Manchester United Aren't Out Of The Title Race - Schneiderlin
Morgan Schneiderlin has warned onlookers to
write off Manchester United at their peril amid
concerns about the sideâ€™s lack of goals.
Saturdayâ€™s 0-0 draw at Crystal Palace meant
they have now played in excess of five hours of
football, including against Championship
opposition in Middlesbrough, and failed to score.
Their stuttering form has taken them four points
behind joint league leaders Manchester City and
Arsenal and prompted suggestions that the title
will soon be out of reach, but the French
midfielder is adamant that as long as they swiftly
return to winning games that will not be the case.
â€œ[Goals] will come if we keep believing,â€
Schneiderlin told Unitedâ€™s official website.
â€œWe will keep clean sheets, thatâ€™s not a problem,
and we will win games but we need to make sure
it comes quickly.
â€œWe have the players to score goals and we will
score goals. Itâ€™s not a worry for me. Weâ€™ve had
the chances and sometimes itâ€™s just a matter of
taking the time to make a good choice.
â€œIt was one of those days when we needed to be
strong. We are disappointed not to win. We came
to win the game so we need to make sure we win
the next game.
â€œOverall, when we look at the last three games,
we played very good against Everton, played good
against [Manchester] City and should have won
as we were the only team pushing to win and
[against Palace] weâ€™ve drawn so we could have
had nine points.
â€œAfter the Arsenal game, weâ€™ve shown good
character and spirit. We want to win the title so,
to win games, we need to score goals. Weâ€™ll have
to work hard and hope we bounce back.
â€œOf course we are [in the title race]. Itâ€™s still early
as we head into November so there are a lot of
games to be played but we are there. It doesnâ€™t
matter if you are second, third, fourth or fifth in
November. What matters is to be first at the end
of May and win the games.
â€œEvery team is going to go through a period where
they donâ€™t score goals and are going to be
unlucky. It will happen to the teams in front of us
for sure. Itâ€™s up to us to win games and overtake
