David Seaman has hailed David De Gea’s “unbelievable” progress at Manchester United.

The Red Devils shot stopper produced a man of the match performance at The Emirates as the Spaniard made eight saves to deny the Gunners.

He’s learning fast and he’s at a big club which helps. I would give him nine out of 10

Kieran Gibbs’s own goal and Wayne Rooney’s 81st-minute strike sealed three points despite substitute Olivier Giroud’s stoppage-time consolation strike.

And former Arsenal goalkeeper Seaman rates the United number one, highlighting his development since his early struggles at United in 2011/12 season.

“I like him a lot. He really struggled when he first came, made a couple of mistakes but shows character,” Seaman told Sky Sports.

“In a goalkeeper you look at how they are physically – can they cope with challenges all the time? Then reactions and shot-stopping are all guaranteed – people say to me ‘he’s a great shot-stopper’ but he’s a goalie, that’s what he should be!

“It’s the other stuff, like how you react from mistakes. He had a bad time when he first came but reacted in an unbelievable way.

“He’s learning fast and he’s at a big club which helps. I would give him nine out of 10.”

De Gea scooped United’s player of the month award for October after a series of impressive performances.

Is David De Gea the league’s best goalkeeper?
