I know David. You know when you’re a goalkeeper or a striker you’re always in the spotlight, every time you miss a chance, or score you either get a bad or good headline. It’s same with David.‘He’s been in the spotlight for the right reasons for so long, now he’s going through a period where he probably feels he can do better. No, I don’t have worries because he is a strong character.‘There’s many different ways of getting back into your best performances, and of course I’ll sit down and speak with David, as I’ve done when he plays well. He’s not the reason we’re in sixth position at the moment.More: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man City‘You cannot say there is any complacency, David is not the type, he is competitive and wants to be the best.
