Despite two straight scoreless draws, Manchester United midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin believes the team is still very much in the title race.
United is coming off two straight 0-0 draws in the league against Manchester City and Crystal Palace. Schneiderlin, 25, still believes that the goals will start coming and that they can keep up with rivals City and Arsenal at the top of the table.
“It’s frustrating when you don’t win games,” Schneiderlin told manutd.com. “We have the players to score goals and we will score goals. It’s not a worry for me. We’ve had the chances and sometimes it’s just a matter of taking the time to make a good choice.
“It will come if we keep believing. We will keep clean sheets, that’s not a problem, and we will win games but we need to make sure it comes quickly.”
United sits in 4th place in the Premier League standings with 21 points in 11 games.
“Overall, 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 today we’ve drawn so we could have had nine points,” Schneiderlin said.
“After the Arsenal game, we’ve shown good character and spirit. We want to win the title so, to win games, we need to score goals. We’ll have to work hard and hope we bounce back.”
Schneiderlin is convinced that his team is still very much in the race for the league title, despite being four points behind two strong sides in City and Arsenal.
“Of course we are [in the title race],” Schneiderlin said. “It’s still early as we head into November so there are a lot of games to be played but we are there. It doesn’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.
“Every team is going to go through a period where they don’t score goals and are going to be unlucky. It will happen to the teams in front of us for sure. It’s up to us to win games and overtake those teams.”
