After another defeat for Manchester United, their slim hopes of challenging for the title look to be over, even though we are only in January. Manchester United is currently fourteen points a drift of current leaders Arsenal.
Despite the huge gap that has developed, David Moyes refuses to give up the fight for the title.
Moyes, whose side remain seventh in the table, said: “What we don’t do is throw the towel in until we can’t get there. The job is to finish first and we’ll try to do that.”
“This is a project,” added Moyes. “I know what I’m going to do and there will be changes as we go along the journey.
“It is a massive challenge. I hoped we’d be in a better position than we are, but we are not.”
Jose Mourinho still refuses to rule Manchester United out of the title race, but ad its they would need three teams to collapse for Manchester United to win the Premier League.
Next up for Manchester United is the second leg in the Capital One cup against Sunderland, which they must overturn a 2-1 deficit.
