Manchester United hero Gary Bailey rates David de Gea a better goalkeeper than Chelsea‘s Thibaut Courtois.

The pair are sure to be key in tonight’s big game.

When asked to pick which of the number ones was better, Bailey replied to Inside United: “Difficult one. I think David is because there were a couple of question marks last year with Courtois, but both are great. When Courtois was at Atletico Madrid, he was absolutely brilliant.

“It’s difficult to separate keepers. People ask whether David or Neuer or Buffon is best and they’re all different types of keepers, at different ages, doing different things. I just think we are lucky to have David and I really believe, if we get one or two pieces of this jigsaw to click into gear, we’ve got a wonderful squad.

“It’s got to come good and, by good, it’s got to come close to winning the league. We’re almost there and Jose is the man to do it.”
