Morgan Schneiderlin shares the frustration of Manchester United’s supporters, but insists Louis van Gaal’s men could still win the Premier League title.
Schneiderlin started last Friday’s 3-1 win over Derby in the FA Cup in what was a more fluent display from Van Gaal’s men. But United’s form on the whole has been disappointing this season and the 1-0 home defeat to Southampton 10 days ago was their sixth Premier League defeat of the season and left them five points adrift of fourth-placed Tottenham.
United host Stoke at Old Trafford on Tuesday night looking to make up 10 points on leaders Leicester with just 15 games remaining, but midfield enforcer Schneiderlin thinks they could still make a title for the title.
“We can see that the gap is getting a bit bigger in the table but it [the title] is not impossible,” Schneiderlin told United’s matchday programme.
“Every game is a big game for this football club, especially in our position now. We need to look at each game as a cup final and to win every one until the end of the season.
“For the second part of the season we want to improve our game and win as many matches as we can to be a contender for the title and be in the Champions League, because that’s very important to this club.
“We understand the frustration of everyone – we feel it as well. We want to bounce back and win now, though. We’ve had a bit of time to reflect on that last league game and now it’s up to us to improve.
“We want to win in front of our fans because they deserve the best and they are used to the best. We want to give them that.”
