De Gea: We’ll keep fighting

De Gea: We’ll keep fighting

David de Gea was once again the hero for Manchester United as a string of saves meant Daley Blind was in a position to steal a late point against West Ham on Sunday.

It has become a familiar theme this season. Although United’s defence hasn’t been too troubled in 2015, de Gea was the star before Christmas, making save after save in several games which United went on to win.

At Upton Park, de Gea twice thwarted Enner Valencia in the first half as well as James Tomkins before making a quick-fire double save as United left themselves open late in the game.

Whilst Blind will take the headlines for the stoppage time goal, de Gea once again ensured his team-mates were in a position to strike late on.

Before Christmas, de Gea put in superb individual performances against rivals Arsenal, Southampton and particularly Liverpool which allowed United to walk away with three points on all three occasions.

His form now means United fans have faith their side won’t concede too many and the proof is in the results as the team haven’t conceded more than one goal in a game since October when they drew 2-2 with West Brom.

De Gea’s agent confirms he is negotiating new deal with Man United.
