De Gea was in inspired form to help United to a 3-1 victory over Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday, making no fewer than 14 saves - including a stunning double-stop to deny Alexandre Lacazette and Alexis Sanchez - to keep the rampant hosts at bay.
De Gea displayed nearly unfathomable reflexes, matchless athleticism and typically dependable distribution to make a case for being the world's greatest goalkeeper.
De Gea saved twice in quick succession from Hector Bellerin and Sead Kolasinac shortly before half-time and somehow kept out United striker Romelu Lukaku's miskick when trying to clear from a corner.
And the summer signing was instrumental in helping Manchester United to hold their own against Arsenal's talented midfield of Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil and Granit Xhaka.
With a two-goal cushion restored and Paul Pogba sent off in the 74th minute, United fully soaked up the pressure late on.
It can also be argued that not only is he the best man between the sticks but that De Gea is now better in his position than any other player is in theirs.

"We had 10 chances to score, and their goalkeeper was outstanding", said Arsene Wenger after Arsenal's 12-match home winning run in the Premier League was snapped, despite having 75 per cent of the ball and taking 33 shots. When you see the potential we have and in the end the way we started at the back is very hard to swallow.
