De Gea said in an interview recently that the new Premier League penalty kick rules are a bit unfair to the goalkeeper.
In last week's 1-3 loss to Crystal Palace, De Gea saved Ayou's penalty, but the referee signaled a heavy penalty and Zaha then scored the second penalty.
In an interview with BT Sport, he said: "I just leaned forward a little bit. For me, it was a good save."
"I understand why this new regulation should be implemented."
"But even if you can lean forward, it's already very difficult to save a penalty. And now we have more restrictions."
"The player who took the penalty kick did not miss the penalty. I don't understand why they could replace the player who took the penalty kick."
"If you give another person the opportunity to take a penalty kick, then he won't be as stressed as the person who took the first penalty kick."
"I think it's a bit unfair."
When asked if he is still the first goalkeeper of the club, he revealed that Suo Shuai told him that he is still the first goalkeeper.
"I have been here for many years. I am very experienced and I think I have been at a very good level for a long time."
"The coach, club and teammates have confidence in me."
"I am very happy to be here and I look forward to staying here for a few more years."
"I hope the club can win the championship, and I also hope that I can remain the first goalkeeper here for a long time."
