Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea praised his side’s performance against Chelsea and feels they deserved all three points.
United’s winless run at Old Trafford in the Premier League stretched to a fifth game — the longest we’ve suffered since February 1990, and on top of that it’s the first time United have failed to win one of their opening three home fixtures in the league since 1972-73.
De Gea thinks his side were hard done by to take just a point from the game, which leaves them 15th in the Premier League table after five games.
“For me, we created enough chances to win the game. It was a tight game against a good team, of course, but I think we deserved a bit more,” the United goalkeeper told MUTV.
“I think we had two or three big chances, especially with Rashy, but the keeper saves them. That is fine and, like I said before, we deserve a bit more.
“It was a tough game and now we need to look forward to the next game.”
Although it will be seen as two points dropped at home to Chelsea, it marked De Gea and United’s first clean sheet in the league this season.
“I think for us it is very important to start to keep clean sheets, especially at home,” he added. “Today we defended really well and didn’t conceded many chances.
“We always try in every training session to improve, to make the team better defensively, work with each other, and talk to each other.
“It was important today to get a clean sheet against a top team like the one we played today. That’s the way to keep going and the way to win games.”
