Manchester United shot stopper David De Gea has revealed his delight with his current form for the club.    

The former Atletico Madrid goalkeeper, who managed to keep a clean sheet against league leaders Arsenal on Sunday, has only conceded 16 goals in 17 matches this season.  

Despite the league champions' faltering start to the season under new boss David Moyes, the Spaniard is pleased with his own performances of late. 

The stopper told United's website: “I’m very happy with it [my form],

“I feel like this is a particularly good moment in my career right now and I hope to continue in the same vein.

“I feel like I’m always improving and I want to make sure that continues.”

The keeper has managed to keep seven clean sheets so far this campaign, including two in his last two outings for the Red Devils, as he looks to go one further than last season's 11 clean sheets. 

De Gea is also close to making his centenary appearance for the club since his summer switch in 2011, which cost then manager Sir Alex Ferguson around £20m. 

Early in his United career it was unclear whether he would reach such a landmark, after a series of mistakes lead to him being rotated with Anders Lindegaard. 

The 23-year-old added : “I’ll be delighted to reach that figure [100 appearances]. It makes me very happy and I want to make it to 200 and then 300 appearances.

"Please, let it continue!”
