David de Gea backs midfielder Paul Pogba to bounce back.

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea is convinced midfield ace Paul Pogba will bounce back from his disappointing performance against Liverpool at Old Trafford.

The former Juve star was criticised for his display in United's 1-1 Premier League draw against rivals Liverpool as the Frenchman gave away a penalty for the opening goal (scored by James Milner) at Old Trafford last Sunday.

"He is really important for us. He's great in midfield, good in the dressing room. He's an amazing player," the Spain international told Sky Sports.

"At the beginning when you don't know the country, the players and the football it's a bit difficult. But you have fight, train more and try to focus and have belief in yourself.

"At the beginning it was difficult for me. With new football, new players and a new language everything was hard. But I kept believing in myself and kept fighting.

"In this country, in any country, you can make mistakes. We are humans. It is normal for a goalkeeper and players to make mistakes."

The former Atletico Madrid goalkeeper De Gea is hoping his side continue their fine form when they travel to the Britannia to face Stoke City on Saturday.

"We want to keep winning," he said. "We are in a good run and we need to stay at the same level, try to win many games and then we can see where we finish in the league."
