David De Gea says that Louis van Gaal is working hard to instil confidence within Manchester United’s players following his arrival at Old Trafford.

United have failed to find consistent form under the Dutchman so far this season but moved up to seventh in the Premier League with a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on Saturday.

In terms of the league table and the position we’re in we are not far away

And goalkeeper De Gea has revealed how Van Gaal’s approach has galvanised United’s squad.

De Gea told United’s website: “He is just instilling a lot of confidence into all the players, and because he is putting his confidence into us we need to make sure we do our job for him and keep getting the victories we need. We must do that week in, week out.”

The Spaniard continued: “In terms of the league table and the position we’re in we are not far away.

“All we can do is work hard and try to keep improving and it’s important that we completely concentrate on ourselves and not look too much at others.”
