Gary Neville compares David de Gea to Gordon Banks after Man Utd wonder save

Gary Neville couldn't help but compare United shot-stopper David de Gea to England legend Gordon Banks after the Spaniard kept his side well and truly in the game in the first half.

In the opening 20 minutes, De Gea pulled off two world-class saves before a Marcus Rashford double and a goal from Jadon Sancho sealed a 3-0 win for the home side.

As fans waxed lyrical on social media, former United right-back Neville, voicing his opinions on co-commentary for Sky Sports, compared the 32-year-old to World Cup winner Banks.
