Fletcher claims Manchester United have the fear factor
The Red Devils have had to come from behind to win on numerous occasions this season, due to defensive frailties, but still sit atop the table.
Traditionally, Sir Alex Ferguson’s men perform well during the hectic festive schedule, and Fletcher believes that it will be no different this year due to the opposition being wary of their attacking strength:
“The never-say-die attitude is ingrained in this club,” he is quoted by SkySports.
“It comes from the players, who believe in themselves, and opposition teams, who fear it.
“The club has such a history of it you almost expect it to happen. We have a great bunch of players with a great attitude.
“We will fight right to the very end. And the history of the club definitely plays a part.
“There is a psychological factor of going into the last 10 minutes knowing United will throw everything at them. They withdraw because they realise what is coming.”
The Scotland international went on to state that keeping calm has been key in scoring late goals:
“We are very patient. It is not route one and it is always with a purpose. We get the ball wide and try to create chances. Long may it continue.”
