Ben Foster: David de Gea is like Lionel Messi
Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster has praised Manchester United's David de Gea after his heroic performance against his side last Saturday.
De Gea was in top form for Jose Mourinho's side, making a stretching save to deny Watford a goal late in the game with the score at 2-1.
The former Manchester United player also described De Gea as a natural goalkeeper, who is like Messi.
According to Sky Sports, he said: "He is the most natural goalie you will ever see. He is the Messi of goalkeeping."
After a bad World Cup, United fans will be glad that the Spaniard is back to his best for the club.
United face Young Boys in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday, and the former Atletico Madrid man is definitely going to be between the sticks for Mourinho's men.
United fans will be hoping that Mourinho will ditch any form of defensive football in Switzerland on Wednesday after last season's second round fiasco against Sevilla.
The Old Trafford side are on the back of two league wins, and will be expected to secure all three points from the game.
