David de Gea says 'lack of quality' could be the reason behind Manchester United's poor start to the season
Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea highlighted the lack of quality in the team as one of the reasons for his team's inconsistent run. The Red Devils have been shaky this season and have had a variety of good and bad results this season. They have failed to win two back-to-back Premier League games so far.
The victory against Norwich City last month ended Solskjaer's seven-month-long wait for a Premier League away win.
Can Manchester United break into the top 4 this season?
David de Gea is one of the senior figures at Manchester United now after having joined the club from Atletico Madrid at the start of the decade. The Spaniard has been one of the best players for Manchester United during this decade in what has been a very poor spell for the Red Devils.
In an interview with Sky Sports, De Gea said,
The team is what it is, and results are what they have been recently. It's true that the first half was horrible, probably one of the worst this year.
The reaction of the team in the second half was important, but it's not enough. We should win these type of games to be on top, we need to win four or five games in a row to be at the top, but at the moment the team is not playing so well.
We're giving it everything, we're trying to get those big wins that can put us high up in the table, but the truth is at the moment we're not consistent enough, there's much to train and much to improve.
I don't think it's through any lack of effort, the boys are leaving everything out on the field in training and games. You could point maybe to a lack of quality in certain areas, but certainly not a lack of fight.
Manchester United went down by two goals in the opening half at Bramall Lane before scoring three goals in seven minutes to come close to victory before Oliver McBurnie scored in the 90th minute to give the Blades a point.Published 29 Nov 2019, 22:31 IST
