After booking our place in the FA Cup final, David de Gea has sung the praises of Jose Mourinho but has acknowledged that it is down to the players to prove themselves in the remaining games of the season.

We’ve got a great manager. He’s very experienced, he’s won everything there is to win in the game. What he is really good at is transmitting his winning mentality to the group.

However, at the end of the day, it’s down to ourselves – the players on the field. It is us who make the saves, create the chances and score the goals. So, as a group, we’ve got to get that level of consistency and quality throughout the season.

De Gea has been consistently excellent for the past few seasons and is pleased with his performances this campaign.

Yeah, I’m pretty pleased with my performance. It’s been a fairly complete, all round set of performances from me. I’ve felt good, felt fit and in good form physically throughout the season. Let’s hope that these last few games to go before the end of the season continue the form, then leading into the World Cup, which is an important time for Spain.
