He has now cemented his place as Manchester United’s number 1 after having to battle for his place with Anders Lindegaard, and with his first title in sight the keeper is feeling good as he told Inside United:
“I’m feeling well, in good shape and I’m at ease on the pitch. I’ve played a lot of matches but I get plenty of rest at home and I eat well – it’s important to look after myself.
“I’m more confident and feel I’m playing consistently because I’ve had a prolonged run in the team. But training well and having a good mental attitude brings its rewards. Everything you put in, you get out. That is what you’re seeing now – I’m very happy with how I’m playing.”
A game with Man City on Monday beckons but De Gea is taking it in his stride and looking at the game at another opportunity to pick up 3 points and maintain the high standards the team have set this season:
“I’d love to win the league this season but so does everyone else in the team.
“We’re all focused on getting three points from every game – that is what will take us to our objective. We appreciate where we are in the league and we want to finish it.”
