The Sun gave De Gea their 'star man' vote with a rating of eight out of ten, while the Telegraph's Henry Winter writes: "If David De Gea continues to keep goal as defiantly, athletically and occasionally as unorthodoxly as this, United will continue to progress towards Wembley."
However, Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho is still confident of halting the Reds in the return leg at Old Trafford. “I am expecting a very strong opponent with very good players, but I am confident and 100 per cent sure we can do this,” he says.
