David de Gea believes an uplift in confidence is making winning easy for Manchester United.
United remain unbeaten in the Premier League, having won five and drawn one of their six matches so far, with De Gea only conceding two goals in the process.
Jose Mourinho’s side face Crystal Palace on Saturday, who sit bottom of the league without a point, knowing that a win could put them top of the league above rivals Manchester City – who face a tough trip to Chelsea in the evening kick-off.
De Gea warned United against thinking too far ahead following their strong start, but admits the belief inside the dressing room is taking the pressure off.
“It’s just the beginning, we have had great games,” De Gea told Sky Sports News. “We’ve created a lot of chances, scored goals, and we need to keep that level.
“The team is now with a lot of confidence and it is easy when you take confidence to the pitch. We have to keep winning, playing well and scoring goals.”
De Gea has once again been praised for his form in goal for United, and he believes the team’s positive attitude is rubbing off on him.
“I feel really well, I feel confident, strong,” De Gea added.
“I train hard every day and it’s good to hear from the people that I’m one of the best.”
