When a club is in 6th position and 10 points away from the title, your expectations should be to fight for a Champions League spot. But you can trust Manchester United players to try to fly before they run.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has revealed that he wants United to fight for the title, and now Antony Martial has joined in, just because of a winning streak of 6 games.
“I think the overall picture is very good,” said the French forward. “That’s why we’ve done everything we can to win all our own games.
“We’ve come back nicely into the mix and we’re not far off third place now [Spurs occupy that spot with just three points more than United], and we’re five points off Liverpool, who we play at the weekend.
“I think we’re definitely moving in the right direction.
“I guess Chelsea have still got quite a healthy points advantage at the top, but you never know what can happen. We just have to keep on in the same way to try and finish as high as we possibly can at the end of the league season.”
