08 December 2018

Manchester United defender Diogo Dalot is confident that his side can still finish in the top four this season despite now sitting six points behind Chelsea and Arsenal. We need the points to climb the table.

Try to work harder and try to do what we are doing to try to win as many games as possible.

"The first pretty much 20 seconds got the crowd up on their feet and it kind of gave us a buzz after that". Every day we are working with the movies and with tactical moments on the pitch before the matches, we are repeating that.
