Depay post-Liverpool

United youngster Memphis Depay has confirmed that he is aware he is still getting to grips with the rigours of Premier League life, but said that he thought he reacted well to being subbed against Liverpool.

The Dutch star was withdrawn by Louis van Gaal at the halfway point at Old Trafford last weekend, and another abject display led to questions being asked over how long it will take him to properly settle.

The player himself though is confident, describing the Premier League as a different level and acknowledging that he has things to work on.

"It’s a new experience for me playing in the Premier League so I still have to improve. I think my reaction (to being substituted) was good. I think about it and I’ll improve in training so I can do better in a game.

"I learned so many things here. But it’s on a different level, the competition is different. I have to learn in the Premier to improve there. I have learned a lot of things from PSV but it’s different."

No Valdes exit

Meanwhile, Victor Valdes won’t be making a move to Chelsea, despite the fact Thibaut Courtois is struggling with lengthy injury issues.

Rumours had speculated that Mourinho might turn to Old Trafford outcast Valdes, but the latest on the matter is that he doesn’t want the Spaniard.

De Gea's Champions League dream

Last but not least it’s over to David de Gea, who has tweeted to say he ‘can’t wait’ to play in the Champions League against PSV this evening.

Van Gaal’s men take on the Dutch champions in Holland, but with De Gea having recently penned a new deal he’s in good spirits, and a win is what’s expected against fairly limited opposition.
