Manchester United and England winger Jesse Lingard insists the Premier League finishes in May, and there’s no reason Manchester United cannot be challenging during 2017.
United, who trail Chelsea by 13 points, have won their last three Premier League games and Lingard has refused to give up on their title dream.
Speaking to the club’s official website, the 24-year-old said:
“If the lads stick together and win the games we should be winning then I do not see why we cannot be in a good position in May and challenging for the title,” the 24-year-old told the club’s official website.
“We have found our match rhythm now. A lot of players are playing their part and helping us win games.”
“I think the defence has been very good for us, particularly over the last three or four games.
“We need to keep that going over the Christmas period and if we can do that it will put us in a good place in January.”
