The Red Devils head to Merseyside for their first ever meeting with Liverpool in European competition looking to return to winning ways after the disappointment of their 1-0 defeat by West Brom at The Hawthorns on Sunday.
Spain international De Gea will be hoping to keep a clean sheet as the Red Devils look to head into next week’s last 16 return leg at Old Trafford with an advantage.
And the Manchester United goalkeeper is clearly looking forward to the clash.
De Gea shared the picture above on his personal Instagram account on Wednesday afternoon and wrote: “Ready for a big game! @EuropaLeague #mufc #EuropaLeague”
Manchester United have a good recent record against the Reds. They have won their last four Premier League fixtures against Liverpool since a humiliating 3-0 home defeat in March 2014.
