Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea insists last seasons Champions remain in the title race, reports the Daily Star.

United fell to their second consecutive home defeat in four days on Saturday, losing 1-0 to Newcastle United.

But despite their failure to win any of their last four Premier League games, and having suffered five Premier League defeats already this season, De Gea insists the Champions cannot be ruled out of the title race just yet.

De Gea said: “To put it bluntly, it’s going to be a big task, but we’ll keep fighting to the end.

“We will try to be there or thereabouts, as we should be.

“The team isn’t playing well, especially at home. We’ve lost two games on the bounce and failed to score in both.

“We need to start winning because we’re falling off the pace at the top.”

Noticeably, United have failed to score in their last two home games which have both ended in 1-0 defeats to Everton and Newcastle.

And De Gea insists the attacking players United have at their disposal means they are sure to come good sooner or later.

He added: “We’ve not been up to scratch, there’s no hiding that.

“We’re struggling to create¬†clear chances in the opposition box and when that happens you get punished.

“We have to keep working hard and improving. On a personal note I feel good; I’m really happy and brimming with confidence.”
