Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has said that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has the complete backing from the first-team squad despite the club's average start to the current campaign.

The Red Devils started the season with a stellar 4-0 triumph over Chelsea at Old Trafford but they have since experienced a mixed run of results where they have failed to score more than once.

Speaking to DAZN, the Spain international said that the entire team is behind the head coach and they will fight to the end for him, he told: "[Solskjaer] is part of the family, he was here for many years as a player, he knows the club well and most importantly the whole team is behind him, we will fight to the death for him."

United are currently three points behind the top four of the Premier League and they face a tricky challenge on Monday night where they are scheduled to face Arsenal at Old Trafford.

The Mancunian giants have a dominant record against the Gunners in their home patch and they have not suffered a league defeat since the 2006/07 season. Emmanuel Adebayor found a late winner in that game.
