Reds rave over Dave

"I was in the wall for the free-kick and as I turned and watched the ball go over my head, I thought: 'This has a chance of going in.' David has produced a world-class save at a crucial time. It got us the point in the end."
- Michael Carrick

"He's still a young lad, with a lot to learn, but there have been flashes of brilliance. Today he made some great saves and I think he's certainly one for the future. He'll be one of the best, I think."
- Wayne Rooney

Video: De Gea's top stop

Manchester United's rousing Stamford Bridge comeback would have counted for nothing, without the stunning intervention of David De Gea.

The 21-year-old Spanish goalkeeper produced a world class stop from Juan Mata's injury-time free-kick, then followed that with a last-gasp save to thwart Gary Cahill a secure a point for the Reds.

De Gea's colleagues were quick to pay tribute, with Michael Carrick admitting: "David’s produced a world class save at a crucial time," while Wayne Rooney suggested: "He'll be one of the best, I think."
