United must keep De Gea: Lingard

Premier League team of the week 22

Jesse Lingard has said his team must do anything to keep their star goalkeeper David De Gea.

“He’s one of the best keepers in the world, if not the best,” Lingard said. “We want him to stay. Having a keeper like that gives you extra confidence. He’s a great goalkeeper. It keeps the confidence going and we focus on the next game,” he added. “It was always going to be a test. We knew that from the beginning. We put them on the back foot from the off and hopefully in the future we can start the second half like that as well.”

“For us now we’ve got to keep looking forward. We’ve got another game against Brighton on Saturday and we need three points. We’ll see where we are at the end of the season. We’re very organised. We want to attack, we want to make those runs forward. The midfielders are running forward and we’re putting other teams under pressure. It’s working and we need to carry it on.”

The keeper performed extraordinarily well last night against Tottenham Hotspur to keep a clean sheet. They went on to win the match 1-0.
