Spanish shot-stopper as the world's best.

Marcus Rashford scored the only goal shortly before half-time but credit for the win belonged primarily to De Gea whose 11 saves were the most he had made in a top-flight match without conceding a goal.

"We won the game against a top team, we controlled the first half but in the second half they had chances," De Gea told Sky Sports.

"The manager brought some happiness, the players are playing well and the team is very strong now.

"This is the real Manchester United."

The Spaniard's heroics left many stunned as fans as well as his team-mates reacted to his match-winning performance.
