De Gea: We all felt the special atmosphere
"The fans were amazing and when we scored the second goal it was crazy," says David De Gea...
What did you make of that? “Well I think we nearly had a perfect game and especially defensively, because we defended really well and we didn't concede many chances. When you play against City you know they are going to pressure, they are going to have the ball, but I thought we had a great game, we deserved the three points and we are really, really happy.” That is eight clean sheets from an unbeaten run of 10 matches. You all must feel confident? “The whole team is in a good moment, so we need to keep doing it like we did tonight. We need to be very consistent until the end of the season, playing like a team, creating chances, defending properly, so let's see what we can achieve at the end of the season.” You expect City to have the ball but they didn't create many chances... “Normally you expect to make a lot of saves against City but we defended nearly perfectly. They have a couple of good chances but at the end I think we deserved the win, we deserved the three points and I am very happy for the team-mates and the fans, because they have been amazing tonight. It is great for the club.” What about that assist from Bruno Fernandes for the opening goal - a special moment? “Yeah he is a smart player, he is clever on the pitch. He is a different player. When he is on the ball he can do a lot of things. This is why Manchester has signed Bruno. He is perfect for us. Anthony as well, he makes a great kick at goal. Let's keep looking forward, keep winning games and enjoy the win.” What was your view of the second goal from Scott? “It was a bit strange. I was looking to the defenders and suddenly I saw the ball going towards the goal. It was great. We scored a second goal in the last minute, the fans went crazy and it was great for us.” After Chelsea won earlier today, is this a huge win in the race for the top four? “I think so, it is massive for us and especially because we are playing against one of the best teams in the Premier League. Now we are in a very good moment so we need to keep showing this level to being the top four.” What about that support today? “It was great. The whole game, the fans were amazing and when we scored the second goals it was crazy. The players feel everything and we want to say thank you to the.”
