Manchester United boss Louis Van Gaal described David De Gea’s performance this year as “unbelievable”.
The Spaniard, who has continuously been linked with a move to Real Madrid, put in another superb performance against Newcastle United on Wednesday night.
Van Gaal admitted the De Gea is in unbelievable form and he rates him among the highest he coached in his career.
"David De Gea, this year, is unbelievable," van Gaal told Sky sports.
"In my career I have a lot of good goalkeepers, for example Edwin van der Sar was one of my goalkeepers and (Victor) Valdes also with Barcelona, but De Gea is having a great season.”
The Dutchman also thought that the Red Devils deserved to pick up all three points against Newcastle and believes the side is mentally in a good space.
"When you lose points - and we have done that a lot of times in this competition - when you are the better team, then it is very disappointing. That's also a big influence in the mental state of my team," he said.
"But today, we rewarded ourselves at the end of the match in a fantastic moment because all the competitors have won also their games.
"Now we are still fourth, we have dominated the game in an away match, difficult ground, so everybody is full of confidence to play against Arsenal in the FA Cup quarter-finals, and that's very important."
David De Gea has played 33 games for Manchester United and has kept 12 clean sheets along the way.
