“I don’t think it is impossible to go from seventh to winning the League,” he said.

“Liverpool didn’t have European football last year and they went close to winning the league, so hopefully we can go one better next year.

“Just to target fourth place [and qualification for the Champions League] is a dangerous mindset to have. We are not players – or a club for that matter – who think like that and we will be going out to win the league. We believe we can do it.”

He also added that the side need to beat Liverpool in their upcoming International Champions Cup final despite it being only a friendly tournament.

“I know it’s only pre-season and it’s just a summer competition, but when United play Liverpool, it is always a big deal,” said Fletcher.

“We want to win every match and it is no different when we play Liverpool.

“Hopefully it’s a chance to make amends for last season’s defeat at Old Trafford and show how far we’ve come. We have just beaten Real Madrid, the European champions, and we now want to go on and beat Liverpool.” he added.
