David de Gea: Manchester United goalkeeper regards himself as first choice

The Spaniard could find himself back on the bench for Saturday's FA Cup fourth round tie with Fulham as Sir Alex Ferguson continues to utilise the former Atletico Madrid man and fellow shot-stopper Anders Lindegaard.

De Gea made a number of superb saves during Sunday's 1-1 draw with Tottenham at White Hart Lane but was heavily criticised by Sky Sports expert Gary Neville for his weak punch which contributed to Clint Dempsey's last-gasp leveller.

The 22-year-old has made 22 appearances for the Red Devils this term and feels his form benefits when he is afforded more regular action with the side.

"From the moment I signed I considered myself the first-choice keeper at the club but it's down to the manager," De Gea told the Daily Mirror.

"He rotates us when he feels it's good for the team. But obviously I've played a few on the bounce now and that's positive.

"For a goalkeeper it's always important to have consistency and to be playing regularly. It's good for confidence and morale."
