MANCHESTER: David de Gea says his Manchester United teammates are desperate to clinch the title at the home of local rivals City.
If United can maintain their five-point lead over City going into the Manchester derby on April 30, an away win in that fixture at Eastlands will make them champions again.
That would be the ultimate revenge for their 6-1 mauling by Roberto Mancini’s side at Old Traff ord earlier in the season.
And De Gea admitted Sir Alex Ferguson’s squad have their sights set on clinching title No 20 at the home of their noisy neighbours.
“We have the title in our hands,” said the Spaniard.
“A five point advantage is good, but the derby against City will be key.
“We want to win this match and to celebrate winning the title.
“The last four matches are complicated, and after the defeat in Wigan we do not want any more problems.”
De Gea also reckons Chelsea face “mission impossible” in trying to beat Barcelona to reach the Champions League final.
He knows all about Barca from his time with Atletico Madrid and reckons Chelsea have little chance of overcoming them.
“Chelsea have a strong team but against Barca it’s nearly mission impossible,” said de Gea. “If Barca play at the level everyone knows they can, they will win in London and go through to the final.
“Fernando Torres is playing under too much pressure and that’s not good for a player.”
