David De Gea looking to get club career back on track with start against Liverpool

Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea is ready to play for Manchester United once again after his failed transfer to Real Madrid during the summer. United manager Louis van Gaal has kept the Spaniard out of his squad for the first six matches of the season, previously suggesting that after the closure of the transfer window, De Gea may be in the right frame of mind to play for the club once again. De Gea started his first match of the new season, playing 90 minutes for Spain in their 1-0 victory over Macedonia on Tuesday evening, in which United team-mate Juan Mata scored a stunning goal.

This is the first time the Spaniard has spoken since his transfer to Real Madrid collapsed after the closure of the transfer window in Spain on the 31st August 2015, which must have affected the players mental state, but also something he could get over in a short space of time, which seems to be the case. The Manchester Evening News have reported De Gea as saying:

“I felt well.

“The coach (Vicente del Bosque) has given me confidence.

“Now we need to continue to work and let’s see if I’m also lucky in my club.

“My future is going to be the same as it is now. I’m calm, will continue to work and improve.

“In conclusion, enjoying football. I’m happy.”

Summer signing Sergio Romero, who has started United’s six matches so far this season, has done well, conceding just three goals in those matches. Against a team like Liverpool, having the player involved in a match which involves an immense amount of rivalry could see United at a disadvantage. The fact tat De Gea played for Spain on Tuesday evening, then having stated that he wants to see if he is also lucky at his club, suggests that now is the time De Gea walks back into the starting XI, in the biggest match so far this season. A match where United will be looking to prove their doubters wrong, also to continue their winning streak over Liverpool under the reign of Louis van Gaal.

Having De Gea back in the squad will no doubt strengthen the back line, who have also done well this season with Matteo Darmian looking like he has played for United for a matter of years, Chris Smalling commanding his area, Daley Blind playing as a central defender and not doing all that bad, and Luke Shaw putting last season behind him and proving his doubters wrong, so far at least. Marcos Rojo played 71 minutes for Argentina in the early hours of Wednesday morning, which may see him becoming more involved for United this weekend.
