Paul Ince is convinced that David De Gea has already proved himself as the best goalkeeper in the world after his sparkling form for Manchester United.

The Spanish shot-stopper has been earning plenty of praise for his brilliant performances for the Red Devils in recent weeks and he was once again the star of the show last week.

De Gea produced some brilliant saves to help Manchester United keep a clean sheet and claim a goalless draw in their Champions League clash with Sevilla on Wednesday night.

The 27-year-old will be hoping to be on top form once again as the Red Devils prepare to host Chelsea FC in their crunch Premier League showdown at Old Trafford on Sunday.

And former Manchester United star Ince is certain that De Gea has now earned the status as the world’s top shot-stopper.

Writing in his column for Paddy Power, Ince said: “For me, David de Gea is the best goalkeeper in the world.

“He has proved it time and time again, consistently, at a top level. He’s ahead of everybody in the Premier League, and the save he made from the header against Sevilla was superhuman.

“He keeps Man United in countless games, and you have to wonder where they’d be without them sometimes.”

Manchester United are aiming to at least break into the top four this season after they ended up in sixth place in the Premier League last term.

The Red Devils have been in stuttering form in recent weeks in the top flight and have lost two of their last three Premier League outings ahead of their showdown with Chelsea FC.
