Following a difficult first season at the club, David de Gea seems a lot more settled this season and has started to show improvements where making his presence known in the box is concerned.

De Gea recognises the pressure he’s under at United but insists he enjoys the challenge.

“I’m at a huge club and there are big demands on you,” David told United Review. “As a goalkeeper I’m well aware that any mistake can be magnified by the press and the fans. That’s always the case for goalkeepers, no matter where you play. But it’s true that here at Manchester United there’s added pressure. It’s bigger than it was for me at Atletico Madrid and also for the Spain Under-21 team. It’s a challenge that’s enjoyable and it ensures you’re always striving to operate at 100 per cent.”
