Morgan Schneiderlin has said he believes it is still possible for Manchester United to win the title.
United go into Tuesday’s match at home to Stoke 10 points behind surprise leaders Leicester, but midfielder Schneiderlin feels they can close that gap.
The France international admits there is no margin for error and has targeted a perfect end to United’s season — 15 wins from 15 Premier League matches.
“Every game is a big game for this football club, especially in our position now,” he told United Review. “We need to look at each game as a cup final and to win every one until the end of the season.
“We can see that the gap is getting a bit bigger in the table, but it [the title] is not impossible. 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.”
United beat Derby 3-1 in the FA Cup on Friday but lost their last league game, 1-0 at home to Southampton, and Schneiderlin said: “Our first feeling was disappointment after our performance and losing the game. It was hard to take, and 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.”
