David De Gea has warned his Manchester United team-mates that they must raise their game to beat an ‘improving’ Arsenal side on Thursday.

The Red Devils host an in-form Gunners side at Old Trafford this week, with the club looking for just their second victory in the league in their last eight outings.

‘I think from today [the draw against Chelsea] we should take a lot of confidence,’ said De Gea.

‘We know Arsenal are in a good moment, they play well, they are improving, so it’s going to be a big game.

‘I think the spirit of the team was great, the fight, the determination, the desire – it was great.

‘That should give us more confidence to win big games and to see again the team playing properly, scoring goals and winning points.

‘We knew we had to not concede for at least the first 20-25 minutes. We defended quite well; aggressive. The players gave everything and it was good to see the players running all over the place, trying to play and trying to fight for the club.’

Arsenal are three positions and five points better off than United in the table.

The Gunners have won four of their last five matches, losing 4-0 to Liverpool along the way.

United, by contrast, have won just one of their last five.
