It saw De Gea, who joined United from Atletico Madrid in 2011, move beyond another keeper in Schmeichel in the club’s all-time list.

De Gea, 29, remains a long way behind Ryan Giggs, the man with the most United appearances regardless of nationality.

The Welshman spent his entire career at Old Trafford and played for them on 963 occasions.
