Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has revealed that he is wary of the threat posed by Swansea City ahead of their Premier League match today at Old Trafford.
Both sides have struggled so far this season with the Wales side coming out worst and even sacked manager Gary Monk but will be confident that they’ve defeated the Red Devils in each of their last three league games.
However, De Gea is confident that his side can end their eight-game winless run in all competitions and record a much-needed three points against the visitors.
“They are a good side. They are the sort of team that likes to play football and enjoy possession of the ball. It’s true that last season they made life difficult for us and we lost both games against them,” he told Man United’s official website.
“I know we haven’t done so well against them in the recent past, but it’s a new year and so we’ll obviously be giving it everything at Old Trafford in front of our own fans in order to secure the win.”
Swansea are just a spot above relegation in 17th position with 19 points from 19 matches while Manchester United are in sixth place, nine points adrift joint leader Arsenal and Leicester City.
