De Gea exclusive: Liverpool is a game to savour
It was Sergio Romero enjoying the limelight during Monday's stellar win at Chelsea, with David De Gea proudly watching on from his place on the bench.
“It’s the biggest game in England,”our no.1 told United Review.
“It’s a very special game, for the fans, the club and the players and, above all, when it’s at Old Trafford, it’s always even more of an occasion. It’s just a massive game.
“We aim to enjoy and, of course, we’ll be trying our best to win it!”
“When I was in Spain, you always used to hear talk of the big rivalry and the huge game, or Clásico, between Manchester United and Liverpool,“ he said. ”You have two very big clubs, and it’s a game to really savour.”
“I’ve played quite a few games against them now, so I don’t know…”De Gea pondered.
“Maybe the game at Old Trafford when we won 3-0 [14 December 2014]. I recall a few good games but maybe that 3-0 win at Old Trafford is the one that stands out, as it was a good experience. But every game we play against Liverpool is a special one.”
“No matter what each of the two teams are playing for, this game is always very different and unique,”he says.
“Both teams are competing on various fronts but we are playing at home, we want to win and want to keep battling to get into the Champions League next season.”
“You don’t just focus on the one player,”proclaims David.
“They have got a good side with some good players individually. You prepare like you would for any other game, knowing that you are up against a very good side with some top players.“
