David de Gea insists Manchester United are still targeting Premier League success this season.
The Prem trophy has not been at Old Trafford since 2013 with United having fallen a long way behind their rivals in recent years.
They are closer to the top at this stage than they have been for some time though, just five points off leaders Tottenham.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have a game in hand on Spurs and Liverpool, having played just 11 games so far.
And De Gea is starting to dream of winning the title, saying: “Now I think, this year, the Premier League is very open, many teams are fighting for the title.
“We have to dream, we have to believe that we can win the Premier League this year and go for it.
“It's a very strange season. To be honest, there are many teams fighting for the top place, so I think we need to be very focused every game and try to win the Premier League.”
De Gea kept a clean sheet as United drew with rivals Manchester City on Saturday in a dull encounter at Old Trafford.

The Spaniard added: “They didn't create too many chances, maybe two or three big chances, but I think, against them, it was defensively a great game.
“So we need to be happy, of course, for the clean sheet but maybe it's not enough, you know. We played at home, we always want to win, especially against Man City, so I think we missed a big chance to beat them.

“But against players like [Kevin] De Bruyne, [Raheem] Sterling, good players, you have to be focused for the 90 minutes. So we did it, I think we showed our confidence in defence. I think the players played really good.
“For me, the most important thing in the team is the defensive part so we showed again that we can defend good.
“We can be very strong in the back four and I think, the whole team, we pressed really high.”
