, urges his team to keep persisting on their race for the Premier League title after having missed the chance to earn the trophy for eight consecutive years. Since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson it has been hard for the Red Devils to keep up with the title-race.
Still things look to have been improving for
Ole Gunnar Soskjaer
’s side at Old Trafford and with them as the second-placed team on the table De Gea hopes their squad won’t give up on fighting for the trophy.
“I have been fighting for the title in a couple of seasons when Sir Alex was here. Now we are there again and it’s taken us a lot of time to get there to be honest and we cannot miss this chance,”
said the Spaniard.
“We have to be very, very focused in every game and try to win all of them. Hopefully if we are good physically and mentally then we can be there and we can fight for sure for the Premier League.”
“It’s true there is a lot to play yet, but of course it’s a chance to be there, to be top of the league.”
“It’s a good challenge for us. We will play against a difficult team in Burnley, away from home, but if we want to win the league then we have to win these type of matches. I’m saying the same thing, but all we can do is focus on each match, take it game-by-game and be 100 per cent focused.”
De Gea, who has a number of 424 outings with the Red Devils, added:
“I’m very, very proud to reach that number of games.”
“It’s great for me. I feel good, confident and proud. I’ve played a lot of games but hopefully like I said there are many more to come.”
“I feeling very well. I’m training hard, feeling sharp and confident in the games. When you feel well and train well then in the games it’s easy to play.”
“You have to be focused of course and always play at 100 per cent and helping the team is the most important thing. The team is winning and in good form so everything at the moment is good.”
“We have won many games in a row away in the Premier League – that’s not easy.”
“Now everything is very tight, the team has improved a lot, but every Premier League match is difficult and Burnley will be, like I said, a big fight. But we have another chance to make a big step to win the Premier League.”
