“David was excellent and produced three or four really top saves,” said Ferguson. “He’s improving all the time.
“I’m pleased for the boy. This is a difficult place to come and we would have taken 1-1 before the game.”
“There was one save, I think it was in the first half when he got a touch of the ball that put it on the outside of the post,” Ferguson added.
“It was an absolutely superb save.”
“It’s a difficult place to come back to and to perform like that. He played for Atletico, so he’ll be pleased with that.”
