PROPPER'S FOND UNITED MEMORY

24 November 2017

Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Davy Propper is hoping to create more good memories at Old Trafford when the Seagulls head to the north west on Saturday.

The Dutchman was part of the PSV Eindhoven team that held the Red Devils to a goalless draw in the Champions League, and will be heading back to the stadium exactly two years later with the Seagulls.

He said, “It will be nice to play there again. I played there once for PSV in the Champions League. It’s a great stadium with a great atmosphere and I’m really looking forward to it.

“The result was 0-0 and we did well. It was the year we qualified through the group stage.

“We defended well, and in the end they couldn’t find the solution, so it was a great result for us.”

United are currently on a club record run of 38 games unbeaten at Old Trafford, and Propper admits that although Albion need to improve their performance from Monday, he explained that the record must end sometime.

“We shall see what happens, but we will have to play better than we did against Stoke. It doesn’t matter who plays for them, they are a good team and we have to be strong as normal.

"That record has to be broken at some point, and hopefully we can do it. Maybe we can be a bit freer in how we play.

“But of course you want to win and there is always a bit of pressure in every game, so we will see what we can do.”

The 26-year-old explained how he is settling into life on the south coast and feels he is now up to speed with Premier League football.

“I’m really enjoying it. I’m happy to play here, and we are doing great. We just have to keep doing what we have been and we’ll stay up.

“I am feeling better and better. In the first couple of months you are getting used to playing over here and with new teammates too, but now it feels more normal.”
