Manchester United star Jesse Lingard has stated that United would be top of the Premier League in any other year.
Manchester United are second in the table and have won 13 of their first 18 games but trail rampant Manchester City who are top by 11 points.
City have won a Premier League record breaking 16 consecutive games in a row and Lingard has said they will have to win every match for any chance of catching the league leaders.
“If we keep winning games that’s the most important thing,” Lingard said.
“With the squad we have got, we have to always believe in each game. Some games we will play badly and win and sometimes we will play well and lose.
“I think any other season we would be top with the points we have, so as long as we keep winning we will see where we are.”
The 25-year-old has scored four Premier League goals and made three assists this season and has scored three in the League cup which makes this his best season so far, in terms of goals, for United.
He said: “Obviously I’m hungry for more goals and any way I can help the team – assists, goals – and to win the game is the most important thing.”
United play Bristol City in the League Cup quarter-final this week.
