Manchester United made it fifteen games unbeaten in the Premier League over the weekend, as Jose Mourinho’s side put Leicester City to the sword in comfortable fashion. The Red Devils are playing some brilliant stuff right now, and that has seen us close the gap on the top four.
At this point in time, the Old Trafford club are in sixth place, sitting just one point away from Liverpool in fifth, and two points adrift of Arsenal who currently hold that final Champions League qualification spot in fourth.
Now Zlatan Ibrahimovic has had his say on the situation and admitted that his team are working hard to be champions and they will not give up. Realistically, though, it feels as though a spot in the top four is the main goal at this point in time.
“We have missed out on a couple of games by not winning them. If we had won them the situation would have been totally different.” The Manchester Evening News quoted Zlatan Ibrahimovic as saying.
“We are working hard and we really want to reach the top four and the Champions League. To be champions, it will be hard but this is our aim and we don’t give up.”
“I think we are back in the hunt. It was a big gap couple of months ago but it is smaller now.
“We have been our own enemy. If we had won our games and got the points we should have got the situation would have been totally different, but okay now we look at other teams and hope they lose points.”
As the influential Swede says, all we can do is keep working hard and not give up. Alright, there has been many games where Manchester United have been their own enemy and dropped points needlessly, but that’s all in the past now and nothing will change that.
If you look at our upcoming fixtures, they look rather kind on paper and this is a real opportunity that we simply have to capitalise on. We need to string a few wins together, and based on the current form of both Liverpool and Arsenal, it shouldn’t be long before we break into that top four.
