Ex-chelsea star, Nemanja Matic has revealed to reporters what his new club must do to win the premier league. According to reports, the lanky Serbian who departed the Blues’ for the Old Trafford in a 40 million pound deal after falling out of favour with Blues’ manager Antonio Conte last season, has stated that in order for Manchester
United to win the league, they must strive to win all their matches.
He laid emphasis on the games against their fellow title contenders Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City, Liverpool and also Tottenham Hotspurs, who they only narrowly defeated Tottenham Hotspur – and that in the absence of Star Striker Harry Kane.
Speaking ahead of upcoming crunch ties against Chelsea and Manchester City, the player further stressed that United will have to continue to beat all their top opponents to stand a chance of clinching the title next may.
“You have Manchester City, us, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham so with five or six teams it is going to be a big fight until the end and we will see in May. He said regarding the title challenge.
“This is only 10 games but I’m happy that we are now second position, that we are there. We have a chance but we still have to improve.”
Anthony Martial salvaged a narrow over Tottenham with a dying minute strike, after a nil-nil draw at Liverpool earlier his month – which saw the Merseysiders pump high pressure on the United goal, only to be thwarted by an extremely impressive David Gea.
After suffering a surprise loss at newcomers Huddersfield Town the previous week, it appeared that the Mourinho masterclass had finally been compromised: and as it stands, Matic insists that the key to avoiding a slump and eventually clinching the title is to ‘brush aside the small teams’, and ensure to win the big games.
