David de Gea feels Manchester United well placed in the race for the top four in the Premier League after Tuesday’s 2-0 victory over Brighton, saying: “With this quality we have to win a lot of points.”
The Red Devils ended the disappointing result with a victory over the Seagulls thanks to goals in the second half Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandez.
United are fighting Hammers, Arsenal, Wolves and Tottenham for the place, and De Gea is disappointed that fourth place is all that the Red Devils are rejecting in the league, but says that they have the firepower to get there.
“We have to fight for more than the top four, but it’s a reality,” said the Spaniard after the victory over the Seagulls.
“There are a lot of teams fighting for the same position, and with that quality we have to win a lot of points.”
The Red Devils gave a bad game and a draw against Burnley and Southampton, so De Gea was happy to win over Brighton’s very good side.
“It’s always great if you have three points, especially after we played a draw in the last few games. We are all very happy, ”he said.
“We knew Brighton were one of the teams that played very well with the ball, pressed very well, and for me it’s a very good team. We better started the second half, we scored a goal, they increased, but big three points and the game was.
The personal moment of De Gea’s meeting was a spectacular save from a header by Jacob Moder in the first half, which he was not afraid to describe how good it was.
“Honestly, it’s very difficult,” he said. “At the time, it was a big save because we kept the field clean.
“That’s what we want at the moment, to maintain compactness in defense. Honestly, it was a wonderful rescue.
