David De Gea has hit back at the critics who had labelled him a liability during his first seasons at the club, when the Spaniard was heavily criticised for failing to cut an assured figure in goal and being to prone to committing costly mistakes.
As United regained the Premier League title last season, however, De Gea emerged as a crucial figure in the squad, proving that despite being just 23-year-old, he can already be considered one of the best shot stoppers in the world and definitely one of the best in the Premier League.
Nemanja Vidic has been released from hospital after he was admitted on Sunday after colliding with David De Gea during their league game against Arsenal at Old Trafford. At first, the clash looked terrible because it was a head injury. Moreover, Vida looked dazed when he left the field in the 45th minure and did not re-emerge after the interval.
Robin van Persie opened the scoring for Manchester United in the Premier League match against Arsenal. The former Arsenal striker scored the opening goal of the game after heading the ball in to the net from a corner kick.
Van Persie scored the goal in the 26th minute to make it 1-0 to Manchester United at Old Trafford:
Here's Robin van Persie celebrating the goal:
Meanwhile, here's video of David De Gea coming into contact with Nemanja Vidic.
Adnan Januzaj has beaten his team-mates Wayne Rooney and David De Gea to ManUtd.com's monthly prize. He was crowned United's Player of the Month for October by fans on ManUtd.com, Twitter and the club's six foreign language websites. The 18-year-old faced a tough competition from September's winner Wayne Rooney (34%) and David De Gea (24%) but he eventually trumped them.
After a summer during which he seemed destined to leave Old Trafford, Wayne Rooney has enjoyed a remarkable turnaround of form, enjoying his best form of the last couple of years and proving pivotal to United's mini-revival that has seen them going unbeaten in their last seven games in all competitions.
David Moyes has refused to get carried away after United snatched victory from the jaws of the defeat in customary fashion against Stoke on Saturday afternoon to claim a crucial three points.
Dramatic and welcomed though it might have been, the win barely masquerade one of United's worst performance of the season, as the Reds looked incredibly pedestrian for the first 70 minutes and could have and perhaps should have been more than one goal down at halftime and had to thank David De Gea for keeping the scoreline acceptable.
Manchester United have been granted a brief reprieve with their 3-2 come-from-behind victory over Stoke City today. But for many supporters, the performance of the team for the majority of the match was extremely poor. If it weren't for the efforts of Wayne Rooney, Adnan Januzaj, David de Gea and Chicharito, the Red Devils would have been answering some serious questions following the match at Old Trafford.
Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea is set to sign a new deal at Old Trafford. The 22-year-old is already under contract until 2016, but the champions want to extend his stay and increase his pay to ward off the interest of Barcelona. The extension is likely to keep the Spaniard at the club until [.
Several Manchester United footballers attended a NBA game last night to relax while on their international break.
United players Adnan Januzaj, David de Gea, Rio Ferdinand, Darren Fletcher and former players Andy Cole and Quinton Fortune watched the game in the same arena as Patrick Vieira, Tom Huddlestone, Jake Livermore, Jack Rodwell, Curtis Davies, Fabrice Muamba and others.
A host of Manchester United's non-international players took in some basketball this evening. The champions' new hero Adnan Januzaj was courtside. Rio Ferdinand, Darren Fletcher, David De Gea and youth teamer Scott Johnstone were also among the crowd for the clash between Oklahoma City Thunder and Philadelphia 76ers at Manchester's Phones4U Arena Ferdinand said: "It's [.
Another great week of Premier League football is under our belt and with it came some great goals and saves.
Manchester United's David De Gea made a huge save to keep his side in striking distance of Sunderland while Arsenal's Wojciech Szczesny made a spectacular save to keep things at zero's at the Hawthorns.
Eric Steele, the former United goalkeeping coach, has revealed David De Gea's career at Old Trafford didn't get off to a flying start, due to the Spaniard's "lazy" attitude towards learning English and to his penchant for eating "too many tacos".
Steele is widely credited with being the figure who turned De Gea from a young, promising yet unreliable goalkeeper into one of the best shot-stopper in the world in the space of two years, after De Gea arrived from Atletico Madrid for £17.
David De Gea's first season in the Premier League was undermined by lifestyle issues and his reluctance to learn English, according to former Manchester United goalkeeping coach Eric Steele. The Spaniard was heavily criticised by the media and fans during an underwhelming start to his career at Old Trafford.
Manchester United manager David Moyes has named a strong starting eleven for today's Capital One Cup match against rivals Liverpool. Midfielder Shinji Kagawa has finally earned a domestic start under the Scot, with in-form Wayne Rooney once again leading the club's attack. Portuguese winger Nani is also set to make his first start since signing a new contract at Old Trafford, while Chris Smalling retains his place in the United back four.
Ahead of Sunday's first derby of the season at the Etihad, Michael Carrick and David De Gea have expressed their belief that Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie are on course to develop into a fearsome partnership.
Van Persie and Rooney were both on target against Crystal Palace on Saturday and they delivered again on Tuesday, as United put four past Bayer Leverkusen in their opening Champions League match of the season.
It's still early in the Premier League season, but we've already had a lot of good football, and even some bad football. While the samples are incredibly small, certain managers' tendencies for team selection are becoming noticeable, and some of them are real head-scratchers that leave fans (and perhaps players) wondering how certain players will be used at their club, if they even have a future.
David Moyes has named his first ever starting eleven for Manchester United in the Premier League, and there are very few surprises. Ryan Giggs wins a starting position over new arrival Wilfried Zaha, with Antonio Valencia getting the nod on the right flank.
As expected, wantaway striker Wayne Rooney has not been included in the starting eleven, with Robin van Persie and Danny Welbeck starting up front.
Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea has voiced his opinion about the rumors concerning Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas, admitting that the former Arsenal midfielder would improve the defending Premier League champions. De Gea failed to convince fellow Spaniard Thiago Alcantara to join the Red Devils earlier this summer, and has since seen the former Barca man head to Pep Guardiola's Bayern Munich side.
Manchester United lost their friendly against Japanese side Yokohama F. Marinos in a lively match. The 3-2 defeat was the second loss in David Moyes' first three games in charge. Yokohama took the lead after just 27 seconds when Marquinhos beat David De Gea at the second time of asking. United youngster Jesse Lingard equalised [.
As the summer heats up, a few English clubs will be sweating profusely as clubs like Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United and City anxiously await a few key signings - but will they come? As Thiago recently snubbed Manchester United to reconnect with Pep Guardiola at Bayern Munich, David Moyes and United have another reported interest in one of Wenger's men - Cesc Fabregas.
Young Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea has revealed his admiration for predecessors Edwin van der Sar and Peter Schmeichel, admitting that he hopes the fans hold him in the same regard one day. The Spaniard has been rapidly improving at Old Trafford, establishing himself as the undisputed number one at the club after out-battling Anders Lindegaard.
All eyes are on David Moyes and Manchester United at the moment and they will continue to be throughout this season. The Scotsman took over the reigns from Sir Alex Ferguson after Ferguson announced his retirement at the end of last season.
Moyes proved year after year at Everton that he was more than capable of managing in England's top flight.
United: David de Gea, Chris Smalling, Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidić (c), Patrice Evra, Nani, Michael Carrick, Anderson, Ashley Young, Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck. United substitutes: Anders Lindegaard, Phil Jones, Rafael, Jonny Evans, Park Ji-Sung, Tom Cleverley and Dimitar Berbatov.
City: Joe Hart, Micah Richards, Vincent Kompany (c), Joleon Lescott, Aleksandar Kolarov, Nigel de Jong, James Milner, Yaya Touré, David Silva, Mario Balotelli and Edin Džeko.
Lionel Messi could move to the Premier League if he gets "bored" of La Liga, Manchester City‘s Alvaro Negredo claims.
Just 26 years-old, Messi has been named the best player in the world four years in a row, is Barcelona's record goalscorer with 327 goals in just 394 games and has already won six Liga titles, two Copa del Reys medals and a hat-trick of UEFA Champions Leagues.
"He's got to look at the ball, follow the ball and he has to readjust and come back," said Peter Schmeichel. "This is for me one of the best saves I've ever seen in the Premier League. And it can prove to be one of the most important moments as well.
Representitives for both United and David de Gea met recently to offer the keeper a new improved contract after an alleged approach from Barcelona. After suffering a shaky start to life in the Premier League, de Gea has improved his performances to such an extent that many Reds placed him second in their list for [.
Following our 3-2 win against Stoke at the weekend, Javier Hernandez has hailed the performance of David de Gea, claiming that our keeper is the best in the world.
"He was wonderful," Hernandez told the official site. "Like I always say, we are a team and there are no heroes, but in some games there are players who make the difference and David was the one on Saturday.
Javier Hernandez brought a sense of stability back to Manchester United after a turbulent week by netting the only goal in an absorbing Capital One Cup tie with Liverpool. Hernandez wriggled away from Jose Enrique to touch home Wayne Rooney's corner. The Mexican's first goal of the campaign came so early in the second-half, United manager David Moyes had barely got beyond the penalty area in his walk to the home dug-out.
There was a lot of disappointment from United fans when they learnt that Eric Steele, our goalkeeping coach, had chosen to leave the staff. Having enjoyed so much success with David de Gea, helping him become the best keeper in the league last season, it made sense for him to continue working with the Spaniard.
Iker Muniain Athletic Bilbao's struggling star at an early crossroads is a post from: Just Football
There was a time in which he was hailed as the golden boy of Spanish football, but since then many names have passed him by.
Isco arose from the shadows of Valencia's 'B' team to make his way to the heights of Real Madrid, Thiago dazzled at Barcelona and outgrew his status as bit-part player there while a new batch of youngsters including Gerard Deulofeu will threaten to surpass him in a year or so.
A promising debut for an 18-year-old, an exquisite freekick from a player who had looked poised to join one of United's direct rivals throughout the summer and the first glimpse of the only significant signing to arrive in the transfer window would, normally, be enough reason to be cheerful.
Except that the 2-0 win matured against a newly-promoted side who spent the entire second half playing with 10 men after conceding a rather dubious penalty and that United barely looked to be playing with the handbrake on for large spells of the game.
