Manchester United defender Patrice Evra believes that keeper David de Gea can become one of the best in the world.

Manchester United defender Patrice Evra believes that David de Gea can become one of the best goalkeepers in the world.

The 20-year-old had come in for some criticism following his £18m move from Atletico Madrid over the summer, but recent performances against Chelsea and Stoke have convinced Evra that the Spaniard has great potential.

"David is doing very well - his confidence is going up all the time," Evra told MUTV.

"You can see when he makes a great save, all the players are very happy for him. We are all behind him and support him.

"I am really confident in him. I am looking forward and he can become one of the best."

United continue their Champions League campaign on Tuesday when they take on Basel at Old Trafford.
