Manchester United stars Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes heaped praise on David De Gea after his performance in victory at Norwich City.

The pair believe De Gea is now providing United with a solid foundation.

“David has been in good form over the last four or five weeks and credit to him,” said Giggs who made his 900th United appearance at Norwich.

“He is a young keeper and is constantly improving. He works hard on the training pitch and so he deserves everything he gets. He is great to have around the place.

“I was really pleased for him at Norwich. That performance doesn’t surprise me because he is a talent.

“There is pressure being a United player full stop and then there is extra pressure when you have a price tag like David has.

“It is an added pressure but the form he is showing is great for him and us. He has coped well with it all.”

Scholes added his tribute to the Spaniard.

“David de Gea was great at Norwich. He has made some really great saves,” said the midfielder.

“He came out and took some good crosses and held onto everything as well. When you have a keeper playing like that it gives the back four and all the team a lot of confidence.”
