Reds keeper David De Gea keen to lift FA Cup
Manchester United goal keeper David De Gea is keen to put up a good show as his side faces Everton on Saturday in the FA Cup semifinal. The match will be played at Wembley where the 2004 champions will look to secure another win in order to book their place in the final.
David considered Roberto Martinez’s Everton side as difficult challenge because they are coming into this match after beating some pretty decent side and underestimating them would be a wrong way to look at things. He added that the team wanted to play the match at Wembley and hopefully this will bring about a good performance.
“It’s going to be a very tough game for us. We’re talking about a semi-final and the teams left in the competition have all knocked out decent sides,” David told the official matchday programme. “Everton saw off Chelsea and other good sides, so it will be a very tough proposition to go all the way, but we’re really determined to try to win the cup.
“We really wanted to get to the semi-final and be able to play at Wembley after not being there for a good few years, and we played really well against the West Ham in the replay,” he added. “Now we’re there we’re even keener to win another trophy for this club, our supporters and ourselves.”
De Gea has been named in the PFA player of the year award for the third time because of his sensational performances with consistency. Back in 2014 when the Reds cam up against Everton De Gea was at his absolute best as he saved a penalty and two jaw dropping saves towards the end of the match to hand his side a win over the Merseysiders at Old Trafford.
