Reflecting on his heroics in Man United’s 1-0 win over West Ham United, David de Gea told Sky Sports: “It’s a great win for us. If we want to achieve and be in the top places we have to win games like this today.
“Of the two saves, probably the header from Zouma was the best because it was almost certainly going in but I am happy for all of them. Happy to make the saves and it’s a massive win.
“We are pressing well and recovering the ball well high up the pitch. We conceded some chances at the end but West Ham are a great team. I’m really happy to be honest.
“We had a difficult start to the season, Man United is a massive club and we are getting better. We can keep more clean sheets, play well and keep going until the end.
“I don’t like to think too far into the future, we will just take it day by day. Big game on Thursday and we want to finish top of the group. We will go for another game, more energy and keep going again.”
De Gea bailed out United after a poor second-half display to earn his fifth clean sheet from the last six games.
He’s slowly regaining top form for the Red Devils, and that performance has gotten many wondering why he didn’t get selected for Spain’s World Cup squad.
