Manchester United fans have reacted to David de Gea’s shock inclusion in the starting XI to face Liverpool.
The 28-year-old was expected to miss the visit of the Merseysiders with a hamstring injury, which he picked up on international duty with Spain.
The former Atletico Madrid stopper appeared to sustain the injury in the 60th minute of Spain’s 1-1 draw with Sweden in their Euro 2020 qualifier on Tuesday night.
De Gea, however, has shaken off the setback – which led to his substitution – and will start between the sticks for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men, who are badly in need of a win.
“De Gea will return to being the best in the world today mark my words,” tweeted one Manchester United.
Another said: “David De Gea returning to the starting XI for Liverpool is the greatest comeback since Jesus himself was resurrected
“De Gea playing with an injury which means after today,we will see him next year,” tweeted another of the Old Trafford faithful.
“De Gea is playing,” said one over the moon United supporter. “We got James and Bissaka too.”
