Manchester United could go top of the table with a win or draw against Burnely tonight ahead of their clash against Liverpool on Sunday. After a slow start to the season, United are unbeaten in their last 10 games in the league, and are level on points with Liverpool, with a game in hand.
United last won the Premier League in 2013 under Sir Alex Ferguson having narrowly lost to their noisy neighbours the previous year. David De Gea, who picked up the winners medal in 2013 believes United should not miss the opportunity to challenge for the title this season.
Speaking to MUTV, the United number 1 said “Yes I have been fighting for the title in a couple of seasons when Sir Alex was here. Now we are there again and it’s taken us a lot of time to get there to be honest and we cannot miss this chance.”
“We have to be very, very focused in every game and try to win all of them. Hopefully if we are good physically and mentally then we can be there and we can fight for sure for the Premier League.”
It’s true there is a lot to play yet, but of course it’s a chance to be there, to be top of the league.“
“It’s a good challenge for us. We will play against a difficult team in Burnley, away from home, but if we want to win the league then we have to win these type of matches. I’m saying the same thing, but all we can do is focus on each match, take it game-by-game and be 100 per cent focused.”
