Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea believes the Reds have had a ‘solid’ season, especially at the back.

A clean sheet in Saturday’s 1-0 win over Bournemouth made it shutout number 17 of the campaign, earning the Spaniard his second-ever Golden Glove accolade in the Premier League

Talking to MUTV at full-time, David was quick to acknowledge his team-mates for contributing to his award over the duration of the season. 

“Myself and the team did really well [this term],” he began. “Especially in the defensive side, I think we’ve been really solid the whole season.”

David De Gea says his Premier League Golden Glove is due to the resilience of the whole team...

“I think I’ve played good the whole season and helping the team as much as I can, keeping some good clean sheets. 

“You know when you keep clean sheets we are more close to winning games. 

“Today [against Bournemouth], we kept another one, a massive three points, and closer to finishing in the top four so that is very good for us.”

Our no.1 believes we have improved ‘massively’ compared to last season, and are heading in the right direction moving forward. 

“I think it [this campaign] is a massive improvement from last season. 

“I think we are [going] in the right way but still the job is not done. We still have two games at home [and] we will try to win both. 

“We know we need just one point [to secure top four], but let’s go and try and win both."
