De Gea tells Man Utd teammates: Now focus on Aston Villa

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has told teammates to switch sights to their clash with Aston Villa after last night's defeat of Wolves.

The 1-0 win was a gruelling affair and the games are coming thick and fast as usual at this time of year, with just 72 hours' rest until Villa arrive at Old Trafford to begin 2021.

“The players have to recover well, we play a lot of games, they run a lot, one of the most important things is to recover well," De Gea told MUTV.

“It was a massive win, we scored at the end of the game, a tight game against a good team, this is the way to be at the top of the league, but the most important thing is to be ready for Aston Villa and recover well.

“They're a very good team, they defend very well, have good counter attacks, players with pace up front, it was a tight game, they have good chances, but scoring in the last minute is always good, the three points are massive for us."
