Manchester United stars wish fans a Merry Christmas

Published Add your comment

Manchester United stars presented supporters with an early Christmas present this week via the club’s official website.

Marouane Fellaini, Daley Blind, James Wilson, Phil Jones, Anders Lindegaard, Anderson and Juan Mata all feature on THIS minute-long video - and on it they wish their loyal supporters a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year.

Every day until the big one on December 25, Manchester United are releasing a short video showing their players and manager Louis van Gaal getting into the festive spirit - so keep your eyes peeled to the Red Devils’ official website over the next few weeks.

Man City inspiration

United may have taken some inspiration from local rivals Manchester City, whose fantastic Christmas videos have caused much amusement in recent years.

Aleksandar Kolarov became a cult hero at the Etihad Stadium thanks to his brilliant rendition of Jingle Bells in 2012 - click HERE to see the video - while City fans got to see the human side of their other star players, too.

A small gesture, perhaps, but these videos are appreciated by supporters - as the Facebook likes and shares testify.

Man United morale high

Morale inside the Manchester United camp is positive following four consecutive victories. The Red Devils can make it five straight wins by beating Southampton at St Mary’s on Monday night, before next Sunday’s home clash against bitter rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford on December 14.

Six days later United travel to Aston Villa, while Newcastle United are their opponents on Boxing Day.

Less than 48 hours later Van Gaal’s men play Tottenham in a lunchtime kick-off, before taking on Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium in what promises to be a bitterly cold afternoon on New Year’s Day.

Potential title bid on the cards?

United currently find themselves fourth in the Premier League table, 11 points behind league-leaders Chelsea, who are expected to battle it out with Manchester City for the title.

But a good run of form over Christmas may shoot Manchester United, against the odds, right back into the mix.
