Former Manchester United goalkeeper Gary Bailey is impressed by the club's two current shot-stoppers.

Anders Lindegaard and David De Gea both have their fans in the battle to be United's No1.

Bailey told manutd.com: "Each one has his own qualities. David De Gea is a wonderful shot-stopper and he's also very composed and confident with the ball at his feet. He's done a lot in football when you consider he's only young. It's unusual for goalkeepers to blossom so early, but he's an exceptional talent.

"The only thing David needs to get used to is the physical nature of English football; it's very different to the Spanish game. Anders is a little older and I think sometimes you need that experience. He's great in the air and commands his penalty area. They're two fantastic goalkeepers and they keep each other on their toes. The manager has a tough choice to make when it comes to picking the right man to start."
