Erik ten Hag believes that his Manchester United team could challenge for the Premier League title this season.
The Red Devils have been excellent this season as they currently sit third in the league, five points behind both Arsenal and Manchester City although the Gunners do have a game in hand.
United had a rough start to the season, losing their two opening games in embarrassing fashion but landed on their feet and haven’t looked back since.
The Dutch manager believes that his side can challenge for the title.
What we have to do is to put us in the right position in April, so our thinking can only be on the next game. We always have to better than the previous game, and think about game for game – that is the energy and focus.’ he said.
‘It means that we have to win on Sunday and we have to collect the three points against Leicester. That demands a lot of energy and it demands high standards.’
‘We are in the right direction but we have to fight for it,’ he continued.
‘That is two ways: one is the Europa League the other is in the Premier League. So we know what we have to do. We have to see it game to game, and to fight to get back into the Champions League.’
