The shot-stopper and his Manchester United team-mates are gearing up for their cup clash as they look to return to winning ways following the disappointment of their 1-0 loss to Southampton in the Premier League last weekend.
De Gea has been a regular fixture in the Red Devils first team this season and will be expecting to start Friday’s game.
And the Spain international seemed to be relaxed as he geared up for the game by spending some time with his partner.
De Gea’s girlfriend posted the picture above on her personal Instagram account on Thursday evening and wrote: “LOVE!!! @d_degeaofficial”
De Gea has made 19 Premier League appearances for United so far this season and also featured six times in the Champions League group stage.
