Superhuman. Miracle. Two words to describe David De Gea's heroics between the sticks against Liverpool, and he's explained just how he pulled off the unbelievable save.
De Gea, once again, produced a stunning save at Anfield following his brilliant finger-tip effort last season. Philippe Coutinho was unable to find the net on that occasion, and this time around, his teammate Joel Matip also couldn't score past him.
Roberto Firmino provided a scrumptious ball to Matip who made decent connection via a side-foot volley.
But the Spanish international stuck out a foot, preventing the Liverpool defender from scoring. His reaction was on point, and following the game, he revealed he tried to react as quick as possible.
"Well I don't know, tried to react quickly. Sometimes football so quickly I just put my foot out and saved the ball," De Gea told Sky Sports via Metro.
"It was my instinct to react quickly and get to the ball," he added.

When asked by the reported on which Anfield save was better, De Gea replied by saying: "I don't know, every save is important especially at Anfield."
"The feeling is very good, it's one point for us and we need to keep going."
De Gea continues: "We always try to win the games but Liverpool were better than us. It's one point away from home so we are happy."
The best in the world? Twitter certainly thinks so:
