The goalkeeper excelled in United’s 1-0 win over West Ham at Old Trafford on Sunday, producing three spectacular saves to provide the perfect response to reports in Spain that he was cut from his country’s squad for the World Cup. .
On the day that Marcus Rashford scored his 100th goal for United, it was De Gea who secured the victory that takes Ten Hag’s side to fifth in the Premier League.

“You won’t be Manchester United’s No 1 for that long if you’re not a fantastic goalkeeper,” said West Ham manager David Moyes. “He made two brilliant saves today for them and probably saved them from that point of view, but it’s disappointing for us not to score because we put them under enough pressure.”

De Gea denied Michail Antonio, Kurt Zouma and Declan Rice after a late West Ham attack.

They were the kind of heroism United have grown accustomed to over the course of their 11 years at the club, with their ability to stop the shot never in question.

But there were doubts about his ability to play from the back with his feet, which has increasingly become a requirement for modern goalkeepers.

This contributed to him losing his place in the Spanish national team, with reports claiming he will miss Qatar. It also raised doubts about his long-term future at United, with Ten Hag known for his determination to have a goalkeeper who can help build the game at defence.
