Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea made his first appearance of the season in the 3-1 win over Liverpool just a day after signing a new four-year contract at Old Trafford

HANDLING

Despite it being his first game of the season, Liverpool failed to properly test the Spain international and he was fairly assured with the ball in hand.

PRESENCE

Had one slip in the second half which could have led to a goal but for most of the game up to that point he was a spectator.

SHARPNESS

A brilliant save from Danny Ings and another decent effort to deny Jordon Ibe showed despite his time in the wilderness he has lost none of his reflexes.

OVERALL

His return to the side was something of an anti-climax in many respects as he hardly had anything to do but his name was cheered to the rafters louder than any other player, representing the perfect comeback.
