David de Gea proved why he is regarded by many as the best goalkeeper in the world with a brilliant display against Tottenham and his team-mates were quick to pay tribute to him following the game.

The Spaniard made a string of fine saves - including 11 in the second-half - to deny Harry Kane and co as United held on to their lead after going ahead courtesy of a first half goal from Marcus Rashford at Wembley.

His fellow Red Devils were clearly grateful, taking to social media to praise the stopper's performance.

'Man like @d_degeaofficial', wrote Romelu Lukaku as he shared a cartoon of De Gea pulling a barrier down to cover the goal with the words 'sorry, closed on Sunday' written on it. Luke Shaw tweeted the same image.

Midfielder Ander Herrera followed suit, posting a photo of himself and the goalkeeper hugging at the final whistle with the caption 'no words @d_degeaofficial'.

He would later share a story from the team coach, placing a top hat emoticon on De Gea's head.

Compatriot Juan Mata went for a sarcastic approach as he responded 'nah, average' to De Gea's tweet about it being a 'perfect night'.    

He then wrote 'I know you all felt like me' in response to a clip from Sky of himself staring in amazement at De Gea at the end of the game with the caption 'find someone who looks at you the way Juan Mata looks at David De Gea'. 

The love-in did not stop there as Victor Lindelof and Andreas Pereira both took opportunities to post images with the man of the hour on United's train back to Manchester. 

Midfielder Nemanja Matic also posted a dressing room selfie with the keeper, along with the warning 'we are taking over! Huge win tonight. De Gea was on fire!'

The praise for De Gea continued to pour in from the footballing world, with his former United team mate Darren Fletcher declaring him the best in the world.

Speaking on Match of the Day 2, Fletcher said: 'I think he has almost revolutionised the goalkeeping position – it is hard to get your body down and save with your hands, so use your feet, they are an asset.

'His mannerisms, he is so cool, after every one of those saves he just takes it in his stride, he doesn't get too high doesn't get too low

'The odd time he does make a mistake it doesn't affect him because he doesn't get carried away when he makes fantastic saves either

'He is not shouting at his defenders and go crazy. He is cool, calm and collected and that transcends him. He is the best goalkeeper in the world.'
