Sir Alex's title mission

In the next week, Sir Alex’s men face Everton and Real Madrid and the Reds boss hopes that a healthy squad with plenty of competition will stand United in good stead in all competitions.

“We’ve got players back from injury, which is important, and I usually find that during the second half of the season when the big games come along everyone is fit! 

"We haven’t had a great run in the FA Cup for the last few years and haven’t been in the final for nearly six years, that’s a big attraction for us and this month we have the first game against Real Madrid, which is going to be a highlight.

“[In the league] you hope that the return we’ve had from the big games is going to be significant. We’ve won at Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City and we were 30 seconds away from a really good result at Tottenham. All in all we’ve had a good return from these kinds of games and hopefully they will prove significant at the end of the season.”

“You hope that the players realise that the league is there for them [to win]. The players have shown great appetite for it. We’re definitely in the right shape.”
