Scholes backs United's will to win in title run-in

Published Add your comment

Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes believes the club's will to win gives them the edge over Chelsea in the Premier League title run-in.

United lead The Blues by three points going into their summit meeting at Old Trafford on Sunday, with the winner set to take the initiative in the title race with two games remaining.

And Scholes believes United's never say die attitude gives them the edge.

"Probably that will to win when we’re down, like we were at West Ham (in early April). We always believe that whatever position we’re in, we can turn it around.


"We’d rather be 2-0 up than 2-0 down at half-time, of course, but sometimes that happens and you just have to fight back. We’re a team that never stops.

"Most of the players here have won the title in the past and we hope that will stand us in good stead."

The former England midfielder, who is looking for his 10th league title in the red of United, adds that the pain of losing out to Chelsea last season by such a tight margin has driven his side to make sure they succeed this season.

"We were just as hungry last year and lost it by a point. It’s not nice when you see others teams celebrating. We want to make sure it's us this year."
