Juan Mata tips Manchester United to beat Liverpool to Champions League spot
The Red Devils have had a poor start to the season and are languishing in 7th place, 11 points adrift of Liverpool. But more than just mathematics, what is indeed worrying for all the United fans is, there hasn’t been any sign yet that exudes confidence that this side can turn the tide under David Moyes.
Record signing Juan Mata is confident though that the team can still secure the Champions League spot, provided they put together a good run of results.
“The objective is to get to the Champions League spots,” Mata told Spanish TV station Canal Plus.
“This is Manchester United. When this club wins two, three or four matches in a row, it has a winner’s mentality.
“We are coming and I think we can do it, but we have to win a lot of games first.”
Mata has praised manager Moyes and has hailed him as a “great person” and says that the Scot has made him “feel important” again. Mata is also confident that Manchester United will bring in world class players in the summer to bolster the squad.
