David de Gea: Manchester United will need to fight six teams for the Premier League

by Marwan Harraz

Manchester United star David de Gea believes the club won’t only be fighting one team for the title next season as he calls on his teammates to improve.

The Spaniard was recently awarded with the club’s player of the season award after his consistently high performances all year long.

De Gea is undoubtedly United’s best player and so there’s no surprise that he’s won the award though there were some other decent candidates.

Romelu Lukaku has had a top debut season and Jesse Lingard has also performed at levels that weren’t expected of him previously.

Paul Pogba, despite criticisms has also put in decent numbers this campaign though there’ll certainly be more expected of him.

According to the Daily Mail, David said: “Next season is a new season and we have to improve in a number of areas. It is not just Manchester City we will be challenging next season, five or six teams fight for the Premier League.

“It is a case of hard work to be in there at the wire.”

Many expect the title race to be between the Manchester clubs once more next season as it was this season but David de Gea appears to think that’s not the case.

Tottenham, Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City are the traditional ‘top six’ clubs in England but there can only ever be one champion.

City were head and shoulders above the rest despite United’s decent campaign in Jose Mourinho’s second season in charge at Old Trafford.
