Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has claimed that his side only aim to collect three points against Bournemouth on Wednesday night.
Jose Mourinho side suffered their second-worst Premier League defeat at their home of the season in the weekend, as they lost 1-0 to struggling West Bromwich Albion.

However, the Spanish shot-stopper has revealed that the Red Devils remain on course for the second position. And the Spaniard has insisted that the team will pull together and bounce back with a victory at the Vitality Stadium.
“It was a tough one to take,” De Gea told MUTV in reference to the Albion reverse. “It was a real blow and we’re all a bit down. It was such an unexpected defeat. But the good thing is we have got a game coming right up on the back of this defeat. It’s a real chance to lift ourselves and get back to winning ways.

“[Bournemouth] have had a really good season, especially in the performances and the results they’ve gained at home. They’re quick all over the field, they’ve got some speedy forwards. Quite a few of the front players have got a good eye for goal, as well.”
“It’s not an easy place to go. It’s quite a small, compact place, a difficult ground to go and get a result. All that considered, we’ve still got to make sure that we perform well to try and get those three points. That’s the key.”
“What we have got to make sure of now is that we finish second this season. That’s what we’ve got to hope for league-wise. So we’ve got to make sure we put in a good performance and get the win midweek and make sure we hold on to that second place.”
