Manchester United goalkeeper is determined that the Red Devils could become the ultimate champions of the 20-21 Premier League.

David de Gea

is encouraging his side to dream and shoot for the ultimate prize since this season of the

Premier League

is ‘strange.’

Manchester United

have boasted another victory in the match against West Ham which puts them close to the frontrunners with five points difference. Their battle against rivals Manchester City came down to a clean sheet and the shot-stopper de Gea is taking it positively and believes United can still grab the Premier League crown.

I think, defensively, we were perfect,

” David de Gea said.

They didn't create too many chances, maybe two or three big chances, but I think, against them, it was defensively a great game.

“So we need to be happy, of course, for the clean sheet but maybe it's not enough, you know. We played at home, we always want to win, especially against Man City, so I think we missed a big chance to beat them.

“But against players like [Kevin] De Bruyne, [Raheem] Sterling, good players, you have to be focused for the 90 minutes. So we did it, I think we showed our confidence in defence. I think the players played really good.

“For me, the most important thing in the team is the defensive part so we showed again that we can defend good.

“We can be very strong in the back four and I think, the whole team, we pressed really high.”

De Gea added: “

So we made them make mistakes in the build-up. So I think it was a good game for us, a tight game, so the draw was fine. We looked very well, we looked strong.

“Now I think, this year, the Premier League is very open, many teams are fighting for the title. We have to dream, we have to believe that we can win the Premier League this year and go for it.

“It's a very strange season. To be honest, there are many teams fighting for the top place, so I think we need to be very focused every game and try to win the Premier League.”

The Red Devils will lock horn with

Sheffield United

, who sit rock-bottom.
