De Gea made eight saves during Manchester United's 3-0 win over Liverpool on Sunday.

De Gea has been arguably the best keeper in the Premier League this season, with his low clean-sheet total (four) more of a result of the defensive issue in front of him. He's done very well against top competition too, posting 24 saves while allowing only three goals to the combination of Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea. Up next is a trip to Aston Villa on Saturday.

De Gea made two saves to record his fourth clean sheet of the season in Saturday's 3-0 win over Hull City.

United have been much better defensively over the past few games, allowing just three goals in their last five games, one each from Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City. Up next is a decent clean sheet opportunity against Stoke City at home on Tuesday.

De Gea is expected to start for Manchester United on Saturday despite dislocating his finger a week ago, reports the Daily Mail.

Manager Louis van Gaal previously said that the keeper was making a quick recovery from the injury, but his return this Saturday is still unexpected for most fantasy players after initially hearing news of the injury.

De Gea is 80 percent ready to face Arsenal this Saturday after suffering a dislocated finger while on international duty, reports the Daily Mail.

The stopper's finger was dislocated during a training session, but his condition has improved to the point where he now believes he has a high chance of starting Saturday's match.

De Gea is dealing with a dislocated finger and could miss Saturday's trip to Arsenal, The Guardian reports.

De Gea suffered the injury while on international duty, though he still thinks he has a chance to face the Gunners. Rumors have been rampant recently that he could be replaced by Victor Valdes, who has been training with Manchester United, though it appears unlikely to happen so soon.

De Gea needed to make only one save during Manchester United's 1-0 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

De Gea nabbed his third clean sheet of the season and first since Sept. 14 against QPR at Old Trafford. United used Daley Blind and Paddy McNair as their centrebacks Saturday, a duo unlikely to be used again. It was a solid performance, but there are just too many question marks in defense to trust de Gea as a viable fantasy option, especially at Arsenal after the international break.

Manchester United continues to discuss an improved contract for De Gea as Real Madrid monitor his performances, according to the Daily Mail.

De Gea continues to make a case for first-choice in the Spain national team over Iker Casillas, and Real Madrid are considering a similar move. De Gea has been in fantastic form recently, saving a penalty in his last league match.

De Gea made four saves, including denying Leighton Baines on a penalty for the first time in his career, during Manchester United's 2-1 win over Everton on Sunday.

De Gea made a number of excellent saves, though most fantasy points don't give extra points for good-looking denials. The United defense is still very much a work-in-progress, which doesn't help De Gea's fantasy value for clean sheets. That being said, he's got a decent matchup against West Brom on Oct. 20 after the international break before back-to-back fixtures against Chelsea and Manchester City.
