Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea has urged the Red Devils to focus ahead of their next Premier League game against Crystal Palace on Wednesday night at Selhurst Park Stadium.
The Spaniard was in goal when Man United played a goalless stalemate against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday night thereby slipping 12 points behind leaders Manchester City on the Premier League table.
De Gea also warned that Man United needed to be more clinical in matches against major rivals if they were to start winning trophies.
“I think that the draw [against Chelsea] is fine, but if we want to do something good and we want to win trophies and win the league, we have to beat these teams,” De Gea told Man United’s official website.
“We didn’t have many chances. We didn’t create too much. I think the last pass was what we missed. He added.
“We created good counterattacks, but at the end, the last pass wasn’t the best option. We gave everything but it wasn’t enough, to be honest.”
Speaking on the penalty on the call for penalty by united after Chelsea’s forward Callum Hudson- Odoi was adjourned to have handled the ball in the box.
He said “When I saw the referee went to the TV to check the penalty, I felt it was a penalty, to be honest.
“Someone said it was a handball. I didn’t see it, but it probably was a penalty. But this is football. This is the VAR, everything. So now, let’s be focused on Crystal Palace.”
United take on Crystal Palace on Wednesday before a top-of-the-table clash with City at the Etihad.
