David de Gea has issued a rallying cry to his Manchester United teammates in their bid to overturn their 2-0 Europa League deficit against Liverpool.
The in-form goalkeeper kept United in the tie with some excellent reflex saves in the first leg at Anfield and insists his side can overcome on what promises to be a tense evening at Old Trafford.
“With United, anything is possible,” De Gea told United Review. “That’s one of the great qualities of this club, we always believe and always fight until the end.”
De Gea won the competition with Atletico Madrid in 2010 and hasn’t given up hope of repeating the feat with United.
He also maintains United will play much better than their inept display last Thursday.
“We believe in ourselves and we believe we can be in the next round. We didn’t play to our best last week, that’s clear and they had a lot of chances and possession. But now we have a chance to put things right at home.
“We need to improve in all things – both defensively and attacking. We need to fight hard, be aggressive and show our passion. We need to show why we are Manchester United.
“We know we have the quality and we have the belief, and we want to make it a special night for our fans who support us no matter what.”
Liverpool will give a late fitness test to De Gea’s fellow countryman Alberto Moreno, while compatriot Ander Herrera is a doubt for Manchester United.
