Iker Casillas praises David de Gea's performance

Manchester United had David de Gea to thank once again for yesterday’s 1-0 win against Norwich City.

The Spanish international made some crucial saves as United came under increased pressure at Carrow Road.

The 31-year-old’s performance was lauded by fans and his former United team mate Ander Herrera.

But Herrera isn’t the only Spanish international that has commented on de Gea’s display against Dean Smith’s side.

De Gea’s former Spanish national team mate Iker Casillas has hailed his performance after commenting on United’s number one’s Instagram post.

Receiving praise from the legendary World Cup winning Spaniard, who was capped 167 times for his country, will delight de Gea and it shows the incredible standards he is showing once again.

With back-to-back Premier League clean sheets to his name, the confidence and belief will continue to aid de Gea’s resurgence.

The Spaniard is well and truly back to the peak of his powers and with Raphael Varane nearing a return, de Gea will be targeting more clean sheets.

His shut out against the newly-promoted side was his 200th clean sheet during his career and with a favourable run of fixtures ahead for United, the Spanish international will already be setting his sights on the next landmark.

De Gea will be hoping his return to form will catch the eye of Spain boss Luis Enrique who continues to overlook the former Atletico Madrid man.

The former Barcelona manager currently prefers Athletic Bilbao stopper Unai Simon. De Gea hasn’t played for Spain for over a year and with next winter’s 2022 Qatar World Cup under a year away, de Gea will be hoping his club performances force Enrique’s hand.
