David de Gea helped Manchester United beat Spurs on Sunday

De Gea made 11 saves to help Ole Gunnar Solskjaer record his sixth straight win since becoming United caretaker manager last month.

"He's obviously saved us at times, and I said to him after the game 'You could have caught the ball couple of times!'. But he was blocking things with his feet, his hands, and, at times, I think with his head as well!"

Team-mate Nemanja Matic echoed Young's praise, insisting De Gea's display was worthy of the man-of-the-match accolade.

"He was great like always," Matic said.
