In an innocuous-looking incident, De Gea immediately grabbed the back of his thigh after clearing a backpass from his own player.
He sat on the ground in his six-yard box before making his own way off the pitch accompanied by the Spanish medical team.
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be hoping the injury is not serious, with a huge game against Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday.
