Manchester United boss insists top four challenge still on

Manchester United manager David Moyes is refusing to give up on his side’s hopes of a top four finish after their goalless draw at Arsenal.

The Red Devils travelled to the capital on the back of dropping two points at home to Fulham over the weekend, but were unable to keep pace with their rivals.

Following Liverpool’s last gasp win at Craven Cottage, the Premier League champions now trail the fourth placed club by 11 points, which is effectively 12 when the Reds’ +34 goal difference is taken into account.

Despite his side having been disappointing for much of the season, Moyes feels that they can still compete for Champions League qualification:

“All I can do – and I keep saying it – is we will try and win the next game and pick it up,” he told Sky Sports.

“If there is one club in history who have been great at winning games in the second half of the season and putting pressure on the teams above it is Manchester United. We will continue to try and do that and make it work.

“We can only do our job the best we can. We want to play better. We cannot bother about other teams. We can only put pressure on by winning our games.”

Moyes’ men now have a weekend off due to their earlier elimination in the FA Cup, and are set to fly to Dubai for a training break.
