Man United have remained undefeated in the Premier League since the 4-0 loss at Chelsea back in October, stretching to 21 games, and have lost just once in the last 18 games across all competitions but have drawn quite a good number of those matches.
United’s attack have faltered on many occasions this season and that is enough a reason for our lying fifth on the league standing after being stagnated in the sixth position for months.
Going 21 league games without defeat would have turned out as an impressive record had there been more wins but we have drawn 12 of the matches, nine of which were at home. We have failed to kill off matches and we have also found it difficult to break those lesser teams defenses we have played against.
And Michael Carrick has admitted that failing to make Old Trafford a fortress has cost us dearly this season. However, the win against Chelsea yesterday seems soothing.
Speaking ahead of the showdown clash with Chelsea on Sunday, the English midfielder had this to say
“I can’t compare us to any other team, to be honest. We concentrate on ourselves. We believe we will get better. We will improve. There are a lot of good signs.”
“But you look at yourselves and say if we were really struggling football-wise and were miles away then in some ways, you can’t accept it, but you can see why you are struggling.”
“But we have been playing so well for so long. The draws are killing us. In some ways you are better off losing one and winning one than doing what we have been doing having drawn so many.”
The Red Devils outclassed and outscored the Blues yesterday, the win threw wide the EPL race and brought back hope for ending the season in top four.
