Nemanja Matic backs Manchester United title credentials ahead of Liverpool clash

According to The Metro, Manchester United star Nemanja Matic has backed his side’s title credentials ahead of the weekend showdown at Anfield.

The 1-0 win against Burnley sent Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side three points clear at the top, a scenario that was unfathomable two months ago.

The Red Devils could potentially extend their lead to six points if they beat defending champions Liverpool on Sunday.

The clash at Anfield has to be the most significant match between the arch-rivals in recent years. The result on the night could make or break either team’s Premier League credentials.

The win over Burnley was not aesthetically pleasing but it was definitely effective. Matic believes being able to eke out such results is the trademark of a title-challenging side.

“I think this kind of win shows we are ready to compete for the title.”

Credit where it is due!

Matic believes United can get a fair idea of where they stand after facing Liverpool. Despite their troubles, the Merseysiders are one of the best teams in Europe. The veteran midfielder admits that United are ready and will be up for the game.

“We go there to compete with them, to see where we are (against) one of the best teams in the league, so I think that we are ready.”

Despite there being more than half a season to go, Matic believes United should be proud of where they stand.

While no prizes will be handed out for finishing top after 17 games, it is a testament to our growth that we find ourselves where are at the moment. The Serbian has dismissed the concept of luck and believes the team’s quality should be given its due.
