Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata insists his club can still win this season’s Premier League title. The midfield maestro went on international duty with Spain as an unhappy man after the Red Devils failed to stay among the top four contenders.
However, the Spaniard has sent out warnings to rivals – Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United. He says they should beware of Jose Mourinho‘s men.
Speaking in an interview, the 28-year-old said: “It’s true that our start to the season didn’t go as we had hoped for, but we are there.
“The Premier League is a competition in which all the big clubs drop points and we remain hopeful that we can get closer to the top positions.”
The former Chelsea ace wrote an open letter on United’s official website, after the Red Devils failed to secure a win against Stoke.
Mata said: “As I’m writing this I’m feeling angry because the team played really well but we didn’t win.
“It was a pity, that’s the truth. My perception from the pitch was that we were playing a good game, creating chances, passing the ball effectively, but we couldn’t complete our job.
“We went for the victory from the beginning, we were better than Stoke and we felt that Old Trafford was supporting our effort. We have to give credit to Stoke goalkeeper Lee Grant for his great performance.
“With only one point instead of three we are not in the best mood to take the international break, but we are aware that, at our level, everything is possible this season.”
