Whilst faint, there remains a glimmer of hope remains that Manchester United can still win the Premier League.
Following Man City’s 1-0 victory at the Etihad on Monday, Roberto Mancini’s team are firmly in the driving seat, whether he would like to admit it or not.
It is unlikely that United will overcome Man City’s 8 goal advantage in terms of goal difference, but City face a tough trip to St James Park tomorrow and with Newcastle in decent form and looking a tough side to tame, United could very well capitalise on any slip up.
So as long as a possibility remains that United can once again supplant City at the top of the table, Javier Hernandez insists that United will fight:
“We will keep fighting because there are two games left.
“The possibility remains for us to win the title.
“Some people say the chance is very low. Some say they are high. But we will keep fighting until the end.”
Fighting talk from the diminutive Mexican who is set to start against Swansea in Danny Welbeck’s absence, and what better way to show his fighting spirit than getting a goal or two against Swansea?
if utd win it or not,they already know there is somebody better then them in england
Tomorrow will finally decide the destination of the title. If Man City beat Newcastle then the title is there’s and we can’t do anything. Norwich drawing with Arsenal may be a good thing. The top four is completely open again and Newcastle now have a massive chance. There is a lot for them to play for. I’m sure they would have tried anyway because they have done really well this season.
Man Utd can only go out and win their matches and be professional. If Newcastle get any result then we need to be ready to take advantage. Its been that kind of season that should an opening arise, we can’t say 100% that this Man Utd team will take it. We could just as easily drop points against Swansea.
Hernandez will probably get a chance tomorrow against Swansea and he needs to perform now. He hasn’t had a great second season, but that was down to injuries and fatigue. However we need him now to find his clinical finishing and start scoring goals again.
We put eight behind Arsenal so why not go for ten against Swansea? Never say die!
We can only hope and have some belief that Newcastle might get a result. Cisse, Ba and Ben Arfa are enough reasons to think its possible. They beat us 3-0 at their ground.
I think we can say now that Man City are Champions this season. We had it in our hands but we threw it away big time. Congratulations to Man City and they’ve been the best team over the whole course of the season.
They had a tough away game today bit there big players rose to the challenge and won the game. The teams spine of Hart, Kompany, Toure, Silva and Aguero has been immense for them and they have stayed fit all season which is huge.
It might have been different for us if Vidic was not injured all season and if Fletcher was available. The truth is that our team is not as strong as Man City. Ferguson has been brilliant and is the reason we have even challenged. He will know that this team today is not anywhere as good as it was in 2008.
We can’t go out and get 6-7 new players because that is not how it works. We will hopefully get 3 new players, maybe if we are lucky 4, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we only got 1 or 2 to be honest. We have not been heavy spenders for nearly 4-5 years, and our net spending is below Stoke and Sunderland for the last 5 years.
Our best hope is that the young players like De Gea, Jones, Smalling, Evans, Rafeal, Cleverely, Welbeck and Hernandez will step up and improve their game next season. Man City will spend again and get players like Hazard. We will have to see what we can manage in the market but I doubt we will be challenging for the £30 million players.
