De Gea: The team is stronger now
David De Gea has spoken to us about his wonder save, Felli's top form and Romelu's importance to the team...
How do you rate your save at the end of the match? "It was important to get the three points, this is a really tough game, we pushed a lot and they put a lot of persons in the box, so it is a really important game for us. We did well, we won and we are happy.” Is it harder when it is so close to you? "Normally, when it is a header and it is close to the goal, you just have to react as quickly as possible. I made the save, it is important for the team, for me and we are all happy." How do you sum up the win? “It is a difficult place to come. Especially after the international break, it is always difficult to come back. Some players are a bit tired. This is a difficult stadium, against a difficult team, so these are three really important points for us.” What can you say about Marouane Fellaini? “Felli is really important for us, especially in these types of games. He held his job really well, he helped the team all of the team, defending balls and even in the goals as well. He had a great game and we are really happy to have him here.” How important is it to have Romelu Lukaku scoring regularly? "He is a great striker. He scored goals for the national team and he came back here to score an important goal for us. He is in a good moment and we need to keep him like this, scoring goals.” Just how hard is it after the international break? "It is always a difficult game after the international break. We didn’t have so much time to prepare for this game. Players are a bit tired, they played two games away, so it is tough, but we won today, had a great game and we are all happy.” We have won consecutive goals away from home – is that an answer to our critics? “The team is playing better, we are keeping control of the games. It was just for a bit at the end when we had problems, but I think the team is stronger now, we feel really confident, so now we have to keep looking forward and keep this level.”
