Juan Mata sends message to Man United fans about the title race

Juan Mata says there is still a very long way to go in the Premier League title race this season...

Juan Mata has told Manchester United fans that the Red Devils are not giving up hope of winning the Premier League title this season.

The Red Devils had to come from a goal down to earn a 1-1 draw with Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon as they were forced to settle for a draw against their bitter local rivals.

The result left Manchester United in sixth place in the Premier League title and 12 points behind leaders Chelsea.

The first ambition for Jose Mourinho’s men will be to force their way back into the top four before they bid to try and rescue their fading title bid.

However, Mata has suggested that the Red Devils could still have a big say in the Premier League title race this season.

Writing in his personal blog, Mata said: “As I’ve said before, we must focus on ourselves and play our best football.

“That’s what we have been doing for the last few weeks, with ambition and confidence.

“There are very important weeks ahead in the calendar, with games against our main rivals, and we must get as many points as possible to keep moving closer to the other teams.

“There’s still a long way to go…”
