Manchester United star Morgan Schneiderlin is adamant that the club can still win the Premier League title despite their recent struggles in front of goal, according to reports from the London Evening Standard.
The Red Devils have now drawn three games 0-0 in succession following their stalemate with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday, a result which dropped them from third to fourth on the Premier League table.
And United’s lack of goals have been criticized by fans, pundits, and even their opponents, with Louis van Gaal’s men scoring just 15 goals in the English top flight so far this season.
However, Schneiderlin, who was signed from Southampton during the summer, believes that their goal drought will end sooner rather than later and that they can recover to continue challenging for the title.
“Of course we are [in the title race]. It’s still early as we head into November so there are a lot of games to be played but we are there,” he said.
“It doesn’t matter if you are second, third, fourth or fifth in November. What matters is to be first at the end of May and win the games.
“Every team is going to go through a period where they don’t score goals and are going to be unlucky. It will happen to the teams in front of us for sure. It’s up to us to win games and overtake those teams.
“We have the players to score goals and we will score goals. It’s not a worry for me.
“We’ve had the chances and sometimes it’s just a matter of taking the time to make a good choice. It will come if we keep believing.”
United will host CSKA Moscow in a Champions League clash on Tuesday before facing a defensive West Bromwich Albion side at Old Trafford this weekend.
