Ahead of Manchester United vs. Sevilla, David De Gea, naturally, was the talk of the build-up following his heroics in the first leg. And Steven Gerrard brilliantly summed up the Spaniard from a rivals perspective.
De Gea was the difference in Sevilla. He prevented the hosts from taking the lead with a superb save.
And the boys in the BT Sport studio continued to sing his praise prior to kick-off.
Rio Ferdinand and Paul Scholes hailed the United stopper, while Gerrard also weighed in, offering a hilarious compliment.
"The biggest compliment I can pay him is I hate him and so do Liverpool fans. He makes difficult shots look easy. He is world class. He's the best keeper in the world," the ex-Liverpool skipper said on De Gea.
Ferdinand also holds De Gea in high regards, calling him the best keeper on the planet.
"He's the best, it's a fact. I don't care. He makes save after save.
"David De Gea is living up to the hype. He's the best goalkeeper on the planet. Produces a world class save almost every game. He's invaluable. I'd do anything and everything it took to keep him at this club," he added.
