David de Gea, who made several costly mistakes last season as he made the adjustment from Spain, is well aware that there is a lot more pressure on him at United than anywhere he’s been before.

“I’m at a huge club now and there are big demands on you,” he said. “As a goalkeeper, I’m well aware that any mistake can be magnified by the fans. But it’s true that here at Manchester United there’s added pressure. It’s bigger right now than it was for me at Atletico Madrid and also for Spain Under-21s.”
